I originally had my car mapped at AHM and for 700 I got a custom map and a DPF bypass. In hindsight, and based on current legislation, the DPF bypass is no longer installed, and the custom map I thought I had was not as custom as I had hoped.
I mean no disrespect to AHM or others involved in the development of the F1 map but the map on my car, I believed to be custom and based on the legendary F1 map (for which I paid a premium) was not that custom!
Subsequent mapping work with Autolusso had us decode the map that was on the car from AHM and see that it was actually a generic percentage lift of stock maps. It had no custom ratios or other tweaks that we could see and was no different to any other map by any other tuner.
What I preferred about my experience with Autolusso was that we sat down, evaluated the map in the software, discussed increases and what could be safely done by eye vs on a rolling road and then once we made changes and uploaded the new map to the car, I test drove it and could feel differences and report back for more changes. 2 separate iterations of this process resulted in a change I could immediately feel and was happy with.
In my mind this was much more of a custom mapping service than I had with AHM, where I left the car, came back several hours later and drove home.
I was very happy with the service I received from AHM and have no issues with what I paid for, what I received or the service. AHM are good at what they do. All I am saying is that in hindsight, knowing what I do now, I would not have gone with AHM and paid a dam sight less than 700 quid!!!!
PS, if anyone wants a cheap DPF bypass pipe, I have one
I will add for clarity that my car is the 2.4 auto, and perhaps that is why my map was not based on the F1 map, but if that is the reason, it was not clear to me when I parted with 700 quid or I would have got a cheaper option.
