BMW X5 3.0D M Sport 235Bhp Auto
ECU Remapped 01/03/2012
Gain 45BHp 110Nm
Very nice solid vehicles the newer BMW X5 and this one had only 29k miles – but the new owner wanted a bit more power – well thats our speciality – 45Bhp and 110Nm of torque will make all the difference – Enjoy Steve

BMW 325I E93 Auto
ECU Remapped 01/03/2012
Gain 17BHp 30Nm
After having his BMW 320D remapped this customer brought his new BMW Cabriolet straight round to have tweeked – although not such a profound gain being NASP the throttle response is improved and the gains are very linear – right throughout the rev range

VW Golf 2.0 GT Tdi 170Bhp
ECU Remapped 02/03/2012
Gain 35BHp 62Nm
The 170Bhp version of the 2.0Tdi engine is pretty powerful anyway but why not make the most of your engine by remapping it. nice gains and a super smooth power delivery make this a very swift diesel

Alfa Romeo 159  2.4 Jtd
ECU Remapped 03/03/2012
Gain 40Bhp 85Nm
You must own an Alfa Romeo before you die – according to a certain Mr Clarkson – well you certainly could do worse than a 159, practical size – very nice interior and a spirited engine – If you do get one though you might as well get the most out of it with a FlashRemapping Remap – Then you can drive like a true Italian

Ford Focus ST 2.5 , 225Bhp
ECU Remapped 04/03/2012
Gain 50BHp 100Nm
The Fast Ford now represents good value for money in my eyes 6-7 grand will buy you a reasonable milage 2007 version and they are very nicely appointed
A FlashRemapping remap adds all the power you will ever need – better throttle response and smoother power delivery – lovely

Jaguar X-Type 2.0d
ECU Remapped 06/03/2012
Gain 35Bhp 70Nm
Fitted with the Ford 2.0 Tdci engine ( albeit with a worked head ) the x-type Jaguar is a decent enough vehicle that could just do with a little extra zip – thats what we do ( with bells on ) now baosting 165BHp this will be a good car for years to come

BMW 320D 177Bhp Auto
ECU Remapped 06/03/2012
Gain 40BHp 80Nm
BMW Diesels are fine vehicles with a timing chain rather than a cambelt, we have genuinely seen them with 300k on the clock, this 2008 version had a bit less than that, 84k which is just run in really. The customer was looking for a bit better performance and thats what we gave him 40BHp makes a really nice difference with these cars

Vauxhall Corsa D 1.3 Cdti
ECU Remapped 06/03/2012
Gain 20BHp 50Nm
Litte Fiat engined Vauxhall Corsas are underpowered 70 or 75Bhp is not enough by todays standards and a destinct lack of torque makes them hard work on the motorway. Fortunately we can do something abaout that gains of 20BHp and 50Nm will certainly make this a more enjoyable drive

Ford Mondeo 2.0Tdci 130Bhp
ECU Remapped 07/03/2012
Gain 30BHp 60Nm
Adam also drives a slk 3.2 supercharged so this just wasn’t cutting the mustard and needed a performance tune – ” thats put some hair on its chest” was the comment after the test drive – and he will be getting more mpg as well  – happy days

VW Jetta 1.9 TDi 105Bhp
ECU Remapped 09/03/2012
Gain 38Bhp 75Nm
Having woned his Jetta for 4 years and always feeling it needed a bit more poke the time had come to get it done
( not before time ) and with a weekend trip coming up to EuroDisney there will be plenty of time to test out the new power – If you need a car with a large boot the Jetta is incredible enought room for all the childrens kit

Range Rover Sport TDV8 Auto
ECU Remapped 09/03/2012
Gain 68BHp 160Nm
Oh yes 160NM of extra Torque – wey hey    thats huge
and this Left Hand Drive R/R Sport is now the car it should always have been – an absolute monster and decent (25-30 mpg) fuel economy   – nicely upgraded rear lights as well

Land Rover Discovery  TD5
ECU Remapped 11/03/21012
Gain 35BHP 70Nm
Go anywhere, Do anything the discos ae great vehicles but downtuned as they are sold all over the world where fuel qualities are of dubious levels – a remap makes all the difference here – the customer noticed it immediately even when he was reversing off the drive – will help towing the caravan or boat now as well

BMW 320D Coupe 177BHp
ECU Remapped and DPF Delete and Removal
Gain 40+ BHp 80+Nm
When you have a 2009 BMW and the DPF blocks after just 35,000 miles you would expect BMW to fix it under warantee – NO – This customer was told by BMW the DPF is not covered , and by the way that will be £2000 to replace it – Crazy – We have removed the DPF from this vehicle ( a little trikky as it is in the same downpipe box as the Catalytic converter ) and remapped the ecu ( deleting all DPF strings from the programming ) at the same time all for 1/4 of the price

VW Crafter 2009 2.5 TDI 109Bhp
ECU Remapped and DPF Delete 13/03/2012
Gain 35BHp 70Nm
Another vehicle that is just at the end of warantee with a blocked DPF only 58k miles on this one – will VW fix it under warantee – NO – the DPF is not covered and again £2000 to replace it – This customer had physically removed the blocked filter and we have remapped it with a blend remap and deleted the DPF strings – now drives a lot stronger and with no smoke at all – fuel efficiency will be massively improved too

BMW E93 330D 231Bhp
ECU Remapped 15/03/2012
Gain 42BHp 90NM
When you have a e93 M3 in the garage but the fuel consumption is getting you down what do you get – well this is a fine option – not as powerful as the M3  but incredibly torquey especially after its mapped and twice the mpg – good call

VW Golf GTI 2.0 Tfsi
ECU Remapped 18/03/2012
Gain 40+ BHp 80+Nm
The GTi has always been a good car but this one had a few little problems – the Cat had been removed and was showing an 02 sensor light and an airbag light was on – we cleared all the fault codes and remapped the car desensatising the 02 sensor
As its was a dsg gearbox we have also mildly tuned this to give smoother gearchanges – Big power gains make this the GTi to keep up with

Audi A4 1.8T Cabriolet 163Bhp Quatro
ECU Remapped 20/03/2012
Gain 40BHp 80NM
Bit unusual this car being a cabriolet and a quatro and the BJB engine which was 163BHp stock – certainly a big performance gain here with a remap – it feels a lot more urgent
Mercedes w203 C200 CDi 122Bhp
ECU Remapped 20/03/2012
Gian 38BHp 75Nm
122 Bhp is very soft in these c200 cdi s although its is still the same 2148cc engine that powers the c220cdi – the remap certainly gives it the zing you would expect from the Three Pointed Star makers
Seat Leon Cupra R 225Bhp
ECU Remapped 21/03/2012
Gain 40BHp 80NM
Not a slow car in the first place the Cupra R but the 1.8T engine in this car car take some more – now 265Bhp is pretty chunky – pretty quick down the road too
BMW 530D Auto
ECU Remapped and DPF Removed 23/03/2012
Gain 55BHp 110Nm
When you are staring down the barrel of a £2000 bill from BMW for a DPF replacement on a 530D there has to be an alternative – and here at FlashRemapping we provide it for a drastically lower price we can remap the vehicle and remove DPF software from the ECU, We can then remove the physical filter from the vehicle releasing more power and much better fuel economy
Skoda Octavia VRS 2.0TFSi 197Bhp
ECU Remapped 23/03/2012
Gain 40+BHp 80+Nm
For around 2/3 of the price of a Golf GTi you can get the same engine in a very sensible and well appointed car – for an extra £300 you can get it remapped and release a whole load of power and put a big smile on your face – Sean certainly came back grinning from the test drive – Enjoy
Renault Laguna 2.2 DCI 150Bhp
ECU Remapped 26/03/2012
Lots of car for the money, especially in Initial format with leather, sat nav crusie air con and a sunroof – but its lacking a pit of punch – exactly what a remap offers – with the turbo pushing more air through at lower rpms the whole drive feels stronger – happy days
Ford Fiesta V1 1.6 TDCi 90BHp
ECU Remapped 27/03/2012
Gain 30BHp 60Nm
This Fiesta is really nice – check out those wheels and a full black leather ST interior – its definately a cut above the average – and now with a FlashRemapping remap boasting 120BHp its a cut above the rest in the performance department too
Audi A8 3.0 TDI V6 Quatro
ECU Remapped 28/03/21012
Gain 50 BHp 110NM
its no supprise that the executive motors like the A8, Phaeton, 7 series BMW and Mercedes S class are most reguarly powered by diesel engines – It makes sense a luxury barge that will return good mpg plenty of torque and quiet enough engines – Remapping just puts the icing on the cake, better mpg and more smooth power – yumm
Saab 9-3 HOT 2.0 Turbo
ECU Remapped 28/03/2012
Gain 40BHp 80Nm
The HOT or Aero versions of the SAAB 9-3 are pretty swift and yet we can still improve a lot further with just some tiny changes to ecu data another 40BHp is unleashed – That will be some fast top down motoring this summer for this customer
Jaguar X-Type 2.2 d
ECU Remapped 29/03/2012 Blue Optimise
Gain 20BHp 45Nm
Fuel prices are going up and still trending higher so this customer was looking to gain the most mpg he can from his already frugal Jaguar – 10-15% fuel savings are to be expected from a common rail turbo diesel vehicle typically – although we have seen savings as high as 20% – Why not have your Blueness turned on with a BlueOptimize remap
BMW X5 3.0D Auto
ECU Remapped 29/03/2012
Gain 40BHp 100Nm
Stuart wanted to save fuel and help his X5 get off the mark quicker – he also tows a trailer quite regularly so we had a slightly different approach than we would normally take for economy tuning – basically we have given the big BMW a performance tune but with slightly less fuel in the map than we would generally add – this will assist him when towing and get the heavyweight BMW off the mark quicker but also save on fuel – immediately he also noticed snappier gear changes on the auto box which is a positive side effect of a FlashRemapping remap
