Luxury brands like Porsche, Lamborghini or Bentley complete the range. But what does this have to do with VAG tuning? It’s very simple: this generic term includes all tuning operations involving Volkswagen group cars and which are therefore specifically adapted to their basic technology.

Tuning: do it yourself or hire a professional?

VAG tuning is currently very trendy – even outside the tuning scene, many enthusiasts tune their VAG cars. However, a fundamental question arises: is it better to tune your vehicle yourself or to call on a professional? It depends on your knowledge and your tuning plans:

VAG car tuning yourself:

There are many starting points for tuning an Audi or Volkswagen yourself. So even without experience you can make changes to the body, for example with VAG tuning stickers, foils, a new exhaust or a new spoiler. Also for the interior, in the VAG tuning shops you will find numerous accessories such as cockpit lights, sill strips, linings for the center console or textile trim, in order to carry out an aesthetic transformation.

Call a VAG tuning professional:

There are many companies that are exclusively engaged in tuning VAG cars. Among them are companies with a long tradition such as Oettinger Tuning or Bartek Tuning, which have been renowned for decades. They are preferred if you are planning complex modifications that require in-depth knowledge. You should entrust the tuning of your engine to professionals if you do not have experience in the matter. With the “Carly” tuning app for VAG you can even do remote coding. To do this, all you need is the app and an adapter.

Chiptuning is almost a must for tuning fans. It is a question of modifying the parameters of the engine management in a targeted manner in order to boost the engine power. It is also possible to change the chip. You can then choose between several power levels via a special device.

Would you like to do the tuning of your Volkswagen yourself? Then you need the best quality spare parts. Typical starting points are the engine, gearbox, exhaust system and on-board electronics. In addition, you need to get some tools and some measuring devices (for example to measure the air pressure).
