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.

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

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).
