    jave touched on this before but finally looking to remap in the. Extra few weeks.
    Amd tuning or Gad?
    Gad tuning coming out 300 bhp compared to amd 280 bhp?
    More torque too with Gad.
    Anyone had problems with remaps?

    Thanks in advance

    GAD remap on mine - painless experience to do, plenty of pleasure thereafter! No problems at all, only benefit.

    GAD do not have a rolling road and their increases are yet to be proven, just a thought!

    True, but the numbers don't matter to me - the driving does and the difference leaves me with no regrets + the slight mpg gain. :D

    The numbers only matter if you are comparing two or more different remaps.
    The bigger numbers don't mean a better map for me.

    GAD did my C350CDi and I am more than happy to recommend them, Anthony was brilliant and the difference is amazing.

    I will use them again

    sorry I wasn't saying their not a good map but the OP seemed to be interested in the headline figures and with that is comparing 2 maps from two different companies.
    I actually rate GAD as a tuner they're very professional and know how to make smooth powerful maps but their numbers just don't always add up IMO

    I'm agreeing with you!
    My point is the numbers don't really tell us the whole story...

    Lol I was actually agreeing with you as well in a round about way, it is strange how the written word can come across in different ways compared to face to face

    What's a ballpark cost increase for the insurance for the car if it gets mapped ??

    When I checked insurance for the Viano adding or removing the map option made little difference,
    until I came back 5 weeks later to take the insurance the difference then was approx £40.

    Course the remap is invisible, but, as a morally upstanding citizen my insurance uplift is.....
    confidential ;):p
