    Default cheap as chips!

    Hi all,
    I saw this item on the Bay and wondered whether anyone has any knowledge of the product and whether it's worth getting.
    It seems ridiculously cheap for the claims that are being made. It surely can't work...can it?

    In short mate, it's too good to be true. These things fool the car into delivering too much fuel and can cause a bit of damage, avoid

    That's what I thought. There's no way that some company like Superchips would charge £300 for a chip if this worked.
    I think I'll steer well clear of this.
