Revo over the years seems to be the most popular  one of choice by owners on here.
Mk1 GTI, Mk 6 GTI & 5 non VW.

going for Revo tune based on value for money. only 280 so worth a punt

If it is the twin charger engine? then I would opt for a milder tune.
Carbon Grey, 2010 a few VCDS mods. White 2016 Polo GTI (roller skate on steroids!!)
