    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.

    Hello there.
    I am from the Netherlands and brought my Seat Ibiza 1.8 TSI to TVS Engineering.
    I chose stage 1 ECU and stage 1 DSG software.
    Car is much smoother shifting, no more problems like the wrong gear when entering a curve or a roundabout, no more delay and lag, no more under revving, Sports mode has been optimized to my wishes and no more vibrations when accelerating.
    Just like it has to be from factory.
    I think there is a personal flasher so you can do it yourself.. should check their facebook or website
