I got a BiTDI ('2018) model but still in warranty (5 years from factory) and I hesitate to remap it for voiding reasons.

The 3 year warranty on our 2018 BiTDi R-Line recently ended, so I had it remapped by Revo (Stage 1).

As has beed previously mentioned it does make the Car quicker, but by far the biggest benefit is the linear throttle response.

I was previously quite frustrated by the how the car would hesitate pulling away and sometimes at roundabouts, and was not sure if this was an ECU or TCU issue.

The Car is now a real joy to drive and the hesitation has completely gone.

I think its worth considering remapping the Car just to eliminate the hesitation, though the additional performance is really nice to have.

PS I did have to pay as additional £12.41 for insurance.

If you’re not too interested in the extra performance, then the throttle response can be changed to ’direct’ using Carista or OBD11 which pretty much eliminates any hesitation pulling away. A lot of people have done this and are very happy with the difference.
You could also try a ‘pedal box’ which, although a bit more expensive, also has the desired effect.

So far it looks like it will be similar or slightly better than before.

I will report back when I know more.

Looking forward to our 230 going out of warranty in 18 months as they remap to near Tiguan R levels :) Being an SEL will be a bit of a sleeper!

I don’t think you will be disappointed, I could not wait for the warranty to end on our BiTDi R-Line so that I could get it remapped.

The car is now significantly better to drive, not only is the throttle more linear the car now responds to very small amounts of throttle, which it did not before.

This in turn makes it so much easier to drive slowly as well as at other speeds.
