    Just had my a4 1.8t 190 serviced ,all seems well so the time is here for the stage 1 remap . Anyone have a sound recommendation for where to take it near Southampton area ? Also do I need to check/ change any standard components ? As I read conflicting things saying you should or shouldn't worry ! Cheers , also changed gearbox oil for some hypoid oil and has massively reduced the infamous crunch from 1st to 2nd to almost nothing :)

    To be fair, if you take it somewhere decent they should do a full health check for you anyway , so any issues will be highlighted then..

    Im at the same point as you mate, cars had some love and waiting a remap! I dropped in at Regal Autosport in portswood, southampton to get a feel of the place. For a revo map on my 190 1.8t they are charging £299 plus vat (£358 i think). This apparently will give 225bhp. For a proper health check pre map is another £85, so unsure on that bit!
    Seemed ok there, nice people and appeared proffesional. Only thing that put me off was the lack of VAG cars there, apart from a porsche if that counts!
    Thats as far as my remap quest has gone so far.
