    Right I think I'm going to bite the bullet and get my 318d remapped, despite my reservations with regard to opening of the ecu to tune the car.

    Has anyone on here done this yet? Feedback?

    I'm just getting so frustrated with the performance.

    I work at a VAG tuner and we have been doing the EDC17 ECU's for a while now, can't see why you would have any problems!

    As long as you use a well known tuner then you should be OK

    You should be dealing with the kind of people that are confident enough to do it!

    It'll be getting more common too in the future as tricores get more popular.

    Just watching the video on youtube of them opening the ecu using a hot air gun, then having to solder wires onto the ecu! Nice!

    You don't need to solder a wire on, you can just use a boot pin or probe to make contact with one point on the PCB.
