    never heard of them, have you had it RR'd?

    How much did it cost? Did they come to your house to install?

    Glad your vectra has a new lease of life.

    Hi mate,

    Not had it rolling roaded but don't really need to, once I got back in after the remap it was just wow lol!!! You could just tell how more responsive it was and when you put your foot down it just goes like stink!!

    Can't recommend them enough, cost wise it was about £300 if I remember, but honestly this is worth every penny, and the guy will do the work before you pay so you can test it.

    Anyone whos got a diesel this is a must do mod - when they did the Alpha it just converted it into a flying machine, I had 12 months of great fun after that before I sold it. Sure it was £300 for the Alpha as well.

    I like the idea of a rolling road so i can see exactly what the car is putting out before and after.... Im glad your car feels better tho

    Im going to get mine done after christmas but i think PD Tuning sounds the right one for me, well at the minute anyway

    Cheers for the recomendation tho, ill look into it

    Hi guys,

    Pulled out the service for the car, the re-map was £199. Worth every penny IMO.

    Says at the bottom its a special offer until Jan 2010, so might be worth ringing and asking if your interested. Highly recommended!

    not impressed with the performance or torque increase for my V6 CDTI 184 only takes it to 215, bloke in bristol south west in car tech quoted £300 for the raise to 225 BHP and 380 lb - ft of torque and its closer to me. but then i think the 150 can be mapped to 206 BHP thats 56 BHP why cant mine go up 56 BHP and another thing how much can the stock internals take?

    Gearbox is rated at 295 lb-ft, and that's the strong bit!

    As for: "how much can the stock internals take?": Anyones guess.
