    Default Anyone used these ???

    Any comments welcome.

    I got these 2 replys from them when I asked them what the units are like.

    1) Our Entry level unit, The Classic is aimed at those wanting a unit that provides great performance but with no frills. The price of this unit reflects just that but is worth much more. Our web site sells the Classic for £239.00. If you are looking for a multi-profile unit, our Premier offers 4 profiles in the single unit. These are customer selectable and without having to remove any covers etc. It also has an intelligent cold start timer function and an on/off switch. Both these are also customer switchable easily. The CRD2 is from Germany via Switzerland and is TUV approved. No products manufactured in the UK need to be TUV approved as it is a German approval. All products need to be CE marked if they are for export but some goods such as tuning units fall outside the specification and therefore don't require the marking. Our Premier is currently on special at £159 + 7.95 carriage (usual price £299 and multi-profile £359) and comes with a 30 day satisfaction guarantee. The CRD2 uses a seperate 12V supply, our advice would be to avoid it as they are known to cause some ECU failures which can cost the owner around £1000 to have fixed. It's your choice at the end of the day. You get what you pay for. Our designs are low power consumption and single plug type connection. If you'd like further details, please mail us again or visit our website, www.kingquick.co.uk We have designed and manufactured tuning modules for other companies for years. Best regards for the New Year, Jeff

    2) Something else for you to have a think about! Almost without exception, a vehicle will drive and perform at its best when it has the correct tuning profile applied. The idea of more than three profiles, ie. one for economy, and one for power (and maybe a third for a combination of the two) is a complete waste of time. It all sounds great on paper but the reality is that you will select the profile you like best, (i.e. the best power but with economy in mind) and then be unlikely to ever change this. As tuning specialists, it?s easy to see how customers can be fooled into thinking that more is more.. when in fact, more is not always more but just more costly.

    More food for thought for you anyway.

    They obviously dont know a lot, As they list my 2.2 as a CDTi with 90bhp.... When in fact its a DTi with 123bhp...

    I would steer clear myself, there are enough reputable Tuning Boxes out there to choose from, and also someone who openly criticise's other companies in the same field, is pretty unproessional..

    The 2.2 DTi has to use a hard wire method as well doesn't it.
    The bit that got me was they say a multi map unit is a waste of money but they sell one & it's their most expensive one as well ??? I thought a multi map unit would auto switch between maps depenping on how the car was driven to give maximum efficiency.

    Not too sure on that, but also the figures he claims to increase he 2.2 up too, are just the standard output figures..

    To be absolutely honest, I am gonna steer well clear of any tuning box/re map type things on my 2.2DTi. I am tempted, as i would like the performance to match the car's looks, but i have heard of more than a few problems when yo start to play with the ECU side of the Vectra's...
