I am looking for a remap !
I contacted Gus at AlfaTune St hellens, and the quote was £720 for remap, egr delete ,and Dpf removal.
My local tuner in north wales offers a remap for £300 (£250) for repeat customers. He has tuned in the past My Audi TT (Petrol) and My cdti Zafira 150.
Both gained power and both had better fuel econemy.
My older cars were always tuned (Very tuned) by Turbo Systems In Newcastle, I use to drive there and spend the day having the next upgrade done! bigger turbos, intercoolers, cam changed dialed in with vernier pullies, gas flowed cylinder head with oversized valves new brakes etc stainless exhaust. ........... list goes on ! "Tony Mannox" The boss was the "best" and you paid extra for that!! My RS turbo was 260 Bhp tested and proven Standard was 132Bhp claimed (118bhp Actual). Drivable reliable and fast real fast! the cost £6k But I spent £12k over 3 years on the car. then when I traded it in I got £4.5k.
Now I earn a third of the money I used to. have kids house bills.
I am looking to make my car more fun to drive and get better gas millage.
If I have local tuner do the work and remove the dpf myself Its £250. Alfatune, Gus is £720 a day off work £20 in fuel to get there and back.
The diference in cost £400 + buys a 4.5 tanks full of fuel.@ £90 a tank.
This time arround at 46 I know longer care if my car is the best one arround any more I just want a little more fun and better fuel econemy.
from what I have read on here the map from Alfatune is "generic map" anyway and not a "custom map" Correct me if i am wrong ?? that would mean sooner or later someone will get hold of it and copy it cheeply!
I am going for the cheaper option I think But From what I have read Alfatune are a great outfit and know their stuff and have many happy customers.
for me its just not an option I can afford.
Ps. If I could afford £720 I would want a custom map on the car for that money.
