I have been looking at getting a 159 diesel but already know that I would want more power. I have been doing lots of research along with my cousin who already has one so last week we took a trip up to DTUK, this site seems split over DTUK but other sites cant seem to praise them enough so as they are local we decided to give them a go.
Andrew, the owner of DTUK, met us at the unit on Good Friday, even though they were technically shut. The guy himself could not have helped more! He fitted a 'CRD-2' module (Diesel Tuning UK | Select the right tuning system for your car
) and it absolutely blew my mind! I cannot believe that such a simple mod can make such a difference to a car!
The driveability of the car is completely transformed beyond all recognition and feels so much more powerful, I will get my cousin to give me some feedback on economy after he puts some miles on it, but needless to say at the minute he is enjoying the power a little bit too much
Whilst I was there Andrew let me have a play in their Navara that also has their new toy on it, the 'Pedal Box' which essentially acts like a sports button, no extra power, just much improved throttle response. Very interesting little product, though I have no idea how it feels on the Alfa as my cousin was too tight to spend the money to buy one and we didnt want to waste any more of Andrews time
Needless to say that it has pushed me even further towards buying a 159 and now the search is on
