Re: wow

nope its £300

the improvement in the car is great but the service is only OK for the money. FOr my liking there would have been more explanation of what was going on. To be fair they offered me a money back type situation if i wasnt happy, they also offered to remap it again if i wanted more power, just so long as i came back to them quickly. so all in all im happy, although i would have liked to have been able to spend more time with someone tweeking the car. I was impatient and wanted something done on the spot so i got treated as such i think.

HOnestly though, the car now feels so much better, no dead spots in the rev range, just pulls right to the red line......used to die at about 3k revs.

love, love is a verb, love is a doing word.

Re: wow

at least monza are a well known local player who you can always go back to if you have any future issues. i've never heard a bad thing about monza, i'd trust them.

Re: wow

i have heard bad things about them a while back, but to be honest that does not tie up with my personal experience. they have always been friendly when i have visited them. Keith there is always polite and willing to discuss things and i have always managed to get most things done at a reasonable price. as you say, its somewhere bricks n mortar that you can go back to. that in itself is worth a great deal i think.
