    Default Gone down the bluefin route

    Hi all,

    I decided to remap my 1.9 cdti 150 with a bluefin. R-tec are doing them for a bargain £430 at the moment so I couldn't resist it. I flashed the car this evening (took about 15 minutes once I downloaded the map). Took the car for a quick spin and couldn't stop the wheels from spinning in first and second . Big difference in power but not crazy. I can also revert to the original map if I need to for any warranty work.

    The device can also me used to read error codes and immobilise the car as added bonuses.

    Give these guys a call, they will post it out to you too - http://www.rtecshop.com/
