After lot of research work, I installed Racechip and its worth every penny I spent. In kickdown mode the rush is mindblowing.

Good to hear. If you can provide more details of how you sourced it, experience of sales & installation, it would help others.

I'm glad you accepted our advice, and avoided getting your ECU modded by a small, inethical outfit like Kiirus (they've been banned for marketing on our forums). Customising an ECU map isn't childs play, and it's important to keep long-term reliability in mind. I've driven a Linea modified by Kiirus and honestly, I find their tall claims of "power improvement" as rubbish. The cars felt identical to stock.

I bought it directly along with K & N filter.
Spent approx 17k along with duty.
After installation, done 8000 km and result is very good as expected.
Power setting is at 60% and is capable to give give good run for money to other big machines including Q5 (2tdi)
Mid range power surge is enough to not to put in manual mode.
Had friendly race with friend in Q5 and could overtook it many times easily.
140 -180 band is now quite smooth (though I don't drive at such speed)

only problem I faced was of Box installation.
Its very tough to find CRDI connector and plug it, so I took the car to the dealer and they did the fitting and also done OBD.

How is the box doing?
You mentioned in your other thread that you removed it?
