    Had my 1999 210 S3 chipped by Superchips last month just after I bought it, the difference is huge and IMHO well worth the £375 it cost me,my previous A4 1.8T was superchipped just after I bought it as well, and I'd certainly recommmend anyone with a 1.8T of any model to get it chipped and certainly the first place to start when tuning.

    i personally would recomend REVO, but there are lots of different places that can cater specifically to what you want. REVO are quite punchy in their delivery, Custom Code are more progressive. Superchips i think are somewhere in the middle.

    Yes mate, make sure you get the yellow spring. After i had mine Revo'd they wanted to put it in to make it run lovely.

    I found with my Jabba map the car ran better on the original green spring, tried the yellow but didn't like it...

    A decent tuning company will know which to put in surely thats not for the driver to decide!
