    Had several cars remapped by Shark, including my S3 and A4 Avant TDI 170. Quality maps, loads more power and very smooth. I wouldn't go anywhere else.

    Individual settings may vary hence the differences from car to car.

    Running Shark Stage 1 on mine, went back & got a Stage 1 DPF delete a couple of months later. I couldn't imagine going back to a standard map now, it would be horrific.

    Got mine done on Sat by Brodster; it's amazing!

    Changes the whole dynamic of the car...

    I'm sure further stages do the same again, but if the car had left the factory with Shark stg1 as standard, they'd have sold WAY more.


    It's very good. Really.

    I didn't realise u had to run it in for a while for the map to bed in?
    I was under the impression it was instant?
    Going to get Brodster to map my tractor when the warranty runs out :)

    I'm Sharked up with both ECU and DSG maps from Shark. Most annoyed that I had to travel 8 miles to get there! LOL.

    107 miles for me, massive ball ache of a trip last time, took 3 hours because of bad traffic instead of 2 hours.

    Got there, they applied the Map patch, 8 mins later....on way home.

    P.S. it's speed camera/traffic light city.

    Another happy SHARK customer here.

    The STS box is very useful and easy to use too. Well worth having IMO.
