To be honest there was a good difference in hp from 184 to 228.2 but I am a little bit disappointed on torque from 380 N.m to 387 N.m, an increase of only 7 N.m. This is not normal, generally after this remap torque must...

    Has anyone who owns this exact model opted for a remap ~+36BHP and was it worth it?? Had a few quotes ranging from £250 to £540 which is a little bonkers why I am sure they will do it the same way.
