    Red face The Agony of waiting!! (VXR remap)

    Took the beast in on Friday to get her remapped (rather than my CR2 Diagnostix box). They had to get the map rewriten for my car cos she's 'special'. Not in a good way either.

    Anyway, the map came and they stuck in in and she threw a fit. Not good, she just imobilized her self and refused to start.

    Must stress that it wasn't the VXR centres fault, my car has some real identity issues (Mental problems more like). So they tried to get her going again but by 1730 everyone had had enough.

    So they stuck me in a company car (SRI Vec C 1.9 150ps) and sent me on my way. They don't work weekends so they said they will sort it next week and then either deliver it to me or I could go back and get it.

    So I'm a little dissapointed but I get to drive around in a brand new 55 reg for a few days so can't complain... Except that it's a little wet on power without any form of tuning but then I'll just notice all that power even more when I get me beast back!

    Now that's what you call customer service.

    Vehicle : Vauxhall

    Trim : very

    Engine : Z19DTH

    Year : Nosey

    Default I didn't do anything...

    honest

    No but really, it's due to some issues that appear to be from the programing in the factory, so I can't even blam the Vx garage... too much.

    As for the SRI, it's unfortunatly completely standard.

    They say they have previously remaped both Astras and Vectras so I'm sure they will sort it in the end.

    Should I stick an 888 badge on it when it's done though?

    Vehicle : Vauxhall

    Trim : very

    Engine : Z19DTH

    Year : Nosey

    Unhappy

    Still waiting

    They are going to changing the offending part tommorrow hopefully so all going well it could be ready shortly after.

    This SRI has a serious lack of toys though and the fuel ecconomy is not as good as my tuned up beast. Had to change the back tyre too cause I got the biggest nail in the world stuck in it some how!?!?!

    The worst thing about this whole saga is that my car washing gear is in my boot so I can't even give the SRI a wash and wax!!!
