Re: Now the proud owner of....

It's on a PCP deal so re-map out of the question as I will be handing it back in 3 years time.... Was thinking of buying a box so I can hot swap when I want to... all in good time though, need to get bored of my 130 horses first!

Re: Now the proud owner of....

What other options do I have if I have to hand back?
  1. Do not remap
  2. Buy a box

... bit of a lame situation you see.... I know boxes are a massive no no, but there are a few success stories!

Probably free to get it removed. remap prices vary depending where you go, you can get discounts for being a member on here. look in the stickys above

Re: Now the proud owner of....

I could get to redot pretty easily, but I really didn't think the remapped ECU could be reverted back to 'factory default'... are you sure of this?

Red-dot is pretty much the best from what most people will say, its where i got mine done and ffoxy too, very proffesional and they have a RR they might do it for 200 if you PM oldschool, also he will be able to tell you if it can be reverted im certain it can thou, as they save your old map. do it man!! you wont be dissapointed.

p.s. they have a rolling road day coming up look in the events section of the forum. then its defo 200.
Thanks PeteyPye thanked for this post

Yes as Beany says You need to speak with Oldschool on the cost of reverting back though, may be a charge if the removal is not because of any dissatisfaction with the work. Safe to check first IMO.
