4.2TDi tuning
 
Anybody had theirs chipped?

:)

Yup :)

Brotek down Peebles way is a Shark Reseller and would let you know how do-able it is.. Not sure on the D4 engine if the ECUs have changed.

Worthwhile difference?

:)

Mine was done as the DPF had failed and was being removed, so not much extra to pay for the performance map as opposed to DPF-free map. It's certainly faster, though a couple of MPG down on longer runs.

Had my D3 done with the dpf also, map was done on a rolling road and its now running with 390bhp and 800nm. Best I've seen on a run is 39 mpg at a steady 70 from London to Durham. Very fast+++

Where did you get yours done, local?

From Durham, I'd give Mark @ BroTek a shout, he's just over the border and also does visits . Or pop over to Shark, but that's a bit more of a journey.

That doesn't seem right, that's over 20% increase from a remap.

Where was this from, price, photos/graphs?

Cheers PsYcHe, I'll look into it. I fancy a remap on the A4 to smooth out the delivery, not really bothered about performance, maybe improve the MPG a bit if possible?

Shark do a variable tune thingummabob for a little bit more, has a performance tune, economy tune, normal tune, and immobiliser mode.

I was told I should have similar figures on mine, the standard should be 380-ish up from 326, but the DPF removal gives is some more (or so they said).
