    2017 A3 2.0 TFSI Quattro - remap options?

    Thanks, I have seen a few variants of these and remember tdi-tuning, from my mk4/5 days. Any reason why you went with this specific manufacturer? Its a big claim to make 50 odd BHP from a box, but then again I suspect the engine is hugely restricted in the first place. Any issues with...

    EGR switch over valve (solenoid) N345

    Hi After sorting all my DPF issues, one EML light that kept coming back was: "005270 - Switch-over Valve for EGR Cooler (N345) - P1496 - 006 - Short to Plus - MIL - ON" I took a chance and replaced the valve (identical to N75), having read by many that it could be the connector or wiring to...

    2.0 TDI 170 BMN - DPF issues (sighs)

    Agree, i just dont know where to start with the EGR, could it be electrical or need a clean? I will see if that code comes back again after clearing it but I do take what your saying whereby its got a part to play in the DPF being sooted up more frequently.

    2.0 TDI 170 BMN - DPF issues (sighs)

    Thanks for the response, thats worth a try at £55 - bearing in mind on the cars on 116k miles now and its most likely the original item in there. On another post you say its a fairly easy DIY? Thanks Akbar

    2.0 TDI 170 BMN - DPF issues (sighs)

    So we had this car for a over a year now, no real issues and anytime the DPF light used to come on I would take it for a drive then it would clear after 10 mins of motorway driving. Granted its used more for local driving and not long distant which is why this is happening and most likely why...

    2010/2011 LED Rear lamp for Sportback coding using Kufatec device.

    Yes thats correct, I was thinking it could be the harness also, but I was sure bit 9 in the coding exercise was to there to then make the brake lights switch off? - in any case, my VCDS long coding string does not change, which seems to be my issue. even after it says coding accepted the value...
