Morning All

Put a deposit down on a 130TDi yesterday and hope to collect early next week

Thought i should be sensible and grab a diesel as i am doing 500 mile round trip every week between Wiltshire and Leeds

First diesel and first VW in 25 years few or the cars i have owned VW polo (x2) Alfasud(x2 plus same one twice), alfasud sprint(x2), Alfa 155(x2) & 156(x2), Subaru Legacy GTB twin Turbo, Rover SD1, and currently running a Peugeot 206 GTi Grand Tourisme. Loads more i care to forget

Also had had ZX6, ZX9 and a ZZR1400 and volunteer for the local Bloodbike.

Are the Chips/remaps worth doing? is there a noticable difference in performance and economy?

Pictures to follow

Welcome to the forum mate [Y]

Bet you looking forward to picking it up then eh! Good list of cars there buddy [H]

Personally, I would keep it as 130 for few months that way you will feel the benefit of the remap more [:D]

Yeah, I find there is a noticable difference, when driving normal the MPG is higher but when changing gears slightly later than usual you will noticed the MTE goes lower. [:p]

Looking forward to seeing the pictures mate
