Anyway to tell if my car is remapped?

Hi all.

I have recently bought a 2006 Red A3 2.0Tfsi special edition,

Seems to be a cracker so far, well looked after, seems to have had a couple of nice modifications too.

Someone has gone to the expense of fitting and EVOMS V-flow intake kit, And I just wondered if it had maybe been remapped, as a Civic Type R won't even look at it.

My father has VCDS and I was curious if there was a way to tell on this if it has had a remap before, as it's certainly something I will be looking at doing once I have a de-cat sorted out and some decent suspension.

Thanks in advance.

Rolling road, £50 maybe less for a run if you know them.

That was my first thought, but living un thebScottish Highlands these places are not very close by, looking at least a 200mile round trip.

I already run a garage haha.

If I could get away with it I'd have done it by now. Wonder how much these things cost...

Id say you wouldn't get much change from 20k for a 2nd hand one.
