Well Job Done
- i'm so pleased, like having a terminal illness removed.
Angel were superb as i expected...one of the best in the business without the need to tell everyone. Nige & Steve top blokes running a very professional operation.
Car already had a map on it and nearly made the 150 journey without a dpf on the way down but no after 110 miles, operation fuel jettison kicked in and car drove like a dog for 10miles whilst my fuel needle tumbled. The end result was a trip economy of 48.1mpg
Angel cleared all the crap from inside the DPF, put it back on the car and mapped it to delete the DPF / EGR process. Straight away i noticed the improvement over a previous map, power delivery, smoother and more sustained, exhaust not pleasantly better as well. Steve explained getting the DPF out of the way improved the turbo effeciency so gave a few more BHP over the previous map.
Journey home was a stinker with heavy traffic on the M1 and stuck crawling at 10-20mph for about 20mins around Notts, after that i ragged it to try and make up time....for a far worse drive home the economy delivered a very impressive 55.2mpg......that's nearly 15% better
For anyone thinking about getting it done - it really is a total no brainer and makes the car what it should have been all along...i was seriously thinking of ditching it as the DPF/EGR and poor economy were spoiling the whole experience.
Now i can hold onto the car with worries over DPF/EGR bills once the warranty is done (just a few months left)
We think we have it bad - Angel have a huge backlog of Audi owners booked to get their DPF mess removed (apparently it's even worse than ours ! )
As if we needed any further proof Angel are the genuine article they built and supplied all the Jensons featured on Top Gear in the last series - including the new Jenson Clarkson was raving about.....what a car it is as well !
