    Hello all,

    I've just got a couple of questions to ask;
    What affect on performance for my car does a remap have?
    What affect on the insurance when declared does one have?
    And...
    Can anyone please reccommend me a company that does remapping? (Yorkshire or Oxfordshire preferably)

    Thankyou :-)

    You'd gain about 10bhp at the peak, although you will feel it all through the usual driving range too. Mainly the car will feel sharper and more eager. You will gain more torque too so overtaking will be a touch easier. Economy will remain the same for usual driving, but the more you push the car and use the extra power, the worse it will get.
    Generally that means you won't notice much unless you are quite a "sporty" driver.

    Insurance - I'd give them a call beforehand to make sure they are OK with it, as this is approx a 10% increase, most insurance companies aren't too concerned. If you have the type that slams the phone down it you mention changing your alloys, then they might not be too interested.
    Many these days are used to it and prefer to allow it will a small increase (often around the £50 mark) in a similar way to many not being too concerned with 3 points from a first speeding offence due to the vast number of people picking them up.

    Heading between Yorkshire and Oxford brings you pretty close to Birmingham too
