Hi all,

I have a 40tdi Q5 I am thinking of getting a remap. 190bhp to 220bhp is quoted.
Has anyone had this done? did you notice a real difference? and any pros or cons of doing this?

I will soon be having my 2.0tdi remapped, hopefully by Celtic tuning who did my previous car, I can either have a economy map which will boost the figures from 174 bhp up to 206 and take the torque from 280 lb/ft up to 328 or the stage 1 map will take the BHP from 174 up to 228 and the torque from 280 up to 361. The maps are written by themselves rather than just a generic ecu file.

That's a small gain, that its probably not worth it, except for the torque. Plus you just put extra strain on the weakest part of your engine / transmission etc.

You think this is a small gain and not worth doing?, interesting, when I had my old Mercedes done it made a massive difference to the overall drive of the car. What sort of figures would you expect from a ecu map then? Alway interested to listen to opinions.

Go for it if you think its worth it. If this is an actual remap of the ECU I would recommend getting a proper tune done that is tailored to your specific vehicle, rather than a generic tune slapped on for your Q5/car model. Check out www.darksidedevelopments.co.uk etc No experience of CelticTuning so cant comment on them. Don't forget to update your insurance details ;)

I have had MTM remaps on my Audi's for the last 25 years. MTM work very closely with Audi which gives me extra confidence. Their web site is www.mtm-online.de and their UK installer is QS Tuning in Haywards Heath. I have never had any problems with their remaps and, as QS Tuning have a four wheel drive rolling road, it does as it says on the tin.
