    Ok I will start.

    My car is a 143 bhp 2010 A4.

    I find my best settings are Map 1 + 2

    Lets see what everyone has there's set at so maybe we can all tweak a bit or see if most people agree on a setting

    Dunno yet, done 5 miles on 0 + 1, more testing next week but one foot down bit impressed me.

    I'm assuming he means map one (with all 'map' pins open) with +1.

    That's what I'm running at the minute and I like it. Nice and progressive but with good punch above 1.5k revs. I think that I'll just have to turn it up to +2 or +3 at some point once I have more miles on it but for now it seems fine! :)

    I tried map 3 but found that it was just too aggressive when the turbo came in for everyday driving.

    Only had the box a day but loving it,tried map 2+1 and then set it to 3+1 and my god the car goes,have left it at this setting but going to try other settings once the weather gets a little better.One thing i have noticed is that when i set the cruise con at 70mph this morning the car seemed to be on off the power constantly where as pre box it was smooth,i contacted Andrew and he said it could be due to the map kicking in around 2K revs,i will monitor how it goes anyone else noticed this?That said a steady 10mile trip into work today mainly on dual carraigeways and i had 56MPG most ive had on the same run taking it easy pre box was 50MPG.

    I had the same thing with map 3 do looked at the charts and changed to map 1 as it looked smoother and that sorted the problem. I found it was quite harsh in it's delivery so I'm now sat at on map 1 +1 but think I might move it to 1 +2 soon to try it out. :)

    Many/anyone fitted the dtuk box to their S4?

    Just had my ass handed to me by an RS4 lol was expected but just wanted him to floor it. Now I want more power and Revo is out of my grasps at the minute :( the dtuks are around £500/6000 I believe

    No, but thinking about it :)
    Not going to entertain a remap or pulley swap whilst under warranty, so the tuning box is the 'safer' option.
    Having said that I am not wanting for more power just now, it goes like sh1t off a chrome shovel as it is, but it would be very interesting to see what the box opens up.....and I like the idea of making RS4's work for their money :)

    Wait until you're out of warranty then and stage 2 it, then the shoe will nicely be on the other foot ;)

    The car is 2009 so warranty isn't an issue but the cost of remaps and pulley upgrades isn't doable right now with a pending house purchase but 50bhp for £400 seems reasonable.

    Just want to hear from anyone who has one on their S4

    Did I read that correctly, 50-56mpg, on a 170HP Avant; I'm not even getting 40mpg in a 150HP 2.0 TDi Saloon!?
