Who would you take it to, Doc?

I'm quite near Quantum (stevenage) and I believe they're decent?

It's not something I've ever considered or looked into so I can't really advise who would reverse it properly.

No worries.....I suppose it's a gamble anyway...

I just want to know what it's like without the 'fix'......I bought it already done, and I'm sure it would be better without it, mpg, torque etc...

I have had the Dieselgate update done last fall. Found it to be alright but not great. Here in Sweden VW issued a goodwill/guarantee that they would pay engine parts that broke within 2 years of the update.

Sunday last week while on the motorway an injector seized. I managed to get to the VW dealer. They diagnosed it on monday, ordered the parts and the car was ready for pickup on wednesday. The cost for this - free. It was covered by the goodwill.

I can also mention that one week after the update I went to Coro Tuning in Gothenburg, Sweden. They removed the funnel in the airintake that was a part of the update and flushed the ECU. Entered a normal 140 bhp remap into the system.

So this funnel can just be removed without any other issues?

I'm going to go and have a play in a bit
