    Well being an active member of the VW Club of South Africa, Ive often envied the guys who use REVO etc to tune their cars. We dont need piggy-back chips, or to rechip for any technical reasons, its just that there arent any (that Im aware of) plug n play systems out there to retune the Clio ECU

    Looking for Mk1 172

    Whoever said that mk1 172s dont kick obviously drove a bum model. Mine kicks twice, once at 4000rpm and again at 5500rpm, and mine only makes 126hp (92kw) ATW due to the altitude Im at.
