    Remap advice

    Hey up.. I'm looking to remap my 10 plate A3 S line 1.4TFSI to stage 1. Just wanting some advice on the positives and negatives of it? - Would it effect reliability etc? Not really into this whole car modding thing but I fancy a bit more kick in my A3. Advice would be appreciated, thanks!
