Just wanted to give some feedback of my recent dpf 'operation' at Motormech, Bham. Let me stress, its ALL positive. Decided to get the DPF removed/EGR delete and Remap as getting jelous of everyone else banging on about it!
Emailed just after Christmas, and was able to book in within a matter of days. Dropped car off first thing on the morning and had a quick chat with Paul about the procedure who recommended the 'knocking out' the filter so it looks intact in case MOT regs change etc. Also chatted about the type of Remap I wanted, I stressed I was looking for something 'in the middle', not crazy performance. Got a call from Motormech at 12.30 to say that by 1pm she would be ready for collection. Wasn't a long drive home, but wow did I notice the difference.
Stronger acceleration, power from the moment you put your foot down, smoother and definitely a kick in the back when you need it! Took it for a tootle to London too, 240 mile round trip, and managed just short of 49mpg on the trip computer. Usually i'll get 250 miles or less per £40 fuel up, I managed 350 miles. Not bad going. Was going fairly steady, with a few moments of fun with the gas pedal.
It HAS transformed the car. Loving the car again! Thankyou Motormech
Before having the procedure, I had read a variety of reviews and comments from users on here both positive and negative. I can say that I am thoroughly pleased with the service I received and a brilliant price. I would definatley recommend them if you are wanting this procedure for Alfa!
