    Smile Mobile Re-maps In Merseyside

    One on my close friends drives a 3ltr d Auto X5 and had a chap come out and re-map the car.

    The thing now goes like **** off a shuttle.

    So I called the said chap and he has said its a complete re-map, not a file that blocks signals to fire more fuel in etc.

    It costs 299 for my 1.9CDTI 150 which he has told me it will give it 30-35bhp.

    The question is should I try it and see how I get on? and also has any one had a similar setup done to there car?

    Cheers,

    Mushy

    Or give Angel Tuning a call - they claim 205BHP from their remap. Nobody on here has one but they're quite well known and respected generally.

    I'd never get a remap done without the car being on a rolling road.. it's just too dangerous...and go to someone with premises.. not a mobile phone number......

    What he just said, if you are getting a true, proper, live remap it has to be done on a rolling road IMO.

    Does that make 888 and Regal's maps 'dead' then? Mine only went on the rollers because I paid for it!

    Depends, the key word being LIVE, the map Regal fitted to my car is generic, not live.
    I cant see either 888 or Regal popping round my house and offering LIVE mapping my car somehow.

    Agreed....but no-one ever mentioned live remaps.....the original post simply asked about someone to come and upload some software, which in essence is all that myself, spoons, GG etc have had done.

    I know big phil had a live remap done, and i guess nutron's map is almost live, due to the fact he's had it custom written based on how his car performs on the rollers.

    True, forgive me for jumping to conclusions, but from what I have read, seen and heard from across the forums etc the majority of these "mobile tuners" attempt so called live maps, in that they turn up, tweak a few variables, and are more often than not gone in about an hour. And if that is the case I would most certainly run as far and as quickly as possible.
    Personaly, the phrase "mobile mapping" strikes fear, lol.
