As is the case for VAG cars, a stage 1 tune really unlocks the performance potential of the engine and gives you the extra 'shove in the back' you would expect from a performance car. I have read online that the gearing of the B9 S5 means that you really feel the torque of the engine in third gear onwards. I can confirm that this is the case with the 034 stage 1 93 octane tune, and the torque in third gear is like a relentless wave! Installation was easy and straightforward. The only negative is that you feel tempted to access the extra power/torque more often, so fuel economy plummets very very quickly. There doesn't seem to be any negative impact on fuel economy when driving normally though. All in all, a very worthwhile upgrade and highly recommended! If you are on the fence, do it! As an added bonus, vagparts provided great customer service :)
Fast shipping great service fast communication can not be happier and wow did it make a difference
Great service, part now fitted, no issues!
For a part so cheap and easy to change, it makes sense to change these as often as you change your oil if you're running a modified engine and every 10K if you're running an older standard engine...just to have a look at the cam, give the fuel pump a clean and replace the follower. The INA is as good as the OEM and well priced.
A cheap, simple to install modification and easily noticeable, immediate difference. Literally takes 5 minutes to install.
A nice little introduction to the 034 range, start with this and go from there.

Fast delivery , great prices .A+ received all parts .
As always 034 parts do as they say. A great little upgrade to address the big issue of MQB subframes moving around. The whole front end of the car feels better. Braking feels much improved. You brake more efficiently as the tyres have more direct contact as the subframe does not move around.

Good Product and great price
Just want to say thank you so much for the customer service and delivery on time. Amazing oem+ part.
Just got a bit confused because I could not pay using zip pay however, nothing related about the quality of the component.
