Not undetectable, they could plug in a laptop and read the ECU to see what map has been put on it. However an insurance company isn't likely to do that.

cheers.
Not sure what technology insurance companies have or use to detect this sort of thing but one thing i know they will 100% be able to see is that the ecu has had a new file uploaded to it at somepoint, i.e when mapped. But i dont think they would be able to tell the difference between a map or a Fiat update for example.

Not worth the risk though for what it costs especially if you have a huge crash. As the money would then be coming out your pocket for third parties.

I would be tempted to look else where then. I'm 26 with 4 years protected, all mods declared on a group 17 (old money) car for under 900.

The only time it would ever be brought to light would be in a multi million claim and or where people have died.

Quite often the car would be sent to a Police forensic lab where they often read the data from the car's computers. They can use the Airbag ECU to find out the speed at impact for example (and thus proove dangerous driving if you where speeding).

Me too, quoted me over 5k last year, and this year they just asked what my best price so far was (which I told them truthfully), and they just came back with: "Yeah we can't even come close to that, bye!"
