    Hi everyone
    Noob here, so I've recently bought an A3 8P 2009 as my first car it has a 1.6L 4 cylinder petrol producing 102BHP , engine code AVU. My question is would it be worth putting money into the car for performance gains or am i just too limited by the hardware due to no turbo for anything significant? Other than a stage 1 tune how could I extract more power out of the car or would it be better to wait until my insurance goes down so i can afford a better setup to start modding?

    I would be surprised if you would get very much extra power from the car with a tune. Better off just servicing it and making sure it's running as well as it can. Save your money in a bank account for the next car .

    Maximum you can get from.tweaking fueling is probably 5-10bhp as my civic type r ep3 was mapped by previous owner from 200 to 215 ( piontless)
