Just for info, Recieved a Squadra chip last week for my 145 Cloverleaf. It was fitted yesterday (thanks to much braver brother, mind you youre always braver when its not your car!) and the result is seems to be TOP!
Not a huge diffeance to notice at first, but it appears to of made the car so much more driveable now. The torque seems to give the real advantage as it now pulls really stong in high gears.
Basically roll on performance feels much stronger!
As for fitting, well its not the easiest job in world as the carpet had to come up and the seat out (if you want to make life easier that is), and my only suggestion to squadra would be to supply a chip removal device as getting the origianal out with the kitchen knife is not for the faint hearted!
Anyway all I can say is if youre thinking of getting one do it! Its well worth it! And no problems at all once fitted. The ECU light went straight out and she purred away on tick over instantly.
Not slow before hand, but you should of seen the Boy racer with all his mates in his Fiesta shod with the entire plastic content of Max Power on the way home when he tried to flash me out of the way whilst I was testing roll on power! Bye bye Mr Fiesta, go buy a proper car! (oh, and a chip).
The joys of Alfa Romeo ownernship... A question of when not if!
