Superchips in Buckingham.
Yes their bluefin system is good. Can revert back to factory yourself very easily. It is an actual remap not a plug in box.
Have a reputation for being coservative & reliable.

DSG remaps are expensive as aparently the box has to come out to get to its brain.

I ran a Superchips map from new on a previous VW. 65k without a hitch.

Does the T5 respond well to chipping? Anyone tried? The claims of this manufacturer suggest better economy (15%), better performance (180bhp to 227bhp), a smoother drive and no negative impact on emissions. Removable and doesn't impact emissions according to blurb.

I'm out of warranty, what is the downside other than cost?

Hi, I have a T5, 140, DSG, Blue motion. I used a chip from Racechip, a German, TüV approved Company. It is removable so invisible when having a service etc. I can't praise it enough. I had the cheapest model. The performance improved but the most impressive benefit is the improved fuel consumption. I reckon it paid for itself within 5 months . Definitely worth the ride in my opinion. I fitted one to my previous vehicle (a Ford S-Max) which convinced me of the benefits.
