Hi all

I am now a proud new owner of a 159 1.9jtdm Lusso as of 3 hours ago. What a machine!!!

Just arrived back in the house, looked at the trip computer and realised Ive put 100 miles on the clock :lol: Absolute pleasure to drive!!

Engine is sweet as and every button inside her seems to work fine. Planning to get her remapped and possibly loose the dpf and egr. Can anyone recommend anywhere local that does a good map?

So if you see a red 159 tearing round Ballyclare with an eejit with a huge grin behind the wheel gimme a wave.

Cheers.

Hi Brian, and welcome.

Auto-tune in Ballymena are very good. They will advise against removing the DPF, but if you at least get the EGR disabled, that will eliminate the source of most of your engine problems. Worked for me.
