Is this an engine thing or can they fiddle with the electronics and make all 1.6s have the lower emissions?

Current TDI A1's will be £20 RFL and have to pay the congestion charge. They can not be adjusted and registered for the new lower emissions.

I think A1's ordered in the last two weeks will be the new 2012 model with £0 RFL no congestion charge and LED number plate bulbs.

As far as i can remember, the 2012 A1 is fitted with different tyres and has a modified map in the ECU to get the 99co2.

MPG should improve slightly if you get a re-map too!

There are alot of people going for the tuning boxes... Although imo, i myself would prefer to go for a rolling road remap.

There are quite a few companies out there, Jabbasport are well regarded VAG tuners... Who are actually only 5 miles away from me. My Audi A2 TDI was RR remapped by Stealth racing, who done a great job at a good price.

Revo are also well regarded.

Thanks for the info Mojito - can I ask though, what difference did or would it make to the insurance or have you not personally had a remap on any of your cars?

Thanks

Can't the Audi dealer re-map the ECU or a MY2011 to match that of the MY2012? I realise this wouldn't alter road tax or congestion charge but would get the advantage of the extra 4mpg combined. May be worth it??
