    Evening all,
    Looking to give the little girl a bit more oomph. Got a 170tdi S Line Sportback with the PD engine. 2007 (57). Now do I go for an ecu upgrade or a tuning box and which ones are favourite with you all? Cheers

    I would go for an ECU re-map at a well know company, does your model have a DPF? Any other mods?

    Go with a DPF removal and a Re-map for some extra power. Maybe an exhaust system....

    Go for PDF removal and remap. Did it on my slide a4. Best 300 quid I have ever spent. I used viezu in bromsgrove. They were very helpful
