My advice would be obviously to get a GOOD remap, the only disadvantage is the cost...
Everyone WHO KNOWS what the ECU is really doing really discourage installing these modules and you're going for the cheapest one so...
At least if you are going to buy one remove it in the case of the slightest sign of flywheel vibration or clutch slippage...
I'm not saying that the expensive ones are better but usually only some of the "digital modules" have a smooth rpm-based torque gain amount...

Lots of traffic - both for and against - on the 147/156 technical forum. My 20v can scare me shotless without either!

Yeh they do have quite a bit of pull well a lot of pull compared to a 1.3 jtdm but i think i can live with it for £30 year tax
