yo man I have got the same car, I'm considering to install the APR ECU upgrade from 160 to around 210 HP. Any ideas? does it affect the engine or related parts?

APR is great for 1.4TSI..but my car got tuning box..which is not as good as any remap..but i really need the warranty..so why dont? hahaha... vw parts are ridiculously expensive here

I got the APR 210 remap, I'm very happy with their switching software and the ability to erase codes and TBA

The only thing I'm not 100% on is the DSG gearbox with the 98octane remap, just seems a little harsh for everyday driving as it makes the gearbox a little snatchy (but great for track driving)

But the 95 remap is very nice for everyday driving and the DSG seems quite happy with it,

All in all I would highly recommend the APR remap

yeah needs muffler to tame the sound so you can get a clear deep tone vs the rattle can sounds. and shorter exhaust tips. it sounds like a motorcycle

Good news, currently my car is in VW workshop it has been 2 months just to get the engine replaced and thank god it was within the warranty period.
After that ill install the software and the LED + suspensions.
Actually, in my country we have a lot of highways, so yeh it will be harsh in your case and from my experience the 1.4 tsi is a little bit annoying during rush hours
