    Sounds like Stage 2. A bit more than your usual map.

    you called?

    Right. The Regal map, despite what they advertise, only gives the same 185 BHP as every other mainstream remap. It's very smooth, turbo lag is much better and the power is superb, worth every penny IMO.

    If you have the remap with the sports button, what you actually get is the same remap....the sports button does exactly the same job, it sharpens up the throttle response. So with the sports button off, you only get a part of the available power because the ECU isn't allowing the throttle to accelerate as hard as it can. With sports mode on, you get the full remap, WITH the sharper throttle response and all the other bits that the sports button does.

    I'll bet it feels like a rocket!

    And despite what others have said, I've found their customer service to be superb.

    HTH

    Edit: Just noticed where you are....when I took mine back because the dealers ballsed it up, they offered me the option to use a place in Huddersfield instead. Might be worth contacting them to ask - would save you about 8 hours driving!

    Sports button off, you get about 5% more toque mid range,

    sport button on, its like having two cars ! even if its 185/190 it feels more like 200/210 , truley amazing

    Have a chat to Picador VX is Sholing, ask for Chris Power at the service desk, say I gave you his number , Just say Mark with his 19" snow flakes , he may do a few quid off even if they don't, they're doing them at £395 at the mo' but it runs until the end of December so be quick. and they will book it all in with Regal, pm me for his number if you want it,

    cheers markm

    I have my thoughts on Regal but I won't let them cloud the question here. Their software is EDS, which is the same as the VXR PC and I found this software to be very good.

    Stuarty, I assume you already have the sport button on your car? If not, I would be aware of aftermarket sports buttons being fitted, Regard did fit these to Zafira and Astra GSi's with mixed reliability results.

    As Parapaul has touched on, the ECU can't hold two maps and the 'off' mode is simply a restricted full map.

    I notice your in Aberdeenshire, is Regal not a very long way away? Why not try DAP in Rotherham? They use the same EDS software and are very very good!!!

    no, it won't do anything if you just put it in. you will find the sports button very pointless very quicky. just get a remap without.

    (this is nutron by the way, i've eaten spoons )
