    Apologies if this is in wrong part of forum.

    Has anyone had any dealings with this guy? Or for example the chip that seems to be getting sold.

    For such a low cost it must be dodgy, but thought it worth asking. What do you think?

    I think that you need to read past all the muppet feedback e.g. "110% Genuine, great comms and the quickest delivery ever!!!! Many thanks"

    This probably sums matters up.

    "P&P outrageous - cost 50p, instructions not easy to follow or even car specific."

    It's a bad idea and is not a remap or chip.


    "UNLIKE OTHER SELLERS ON eBay IM NOT JUST SENDING YOU A CHEAP RESISTOR WITH SOME ELECTRICAL TAPE. THIS IS AN ENCLOSED UNIT WITH PROPER FITTING KIT AND INSTRUCTIONS."
    He's sending you an expensive one instead.
