    Thanks guys. I reckon I could sort out the insurance side without too much grief, it just the warranty.

    I'm not sure if it this straight forward, but it seems that there are certain companies offering remaps who will warrant the car if the manufacturer walks away. These maps are significantly more expensive but it looks like you are almost buying a type of insurance.

    Do you guys agree, what are the chances of the remap company forling out for a new turbo, etc?

    The paranoia is still lurking!!

    It's just like going in a bookies. If you can get 10-1 on your turbo going bang and pay them the equivalent £400 these re-mappers charge then you get the idea....
    I am sure a modern, well cared for car will survive a sensible quality re-map quite comfortably...or at least I hope so, all mine have been mapped.

    If you are concerned, most vehicle tuners should be able to read your current vehicle file,and compare it to a known original version, and confirm if it has been tuned.

    On petrol engines, there is quite often an increase in the RPM limiter, but diesels are limited by the flame front speed / burn times so increases in RPM limiters on diesel engines are rare.
