    Default 888 re-map

    Hi, is the 888 re-map for the 1.9 cdti 150 worth the £550 BIG ONES ? i read it may not void your VX warranty, but how well does it perform over the standard 150 and do you loose any MPG's, mine averages at about 44mpg. i'm very tempted but would like some sound advice first before shelling out ! ! cheers Kcs

    I'm over the moon with my 120 888-remap! Can't say any more than that.

    And the test drive I got after the job was done was worth £400 easy! Just keep ya eyes shut

    I had the first map on my Vectra and it was bloomin awesome. I was over the moon with it

    Now have a modified map on my Astra and it is even better

    I understand since I had my Vectra done there is a newer better Vectra map too that Stevie Spoons has fitted

    I also had the 888 remap done on my 150 the other day. For the money it is well worth it, I got a software upgrade, identified a few faults which VX have never mentioned and of course the remap.

    Oh and to quote Brocks from a previous thread, a brown trouser test drive once it is installed. Man does he know those country roads well !!!!!

    Having had a tuning box on the week before, I can thoroughly recommend the remap, the box felt like the power came in seat pinning big bursts, whereas the remap feels like increased power throughout the whole rev range.

    I was driving home up the M40 in 6th gear doing 70-ish. Foot down on the gas and it did not take long before I realised I was doing nearly a ton

    I love it
