    Hi All,

    I searched as much as i could on this subject before posting this so be nice :)

    I'm looking to remap my 2013 A4 Quattro V6 3.0 TDI CDUC but would like it to be removable for when it goes in for servicing, i have a few questions:

    1) Does the dealer know that the car has had the map changed on the car? i mean, does the ECU log each map change?

    2) I am thinking about either AMD or ChippedUK, i had chipped UK on my previous car (A3 2.0 TDI 170bhp) and was fairly happy with it. Does anyone have any experience with the generic maps for this engine provided by either of these companies?

    3) Do either of these companies offer discount for forum members?
    I can see that ChippedUK have 15% sale until Christmas :)

    Thanks :)

    I believe any flash tool for ecu will potentially leave you open to the possibility of the dealers finding out that the car has had its software modified in some way, even when removed from the car prior to your visit to them. :blue:

    I believe what Auds2 said is correct.

    If you want a completely untraceable map then your only option is one of those "piggyback" tuning boxes that plug in, but as far as I know they are quite crude in the way they work and only adjust a few parameters so you are unlikely to see the same gains / drive ability as you would from a "proper" remap.

    I guess you're concerned about voiding any warranty that remains? If it helps I've had my 3.0TDI remapped for the last 35,000 miles and It's been absolutely faultless. :)

    The plug and play stuff has come a long way over the years. Companies like DTUK with @ABYSS who is a sponsor on here, tune these engines on a weekly, if not daily basis with great results by all accounts. Might be worth giving him a shout or indeed if he sees this im sure he will pop on and give you some good advice.
