The Car Lover’s Bucket List

Here at Racechip we’re always thinking about our next automotive adventure. All around the world petrol heads brag and debate with their rivals over which are the most exhilarating roads to drive and where the best experiences can be found.

Locations are key. From the glistening alpine peaks that shoulder Italy’s Stelvio Pass to the vast nothingness of America’s Bonneville Salt Flats, remarkable landscapes can make all the difference when it comes to enjoying the road.

A race day vibe can also create magnificent driving experiences for both spectators and contestants. The tight turns of Monaco’s hectic GP create a vibrant and exciting race regardless of who’s behind the wheel. The $500 spending limit of the 24 Hours of LeMons completely reshapes the nature of the race, making it about endurance as well as speed.

One should not forget the heritage, history, and culture of cars either. While Ferrari’s Museo Modena captures the innovation and creativity that spawned some of the most amazing cars on the planet, Tesla’s factory tour illustrates the exciting high tech, low emission future of the industry.

Below we’ve dreamed up our ultimate car lover’s bucket list. Take a look and get inspired:

Help differentiating CR/PD

Distinguishing between Common Rail (CR)
and Unit Injector (PD)

Applicable to certain Volkswagen AG model series with 2.0 TDI engines

Several Audi, Seat, Skoda and VW model series with 2.0 TDI engines use both CR and PD ("Pumpe-Düse" / Unit injector) technology. RaceChip chiptuning is specially customized to the applicable fuel injection technology with respect to both hardware and software. If your vehicle is specified in the list of applicable models below (all other 2.0 TDI models feature just one type of technology), it is important to determine, before choosing a tuning product, which type of injection technology is installed in your vehicle. For such models, you will therefore find the “CR” or “PD” designation after your engine code.

PerformanceThe following Volkswagen Group model series are applicable:Engine code CREngine code PD
100kW (136hp) Audi: A3 (8P), A6 (C6)
VW: Golf Plus, Jetta V, Passat B6
CAGB, CBAA, CFFA AZV, BMA, BNA, BRF
103kW (140hp) Audi: A3 (8P)
Seat: Altea (5P)
Skoda: Octavia (1Z), Superb (3T)
VW: Caddy (2K, 2C), Eos (1F), Golf V,
Golf VI, Jetta V, Passat B6, Touran (1T)
CBAB, CBDB, CFFB,
CFHC, CJAA, CLCB,
CLJA
BKD, BKP, BMM, BMP

If your vehicle is in this list and you are not sure if it is a CR or PD version, then simply follow one of the following steps to identify CR or PD technology.

Using the engine code:

For PD models, the engine code consists of 3 characters, while for CR there are 4 characters. You can find your vehicle’s engine code in the specification sheet in your service booklet or on the data sticker in your engine bay.
