Hi,
Yes, I installed a Race Chip Pro 2 on my Rocco R last week.
I found the instructions confusing, but I phoned their help line and they emailed me some photo's that where a lot clearer.
It has made a noticeable difference.

Hi Mike,

I ended up getting a RaceChip One, and I got the photos from support however I'm having trouble disconnecting the connector? it seems to have 2 connections on either side? and the one that does come off is far to small for the chip to plug into. I'm looking at the connector behind the grill under the air filter was yours easy to install?

Just curious. How will the race chip affect warranty? If the car's engine is going back to VW for some engine work can you simply unplug the race chip and off it goes merrily or will VW be able to detect that a race chip has been used before?

(Not 100% sure) but I know they can check if you used the launch control, turned off esp etc so I'm pretty sure they can also see that you used a modified chip
