Given its long involvement with the marque, it’s no surprise that VW Driver magazine has frequently tested Superchips’ cars over the years. Always an interesting read, VW Driver conducts in-depth acceleration and fuel economy tests the like of which are rarely seen elsewhere amongst the motoring media these days.
Which makes it doubly pleasing that VW Driver’s test on the Superchips modified Mk6 1.6 Golf TDi is noted for its glowing praise. Tested back to back with the standard car, the Superchips modified version lopped an impressive 2 seconds from the 0-60mph time, greatly improved in-gear acceleration and returned a genuine 56mpg during the test.
And there’s never been a better time to buy a Superchips ECU remap, because at the moment this enhancement for the 1.6 TDi VW Golf is available at a special sale price of just £365.00 including VAT and installation.

Superchips Golf 1.6 TDI road test
Superchips Ltd, the world leader in high performance vehicle ECU remapping, has been enhancing Volkswagen turbodiesel powerplants since 1994. During this time the Buckingham based firm has developed an impressive portfolio of performance ECU upgrades, but its latest release, for the March 2009 onwards Mk6 Volkswagen Golf 1.6 TDi 105 PS (103 bhp), could arguably be the best yet.
Owners of 245 PS (242 bhp) 3.0-litre TDI Audi A4 / A5 / A6 / A7 models can now benefit from the increased performance, economy and response of a Superchips ECU remap.
Careful development by Superchips’ technicians on these models’ Bosch EDC17 ECU in conjunction with extensive dyno testing and on-road assessment has resulted in a remap that delivers a stunning 49 bhp gain at just 3762 rpm, with power gains starting from just 1700 rpm and continuing all the way to 4500 rpm cut out.
Post Superchips remap, the 245 PS 3.0-litre TDi Audi A4 / A5 / A6 / A7 torque output increases by 94 Nm at 2950 rpm – peak output hit a mighty 600 Nm on the firm’s in-house dyno. Highlighting the flexibility of the Superchips conversion, over 550 Nm of torque is available between 2100 rpm and 3800 rpm.
On the road, this translates into a drive from these 3.0-litre TDi Audi models that’s sharper, more responsive and more urgent. Overtaking becomes easier, acceleration is noticeably improved and less gearchanges are required thanks to the extra flexibility afforded by the Superchips upgrade.
And this added performance doesn’t come at the expense of fuel economy 245 PS 3.0-litre TDI Audi A4 / A5 / A6 / A7 models. Independent testing has proven that the Superchips ECU remap improves consumption by up to 7% if the cars are driven in a ‘like for like’ manner.
Priced at £455.00 inclusive of VAT and installation, the Superchips ECU remap for the 245 PS (242 bhp) 3.0-litre TDI Audi A4 / A5 / A6 / A7 models is available now, click on www.superchips.co.uk to purchase now.
