Decat is no no. Too troublesome and bad for environment.

i would recommend Eurosports. I have used him for 2 of my rides - both conti and never had problems. another popular choice will be Monster Tune, both are very experience in tuning VAG rides.
Ya.. the names normally recommended are Eurosports, Monster Tune and ETuners

Thanks. How custom is his stage 1? Is he willing to push beyond what he previously done up for other same models?

I thought his Mercedes tunes look a bit conservative but nonetheless I understand he is highly recommended in Mercedes community.

Your Golf's gearbox (DQ200) is rated for only 250nm. Dont exceed this limit when tuning or you can start replacing MU/clutch every couple years
