Re: RE: Re: Opinions - blow off valve

Yeah you're right man you reckon a remap is worth it on a 1.2tsi or just save the money and buy an audi in a couple of years? Depends how long your going to keep your polo for, if you think your going to be easily bored save the money up for a new car and keep your car standard [emoji3] Sent from m...
