    I wont be re-fitting mine (DTUK GREEN ECO) once I get my car back from the garage.

    First time I fitted it the car broke down going to London on Xmas Eve just over a year ago, turned out it was the No3 cylinder fault.

    Left it off for about 9 months, no problem at all, but I missed the extra power so stuck it back on last October

    Now the fuel pump has packed in.

    Coincidence? Maybe, but I not taking the chance again.

    I can live with standard 150ps but not huge bills for repairs.

    The choice is yours

    Remaps pose the same risks to the engine that boxes do.

    You must be uber unlucky Alan

    Not too unlucky.......only 2 faults in 6 years, but both major faults.

    I seem to have missed out on the niggly faults, better not say too much
