    Re-Map Reversal?

    Let's hope they actually know what they are doing, rather than poking around in the dark. Get them to do a VCDS scan and get the data on here for an opinion. If they don't know what VCDS is... then you need to get an expert opinion from someone like @Rick @ Unicorn Motor Dev.

    Re-Map Reversal?

    Mine absolutely flies up the steepest hills. It runs On Shell Nitro and Archoil 6400-D added once every 4 months or so. It's bog standard!

    A3 2.0 TDI 2009 ERG removal and clean guide please !

    What is your engine designation? Mine is CBAB. This is the exploded (!) view. Undo the feed pipe on the right and the 3 bolts. Off it comes for a good clean, and it will need it! Part nos for gaskets etc are here: http://audi.7zap.com/en/rdw/audi+a3+s3+sportb+lim+qu/a3/2009-646/1/131-131040/

    A3 2.0 TDI 2009 ERG removal and clean guide please !

    This is what I used, the back bolt of the 3 is a bit tricky, but it's well worth doing. Once you get the hang of it, it's a 15 minute removal :-) http://www.swdubs.co.uk/how-to/egr-valve-cleaning-replacement-audi-a4-tdi

    emissions fix

    Rather than worry about what might happen if... so no, I am not bothered about the fix for a possible tightening of emissions past 2018. I take comfort from all the other 2009 diesels from all manufacturers. They all need to pass the MOT. I can't see the MOT station going: "Oh here comes a VAG...

    emissions fix

    They will not being going near mine. They lied and screwed up. Fine. I don't see why that should affect my car, which runs fine. I'm not jumping cos Audi say jump. When my warranty ended years ago, they didn't care what happened to my car after that, did they? If they really want to make amends...

    Best Spec Clutch & Flywheel Offers Available

    I buy lots of things for business and hobbies from the USA and it is very rare these days to escape duty, VAT and admin charges, no matter who the carrier is. The USA folks normally put the shipping charges in with the total so you pay the 25% odd on that too. They rarely put reduced charges...

    Audi A3 Roof Rails (Fake From China)

    $220 for fake stick-on rails that can't carry any load and are highly dangerous? Yes they are a great idea. If you believe that then you are more dumb than your post suggests!

    Getting back into an Audi... TDI or TFSI?

    Mine too, no DPF problems so far, as for the filthy clogged up EGR...:whistle2: You can't remove the EGR without ditching the DPF, sadly.

    EGR Cooler - Crazy Expensive - any experience on this?

    Sadly on 1.6TDI (mine was forever going into limp mode from new :-() the EGR is at the back of the engine and the DPF needs remoiving AFAIK to get to it. On the 2.0 TDi CR it is at the front and pretty easy to whip off and clean (or throw away if are doing a DPF delete as well). Sorry to say...

    EGR Cooler - Crazy Expensive - any experience on this?

    You're pumping a lot of **** into your engine, that does matter! I suppose if you have no DPF you are pumping out 1/100th of the soot (wild guess) that a passing bus does. I have an EGR and am able to remove it and clean it periodically. Even with the reducer gasket fitted a bit of gunk gets...

    Tints in London

    Allright mate, I've been looking at getting my back 3 done on my 3-door too, I called a firm nearby twice yesterday but they didn't answer their phone. I'm just a couple of miles from Tottenham so if it will £100, then I wouldn't mine being 2nd on your cousins round next week?

    Clutch question: Could you use 170 CR parts in 140CR - and then Stg1 remap?

    They have plenty of expertise from what I can gather, and that is a good price too. From what I can gather researching DPF removal for quite a while, it seems likely that a particulate test will be introduced for diesels during the MOT, which is why I have decided not to delete mine. Not sure...

    Clutch question: Could you use 170 CR parts in 140CR - and then Stg1 remap?

    Thanks, helpful advice from AudiSport yet again! I am going to wait for Rick and take it from there, but Storm do seem very good, as you say. This was the post I was referring to, states Stg1 doesn't need loads of logging and VCDS etc, only if you want a highly tweaked custom map, which I...

    Clutch question: Could you use 170 CR parts in 140CR - and then Stg1 remap?

    I agree buddy, just crazy! I am waiting to hear back from our very own Rick about mapping via Android, my car is 03/09 so I don't know if it can be done but if it can I will be going Unicorn for sure!!!!!

    Clutch question: Could you use 170 CR parts in 140CR - and then Stg1 remap?

    Yup you are right, for CBAB and CBBB it is the same number for 2009MY - 022 141 015 S. So the same for 170 and 140 outputs, hmm might need something a bit beefier then. Sachs organic / another LUK, any ideas please?
