    Been really bugging me .... It's an 140 TDI but its done just over 100K.
    It's been serviced fully and motorway driven up untill last 10k (and than i got it :rockwoot:) also the DSG box should had an oil change at 80k (i hope but will check)

    I'd love a remap but after 100K all the parts rub into position and I don't want to have problems with the turbo, gearbox or anything ....


    Need some input please guys

    100K is nothing on a modern diesel so stop worrying and get it remapped.

    Maybe that`s why you so much torque madluke! Your car`s engine is well run in and more loose/free reving then everyone else`s.:thumbsup:

    It's self explanatory, exactly what i meant with regards to giving the extra power that "it's not used to"

    My last car, a vw bora pd115 was mapped by the previous owner at 60k who i bought it from at 119k, i sold it in good running order at 180k and it was still on the original clutch and turbo. The clutch was just starting to show some signs of slippage.
