    I am looking into having my motor remapped.

    Can someone else confirm that to remap my motor I will need a new chip fitting?

    Has anyone else just had this done?

    I thought it was just a flashing of software?

    My 2001 model needed a new chip, but it may well vary according to your engine management unit and if your tuner of choice has the right lead to match the cars VAG socket. Takes a bit longer than a flash but not a problem.

    How much did you pay and who did you have your motor chipped by?

    I've posted all the details under my thread in the diesel forum. See

    2.5TDi V6 quattro Sport 180hp Turbochip

    Now done over 40k miles with chip without problem.
    I note that your car is a Tiptronic. Be VERY careful that modifying the engine output doesn't screw up the auto. I'm sure theres a thread somewhere about someone having problems but can't find it right now. Ask your proposed tuner about it before you do anything.

    Cheers for the advice!

    I'm gonna leave this until the spring now but I will keep all that you have said in mind!
