If you want to get it mapped closer to home Andy, try Alfatune in St Helens?
Had the filter and exhaust fitted with a re-map and I'm pleased with the results

I've got a few mates in Essex that I'll be going to see soon, may as well plan the trip around the RR day

I'd also be interested in this...

Does going as a group mean discounts? if so, how much?

Thanks

Re: Next Red Dot Tuning Day?

It was £180 last time I believe, which is very cheap when you consider you get before and after rolling roads. I don't know how much they custom design the map on a special day like this, but on an ordinary remap they do a fair amount of tweaking and try a few different maps out. For the 156 generation cars, they have already done a lot of maps so probably won't need that much tweaking on each car.

My car was the first Brera 2.2 they did, it took some time and tweaking so was not done on an Alfa day!

Do they only map the JTD engines?

No, I think they can remap many different engines.

Count me in.
As Feldone says, do we need to sign up or "book in", or just turn up with some cash & an Alfa?
Thanks for organising it,
Cheers
Matt.
