    What are peopleís thoughts and opinions on tuning boxes? In particular DTUK and TDI Tuning?
    My car is still under the manufacturers warranty, so having something that can be removed without trace would be preferable at this moment in time.

    Not possible since 2014 with more indepth diagnostics ODIS .

    Flags TB1 code that invalidates the warranty .

    Like an old garage sage said to me one time ‘if you want more power, get a bigger engine’. Unless you’ve got an RS6 the world’s your oyster. Out of interest, why did you buy the one you have if you wanted more go?

    Iíve used tuning boxes on several cars.
    2.5tdi 180bhp for 9yrs, 3.0tdi 240ps for 8yrs amongst others. Never had any issues related to them.
    Current 3.0tdi 272ps has a more up to date box on from Bluespark Automotive, itís good.
    I have cars out of warranty though. I donít think the dealers would go looking for signs of a box fitted for most claims under warranty.
    Go for a reputable firm that do not claim the most power or torque.
    Iíve dealt with dtuk many years ago and went elsewhere. My recent choice was tdi tuning or Bluespark, went with the latter as they are close to me. Excellent customer service, advice so far.

    Im sure everyone would like a little more Ďgoí from time to time.
    This car was at a brilliant price and came with all of the spec I wanted.
    If we all bought the car we Ďwantedí weíd all have RS6ís...

    Thank you for your response, but after considering everything, I think Iíll wait till the warranty expires and get it remapped.

    Thank you all for your thoughts/opinions.

    Good decision, we've had a lot of unnecessary drama before when someone (against the advice of most people) remapped his car, only for him to get an email from Audi threatening to revoke the warranty on the power train.
