    Default Have to say.....

    ........that since I`ve had my ECU reprogrammed and updated,coupled with oil and filter plus engine flush ...what a turn around.
    The car is like a different car now.Put your foot down and it goes and some.
    Gone is the unresponsiveness,sluggishness and labouring CDTi and an animal has been unleashed.
    Cant imagine what a remap would do it.The pull and speed would be unreal I think.

    Hi Installer mate,

    Why the reprogram?

    Is it new software or was there a fault?

    Cheers,

    Ian

    Well had problems with car running poorly - not as it should or used to run.
    It would seem to labour - ie you know it should be fine in the gear its in but it don`t like it,sluggishness not very responsive put your foot down and wait an age to go anywhere - or thats how it felt,you`d run out of accelerator - even though you`d slowly put your foot down it`d be soon on the floor not going very fast,driving at 50ish and it hiccuped one way to put it - misfire to extreme,then ECU light came on with ( I think "throttle response") so off to dealers who couldn`t find anything,so did the above update.
    A week before it had oil and filter change/engine flush and it was better but then as I say ECU light came on.
