Hello guys, i'm looking for a tuning chip for my A200 156HP, which one you recommend? I see that rechip is setting it pretty expensive compared to some others on ebay, though i am not sure if they damage my car, what you recommend?

Leave it as it is if you like to have a long term smooth operation. Just refer to what happened recently to a guy owning an A250 chipped and damaged.

it depends whether your looking for bhp gains or just want to improve it's general sluggishness . if it's the latter you may want to think about what I've done by fitting an aftermarket diverter valve which holds your boost in between gear changes instead of having to build the pressure back up each time , also a pedal box which in short increases the response time of the accelarator pedal allowing the throttle to open faster with less pedal movement just like quick action throttles fitted to lts of race bikes for faster take off. the whole package costs less than £300 and can be fitted yourself in under an hour..

Those cheap ones on ebay, that go for 100 euro or so, are not so good?

I recommend an ECU repro, its better for our cars, I tried mine and get more turbo boost and more performance, the car feels like have a new engine.
