What can you do for my 55 plate 200CDI GCL, oh, and how much!!

Hello, The best option for you would be the ST3 unit (Im assuming that your in Southamptom which means you are a bit too far away from us).

The ST3 is a hand held device that holds three 'maps' Your standard ECU software and two modifed remaps, the majority of ST3 owners go for an Economy remap and High performance but you can choose anything from a track map, fast road, Power and ECO mix.
The unit will read your cars software which then gets sent to us, we will develop the software and return it back to you which will then be stored on the unit (this all happens via the internet and usually takes around 3 hours)

The unit will then store the three maps, and you are able to use the unit to write the software to your ECU when ever you want. The ST3 is basically a very simple remapping device. The unit is plugged into the internal OBD port and can be removed after writing the software to the ECU.

All remaps are custom so are developed to your requirments and come with three years warranty.

The normal price for the ST3 for your vehicle is £530 all in but with 20% off the price will be £440 all in through out June and July. Prices include:

> 2x Custom remaps of your choice
> The ST3 handheld unit
> Three years warranty
> Approval
> Postage
> Technical Support


Any more info please feel free to contact us!

Kind Regards

Sounds tempting - like having 3 cars in one.
Out of curiosity - what % benefits can you get from an eco map?
And how long does it take to switch them over?

@ Jberks

I have the ST3 unit my eco remap get's me a moddist 15-20% MPG wise however the performance remap is so addictive. im still gaining MPG whilst using the performace map but not as much as the eco map.


The switching between software is way to esay even the wife can do it :shock:

I would give gcl a pm or a call just to confirm things

Apparently if you state that you only had it done for economical reasons, they will not increase your premium

Not being funny what does your chip do? i brought a dragon tuning box for my scenic and i think all it did was raise fuel pressure a bit.
whats the difference between your box and this

chip alters fuel fressure, injection timing on cdi type engines, advance curves, boost pressure curves, overboost, gearbox settings in some cases. depends on the make/model etc of your car. it takes the factory settings and refines them for better economy or power etc. the plug and play generic boxes are ok but the custom ones like gcl offer are a far better way to go as its tailored to your particular car not just a generic thing that worked on 1 car so must do exactly the same on all of the same model with the same engine! when you drive as many cars as people in the motor trade (like myself and a good few others on here) you find that 2 seemingly identical cars are never 100% identical. therefore they wont get the same result running "identical" chips/remaps.

@ Amo rahal

Yes this is correct 90% of insurers will not increase you premium if for economy reasons , So the performance gain is just a side affect as you have to have more tourque to gain mpg.

Could you expand on the differences between"Fast road" and "High Performance" maps?

Could you expand on the differences between"Fast road" and "High Performance" maps?

We like to refer to the 'fast road' map as a 'fun' map. This is the map for the people that want to be thrown to the back of their seat as soon as they put their foot on the throttle. It is more of a torque based map which provides you with the feeling that the car is much faster on the road. This is the map that will decrease your 0-60 time and make the car 'whizzy' (this is a quote that one customer gave) at lower speeds.

The high performance map is more gradual with the torque, the throttle response is greatly increased but is not as aggresive. The torque will hold throughout the gears more on this map and the performance will be better top end (faster speeds) than the fast road. This map therefore feels stronger than the fast road.


It all depends on what you want...

Sorry, the pic posted is the wrong one for the box we provide. I'll try and attach the actual pic at some point. The difference between our boxes and the £99 ones from ebay is that our are custom. You say whether its more performance or economy your are after and the box will be developed to your needs. Obviously it is impossible to make a tuning box as custom as a remap, but the one we offer is the closest thing to it. Our tuning boxes are also remote meaning you can turn them on and off, and have settings which you are able to change.

I can't say what sort of differences there are between us and the £245 remap from ebay as I don't know the company, but check that the remap is fully custom allowing the technician to tweak it to exactly how you want. Make sure they offer warranty, and that the remaps are approved in some way.

Hope that helps!

Regards

Chipping or not chipping.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

i feel this issue is more about people than the engineering, like the "vegioil" burner boys the "chipping" boys are free to do what they consider to be good for them.
providing they inform the next owner and price the vehicle accordingly, then this is ethical.
we used to operate a large team with company cars, after three years some of the cars were thrashed out and others were as new, it's about people.
when i buy a car the previous owner's charachteristics will tell you in most casses how the car has been treated.
i agree there are good chipping people out there but no one could convince me that the manufacturers longevity would be maintained. also as a general rule there are a lot of things in life which fit the expression of "short term gain long term pain". it's just choice.
if i wanted my car to have enhanced performance i would employ somone like gcl tuning as they are tuv approved etc.
the performance of merc cars is superb and their best known feature is their longevity, this means that if you go outside the optimum performance blend set by the OEM,s then somthing must suffer. i would not buy a car which had been chipped / remapped. at the company i worked at if one of our tech reps had his car chipped he would be fired. also remember that insurance companies are always looking for "get outs" on claims over £5K, so this is another pitfall to consider.
if i was a women and i wanted my boobs made bigger i would go to harley street. it's about people and i am happy with what i have got. herbiemercman.
