What did your insurers say when you told them? An increase in bhp over the 'standard' figure is sure to interest them.

I put this thread up about the remapping, anything to do with insurance has nothing to do with you and im not going to discuss it on a public forum.

Mpg has already gone up, which im happy about,

I was considering a remap and was interested in the impact on insurance premiums. I mistakenly thought that this forum was a community of Doblo owners sharing information for mutual benefit.

I consider your reply to be unnecessarily harsh.

How would an insurance company know you've had a remap?
I've fitted a tuning chip, i'm not going to tell either

Re: Fiat Doblo Maxi 1.6 remap

The new Suzuki SX-4 cross, or whatever they call it, has the Fiat 1.6, in 120bhp form (actually 118bhp I think).

It gives 1-60 in 12 seconds and astonishing mpg figures, which apparently are realistic, or practically so. 20 road tax and a good handling drive, with a realistic 60mpg... I think so!

I would hope that Fiat fits this uprated engine to the Doblo soon, as the current 105, although smooth and lovely to drive in the mid range, is a slow gutless thing from standstill with appalling turbo lag. I keep trying to love it, but it isn't easy.

Okay, the Doblo is an unaerodynamic brick, and I have no idea how its weight compares with the Suzuki, but I'm afraid I am going to take a look at one soon because my Doblo's fuel consumption is pretty crap and nothing like that advertised.
But there is so much in the Doblo to like
