    smooth all the way
    easy to fit

    Well I'm going to have to say BSR.

    I have had the remap on the car for over 25K miles with no problems and with the PPC system I can take it back to standard in no time if it needs to go to the stealers.

    Their customer support is second to none as well.

    And I forgot to say, I've had both a box and a remap and the remap is the dogs

    thank you so far guys on this journey,so a remap instead of a box?but are there any remaps better than others,ive heard of people looking at rolling road figures,real road figures and such like but are they really relivant,does a few more bhp make any real difference,am i write in thinking that there are only a few manafacturers and that they then get called different names buy different dealers/agents?has any one got a dragon one,a local place to me is doing a special at the mo approx £250/£300,

    I didn't get my vectra remapped (company car) but my motorhome was done by Darrell Coutinho of Torquing BHP in Cambridge, not a million miles away from you. He does a special price for people on here - he is an approved trader - and several have had his remap done. Solid job. Certainly transformed the 'van and no problems at all.
