    not used them personaly but have heard some stories about the 3.0 cdti being a bit dodgy to fit a tuning box as they dont like them, only one i do know of that has never had a fault is ian_c's as that is an irmscher tuning box that cost about 800 euros fitted

    there's plenty of euro 3 v6cdti's (preface) making good with tuning boxes...
    not so many euro 4 (facelift) as some have been known to throw a wobbler...

    you pays your money & takes your chance

    I knew u should have brought the 1.9 cdti.

    What about re-maps? Anyone gone down that route?

    An what do you mean thrown a wobbler? I've got the face lift euro 4 model.

    Give them a ring mate, they are very helpful and will answer any questions that you have. If you do ring ask for graeme, he sure knows his stuff! Hope this helps mate

    Hi Lee
    Was looking into these tdi tuning boxes, you say there is a massive difference
    is that in power?? Hows the fuel do you get any better MPG it does say 4-6mpg better.

    Tuning boxes have a habit of causing EML's on overtaking as well as knackering fuel pumps

    Yes they make a massive difference, the extra torque is really noticeable and my MPG has gone up 3-4 mpg. It also makes the car really smooth and gives a crisp throttle response, the midrange torque is unreal.
    The TDI-Tuning boxes arnt just all about power, its the whole package, just a good all rounder, it transforms the drive.
    I did plenty of research about tuning boxes and the bore wash and knacking fuel pumps theories just arnt true.
    My car whent for its mot last week with the box on and he said the emissions where perfect and did find it hard to get a reading.
    TDI-Tuning test the boxes on cars and have them fitted for 60,000miles plus.
    I also have a friend who fits the boxes to his fleet of vans and hasnt had one issue with the boxes, some have been fitted for over 100,000 miles and under daily abuse.
    Hope this helps
