    Looking into a 1.8tfsi 160bhp - do they remap well?

    Hi guys - looking to get a b8 and would prefer the 2.0tfsi but my budget is £9.5k so they are out of my price range so looking at the 1.8tfsi 160bhp instead. I've looked into it and it looks like they can map to around 210 bhp and 230lbs of torque... My question is how does this transfer to...

    Best Engine Cabriolet Choice? & Tuning Questions

    This has been useful guys I won't be looking to buy until the end of February but I'm leaning towards the 1.8t - it has good tuning potential and considering I only do a 26 mile round trip with 50% country roads and 50% town driving I won't really feel the benefit of the diesel assuming the...

    Best Engine Cabriolet Choice? & Tuning Questions

    Thanks for all the replies guys whilst I am still undecided between the 1.8 and the 2.5 it's been really useful... I'm leaning towards the 1.8 is love the better mpg in the 2.5 but I think iv had enough of listening to a diesel for a while.

    Best Engine Cabriolet Choice? & Tuning Questions

    Looking at spending around 4k I think the 1.8t with a good remap sounds like the best option... A remap will give the power of the 3.0 and the torque of the 2.5tdi with a good sound and fuel consumption... 1.8t it is :)

    considering an Audi A4 2.5L TDI 163 Sport Cabriolet - need advice/opinions

    this is sounding more promising! definitely going to test drive a stock one but think It would be difficult to find one already remapped. I dont expect it to be a racing car just hoping it packs enough punch to keep a smile on my face which with a few choice mods I think i could manage.

    considering an Audi A4 2.5L TDI 163 Sport Cabriolet - need advice/opinions

    Interesting... which dealer is this as for sale? Did you own the car when it was remapped? If I could get it close to 200 with a remap I think I would be more than happy! If the online specs can be trusted the Audi would be just under a second slower to 60 than my celica which I think the extra...

    considering an Audi A4 2.5L TDI 163 Sport Cabriolet - need advice/opinions

    thanks for the replies guys! I am hoping to test drive one at the weekend - unfortunately I think you're right. It's probably a bit too lumpy to what I am used to, I was hoping the diesel would pack a bit more punch and it's a shame because they are gorgeous cars... I may have to go back to the...
