    HI All,

    Haven't posted in a while, but long story short - I decided to get a chip for the Leon.

    Was wondering what would you recommend, currently looking at ether RaceChip GTS or DTUK.

    Any comments, recommendations and general advice is welcome.

    Also looked at Revo - roughly the same price and ABT - can't seem to find prices.

    Should I also look to do a DSG flash, guess it would be good as it is the 7-speed (DQ200).

    Any comments and advice is welcome, car is still under warranty so don't want to overdo it :)

    I personally wouldn't remap a 1.8tsi with a DSG gearbox as the engine pits out the max torque that the DQ200 can handle, the issue is the dry clutches in it.

    This is the reason I haven't done that yet, I was looking around for options and now TVS Engineering claim they have a software flash for the DSG that should "solve" the problem. Not sure if it will work though. However here is what they claim.

    DTUK also have one available.
