    Chip or plug in module?

    Which is the best way to get the extra power and fuel consumption, the plug in module or to get a chip fitted? And which is the best/cheapest to buy and where from?

    Just took a look at their site and they seem a bit pricey plus there's 3 types for the TT without much explaination which one does what. They range from £340 to £270 whereas on ebay they range from £50 to £90 take a look here --> Astra tuning module has anyone used these if so are they any good?

    I have heard some bad things about some of the cheap boxes off eBay, EML coming on etc. Hundreds of people on here are running dtuk without any probs including myself. Personally I would rather pay that bit extra knowing dtuk are tried and tested by many. I got mine for £90 off here second hand.

    I got myself a DTUK Eco3 for my sri 150 on ebay for £113 and its worth every penny!! love how much quicker the car is and for the money you cant go wrong!

    i wouldn't touch any of these cheaper ones on ebay as you dont want to risk killing your engine but with the DTUK stuff theres 100s of us on here using them and iv not seen anyone that's using one complain about it
    Just because it smokes like a taxi doesnt mean it goes like one
