    I wonder if they mean the Euro 4 CDTI 150's? As only Vectra '05 onwards is available. Certainly impressive figures.

    when i had my fabia vrs done by them they did over estimate the figures by a bit so take them with a pinch of salt they were a good company but i would shop around coz after i had it done by them i found i could of gone somewhere else for cheaper and the other company would of set it up on a rolling road not just how celtic tuning did

    Sounds a tad aggressive and almost certainly optomistic IMO.

    IMO I wouldnt touch them with a barge pole. I dont know anyone who has made the figures they claim (on various cars). They also have a habit of going for max power with out consideration for other factors.

    They are big with tuning civics, but never warn customers that the clutches cant take the powers they map to. They also use generic maps.

    Obviously this is all my opinion, but I would stay away and go for a custom map.

    very optimistic, the best tuners are usually conservative with their figure quotes

    sounds high to me never heard of a remapped 1.9 cdti getting over around 200bhp unless its stage 2

    also if they are just using generic maps in my eyes your no better off than buying a tuning box

    not getting a remap myself, just seems very high output. But - it's a bold statement to back it up with money back guarantee.
    Presumably if the output figures are proven to be fake you can go and get a refund. Might be difficult to prove them wrong is the only problem.

    They will have a time limit on the money back guarantee (normally 7 or 14 days) Not many people will have time or another £45+ to sort a rolling road session in this time.
