    Hey,

    Got my A3 2.0 tdi 170 remapped (using a Bluefin). All is good and its definitely nippy :)

    Only thing is when I put my foot down and rev hard I get quite a strong smell of diesel in the car? This has only started since the remap. Is that just an innocent side effect of the remap or something I should worry about?

    If you remove the map, does the smell go away? Could be that the map increases pressure, are there any visible signs of diesel
