    Good evening,

    I am buying an A3 1.9 tdie sportback 2009. I know the 2.0l is better but I have the deal of the century on the 1.9l.
    However I would like to bump the power/torque, what is the best way to go without it costing me an arm or a leg and I need it it to be fairly not noticable to my girlfriend's ears.... naughty but I can go backward ;)

    Thank you for your advises.

    If she has driven it before then yes. As you will be stuck into your seat with a nice upgrade in torque ;)

    If you have DPF it is advised this is removed for the remap as it can cause issues, thats when it gets more expensive
