    Hi guys

    Ive been thinking about a remap to get a bit more power on my car, I was going to pay a company to do it but am now thinking to save the money and buy one of the tools off of ebay.

    Ive seen this item and also this


    What do you guys think of the 2 and which one would you say is better?

    Also ive read that these sort of ebay kits are dangerous, would you recommend staying clear completely or give it a go?

    Thank you

    Hi

    Try these guys out Celtictunning I have used them twice now once on my previous car a 320d Sport 2004 they took the Bhp From 150 to 200 I’ve also just had my wife’s 1 Series Bmw done the performance gains are amazing it also makes the car more drivable i.e. No flat spots etc, even my Wife loves the increased Torque .

    PS I’m not trying to tread on Mikes toes just offering a different option for you.
