    Default letter from my dealer about tuning chips

    I received a letter to today from the dealer where i bought my car asking if i would like to make huge savings on fuel costs by having a tuning chip fitted to my car. Estimated savings will be around £250 pounds per year and engine torque and performance will be increased by around 25%, comes with 2 year unlimited mileage guarantee and a 14 day no quibble money back guarantee. No price included in the letter, just told to phone the service desk to book it in. Anyone else had one of these letters.

    Vehicle : Signum

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 3.2 V6

    It will be the "Irmscher" version of the Powerclik box. At around £700 it's only benefit over any other is that it does not invalidate the warranty
