    Sorry to be a pain mate but i've noticed your from Luton, where did you buy your turbo from. It's just i know where there is a dodgy one for sale as i bought it and i am warning fellow members about it.
    PM me if you don't wanna put up here.

    about shocks and springs...

    I am going to stick my neck out here regards the remap...

    When i was looking to have mine done, i looked at loads of places in my local area. Rolling road - Remap - Rolling road seems to be the best way. You then know exactly what you are getting. However, that can be pricey outside of an organized event.

    I went to a place and spoke to the chap... Deal was he would do the remap, i could then test drive and if not happy, impressed etc he would restore the original and i could walk away at no cost... But, as soon as it was done and i had tested it.. I was happy to part with my money.. £200. The chap would also revert back to the saved map anytime i wanted to.

    I will never know the exact figures unless it goes on a RR, but the difference was superb!

    From my limited knowledge, find an established place to have it done. I found loads of "we come to your door and do it" but what is their history? Too much at stake for it to go wrong IMO.

    I am happy with the results i got and the way i went about doing it.

    Hope you enjoy your 2.0T...

    I went down to Purley, Croydon and bough it from a chap at Eagle motors ltd. He runs his car business off his driuve but has been established for years and has a massive house! llol! he seemed like a sound guy.
    Driving it back it was fine but when i got back to luton it started making some squeeky noises which im assumming have come fromn the breaks, its got new pads on old slightly warn discs. Hope this isnt the dodgy one! lol

    Would just be my luck after my horrendous signum experience!

    Aidi,

    i was thinking the exact same thing. Which is why i was thinking of going to somewhere reputable like bsr, but i now know their expensive. Would be cool to have a bsr badge on the car somewhere though! lol

    Has anyone had any experience with www.engenetics.com??? They same they'd do a remap for £325! Theres also www.superchips.com but again i presume they just use preset remap software and its not a custom remap?

    Im hoping for a rolling road remap as the preset remaps worry me as each car will be slightly different to start with. Just not sure what you get for the money you spend.

    Doesn't sound like the one for sale at lmc then. Hyperhart bought a red 53 plate 20T sri from there and had no end of problems with it and it's been put up for sale again, but glad it's not the one you bought then
