Update as requested..

They cannot tune it OBD. They have picked the unit up today and will give me a refund.
They can tune it, just need to visit them first to ‘crack it’ (like BSR) then I could use the hand held device to load/unload the modified map if/when required.
I didn’t fancy that, hence the return.

After some investigation it seems many people can tune these, although the ECU needs to come out initially to overcome the tuning protection. Not really something I’d want to do to a company paid lease car.

I know I know ‘I shouldn’t be touching something that’s not mine’ but the poor old girl needs all the help she can get - circa 1800kgs with me in it and 188bhp...

You really dead set against a box?

I am waiting to see what the euro/pound does to see if I can get the cpa nitro box for less cash.

Afraid so. Tried two, had problems with both. That’s also £200.00 dearer than a remap with a before and after RR run...
