Sorry, dont know how I didnt see this thread before.

I had my A4 remapped by VSport. Have they gone and a new company in, or is it simply a name change with the same people? I am aware that there are a few people who arent happy with their work on various local forums and allegations flying about, but speaking from personal experience I was happy with their work. Custom map written and loaded, told to try it and if I wanted it altering to let them know. They spent a while listening to what I wanted, and did a good job in achieving it (130 sport got 172.6bhp and 300lb/ft torque with a nice wide flat torque curve)

Cheers bud - good to hear some positive info about them. They did change their name & there's various stuff on the net saying they are the same people :?

I emailed them about a couple of things in December but they never replied so it's their loss :roll:

Will probably do RS Tuning when the job situation improves :(

I used PD tuning for a rolling road session to see what my car was running,i thought the guys there were very helpful and gave me some good advise,i have not used them for a remap so cannot comment on their maps.
There is a Company in Dragonville nr Durham called Turbo Pacs they do remaps but they are expensive.
A stage1 is at least £600 which seems about £200 more than most. http://www.turbopacs.com/

:shock: £600 :shock: Thats double what V sport charged me, and a lot more than CCtuning are asking for to do my Saab.

Very expensive!!!
We charge between £280-£300 depending on how far we travel, only latest bmw's/Audi's etc are more expensive....:)

i know the guy was really wooly when it came to answering my question will i get proof of gains after a remap,he had a rolling road on his premises,so its not like he couldn't.
He must do a fair bit of business though cos he is still trading,but £599 is mental for some cars he charges £799.
I was quoted £350 to remap my Colt by a guy down south who has done loads Smart ForFour CDI's but its same 1.5 engine and ecu as mine,he had seen gains of 40bhp & 50ft lb torque which is good from an engine that only had 94bhp & 155ft lb to start with however these cars had better airfilters and better backboxes.

On the colt we get 25bhp/45nm torque. would prob be worth doing a decat and back box to gain a bit more...:)
Just depends how far you want to go as there's always more you can do, bigger intercooler/hybrid turbo etc..

its just dead money going down the turbo/intercooler route though cos realistically i would be better off probably buying a car with more power and tuning potential to start with.

True mate,
Just depends on how much you like your car, especially when it's not one you see round every corner!! :)

true but i had the CZT colt before the Diesel Colt so i am always gonna feel down on power and thrills,but economy is king.
I think my car is ok but to be honest i need something bigger ie family size car not for kids,but for bike's dogs etc.
What cars from your experience are the most reliable and best to tune up :)

Thanks for that Guy - just had a look at their site.

Out of interest do you know if they write their own maps or use someone else to do that.

Hi nick,
I'm a bmw addict, I find them no more expensive to service and maintain than the focus i used to run, and a big bonus is rear wheel drive..:)
Far better than any front wheel drive car and they make some amazing engines.
But it all depends on what you like and what your budget is..:)
