Price paid: £360

Problems: EGR was not deleted from ECU. car started juddering like it did when my EGR was clogged. Checked on FES and EGR status was active and 43% open at time of checking.
Phoned MotorMech, told of my problem, advised to try a blanking plate. This resulted in EML coming on. Several phone calls later and a trip to a different company who use Top Gear tuning and EGR fault gone.
Hollowed DPF made awful sound so got a DPF bypass pipe made up by my brother in work (Should have done 1st so could keep working DPF) and fitted.
On cold starts she sounds bl**dy awful, but is fine once warmed up! Only since remap...
Now have a noticeable step in power at 1900rpm, but overall she runs smoother...
Overall experience: friendly service. Great excuse to get car done for the wife is it was right next to the bull ring. 2 mins walk!
