    Hi everyone,

    Signed up a couple of days ago so thought I would introduce my self on here and post a couple of pictures of the new car, It's a MY2006 2.0T Quattro. It's having a Cam-belt change and Oil service at a local VAG specialist next week then Im hoping to add a couple of OEM mods over the next couple of months.

    Get it mapped. The 2.0T responds well and drives amazing after a remap.

    Thanks for the welcome Sandra, nice to see an active forum.

    I picked it up on Friday so haven't really spent much time driving it. My first impression was it doesn't sound as nice as my previous 6 pot BMW but the performance certainly makes up for it.

    A remap is on the cards but for now I want to get all the maintenance out of the way, having a full service done next week when it goes in for the cam belt change and Im also having the coolant/brake fluid renewed whilst it's at the garage.

    What sort of gains am I looking at ?

    Thanks mate.

    Yep, the K03 20T is transformed with a map, easy an extra 40bhp but you would swear it was more when behind the wheel.
    Nice car, enjoy.

    Im very surprised at this comment seeing as you have 52 posts..........do a search for remap, have a read, and then enjoy if and when you get it done.

    A remap is optimasation and recalibration of the engine management system in short.

    On these cars, you gain a minimum of 40bhp and much more torque - as said above it feels like a lot more!

    If you go for the remap,it would be advised to get the uprated diverter and also a decent induction kit to free up the rev range and then there is also the nice gargling sound it makes when driving (but not loud in a chavish way),depending on last service a new set of plugs shakes them up again ,you be looking 240-250 bhp with a standard stage one

    The coil pack probably do if they've not already been done... Mine had them done under the recall.
