Maybe, but they will ruin your car. All they do is sit inline with the fuel delivery module and up the amount of fuel being injected by a factor of X.

I repeat - stay WELL away.

If you want a remap, get one done - don't buy a plugin box off Ebay.

waste of time mate.

i have learnt that trying to go the cheap route when trying to tune your car is not to way forward.

spend a few extra quid and get a good company to remap it
