Re-mapping

Post by PDriver40 » Mon Jun 25, 2018 6:15 pm

Question for everyone. Has anyone on got their Karoq remapped or even plan to ? .I have talked to a few people that got it done professionally and it increased power,lowered fuel consumption and emissions.

Given that the car is still under warranty I would tread carefully if I were you. I have absolute confidence that Skoda / VAG will deny any warranty claims if they discover that someone has been tinkering in the bowels of the ECU...

More generally; I have had a couple of cars remapped (two V70 T5s and a V70R) all three cars had improved fuel consumption (but required the use of higher grade fuel, which just about balanced out the costs) and all three cars were noticeably quicker through the midrange and kept pulling until I ran out of nerve or road. I have also heard horror stories from owners who went for a remap and chose their supplier based on price. If you must do it choose somebody who knows what they are doing and has a good reputation that they will not want to lose and don't forget about the warranty and insurance implications.

Have fun,

When you say VAG do you mean Volkswagen AG ?

Thanks

VAG = Volkswagen Audi Group (ie VW, Audi, Skoda and Seat)

Sorry. Note to self: Try not to use acronyms without defining them first.

Haha in that case you just mean the Volkswagen Group (no such entity as Volkswagen Audi group ) . Which is called Volkswagen AG , the AG is like "incorporated" in German.

:D

PDriver40,

Did you think any further about a remap? If you went ahead I'm sure there are folks here who would like to know how you go on, who you used, what were the results on a dyno, how does it feel on the road, what did your insurance company make of it... etc, etc, etc

Before deciding to buy the Karoq I looked at remapping my Greenline II Yeti. I could get it from 105bhp to 141, with near identical performance curves to the two litre 140 that Skoda offered as standard. However, there were almost no insurance companies prepared to offer cover and those that did wanted a couple of hundred pounds more than they would have to insure the standard TDI 140. The insurance and possible reduced reliability of DPF and EGR killed the option for me.

Have fun,

I have decided to continue as is for at least 6 months to get a better idea how the car is now. As regards insurance ,my brother in law purchased a nearly new seat car ,got it remapped by a company near Belfast and got excellent results. Improved mileage, more power and lower emissions.
