And have questions but 1 at a time :)

1, I looked at one today and they said it had BT. Lifting up the middle armrest it has some very old Nokia cradle. It had what looks like a telephone keypad by the radio and the buttons on the steering wheel but when I pressed this it just said "no phone". I couldnt find a menu where I could pair??
Could it be it does not have BT but does have to have a phone in the cradle?

Thanks

Are you sure you don't have to fit your old nokia into that cradle. ?.or you get blue tooth through the viseeo mb1000 which you put into that slot. I have one of those I am about to ebay if you recall interested..works absolute ly fine if it is...

Pictures or Web links would help

We have also worked on many C220 CDI's! Although I cant comment on owning one I know form our customers that they have one and love it! I did like the way they drive and handle in standard form. But is always fun with an extra 50 BHP :lol:

OP - apologies for the brief thread hijack.

A 50bhp increase on a 2.2 diesel - that's some increase :shock:.

My brother has a Alfa Romeo 159 2.4JTD - he will be interested in increases of that amount, but he'll want to see data - can you oblige please?

No problem, I would be interested in this too lol.

I see you can get chips online for around £80 that claim a 30bhp increase max. Are they any good??

I take it you mean a 203 C class coupe?

Nothing wheezy about my CLC 200 Kompressor petrol engine, far from it!
I prefer it to a friends 1 year old 220 diesel engine :)

I think mine is the same engine as was available in the older coupes?

Good morning,

The chips serve there purpose. Its a very crude way of tuning as it merely tricks rail pressure. It doesn't increase boost directly or amount of fuel injected it merely produces a finer spray pattern for more efficient atomisation.

Rather than "trick" the vehicle into doing something we can re write the bible it reads from and tell it to do something.

I hope this helps, any other questions feel free to ask away!!!

Regards

Anthony @ GAD

Hello Anthony - can you help me with data, to answer my brother's inevitable questions, as per post 10.

How would economy be affected with a 50bhp increase too?

Morning,

With this vehicle we can map on throttle position meaning you could have the vehicle act complete standard up to 80% throttle, then pedal to the metal that's where the performance map will be. Basically your throttle is your request so we can make the power delivery as harsh or smooth as you like, where ever you like it. Mapping this way is really good for customers who have mixed journeys as round town on light throttle it will still be smooth with little drama until you "request" your power.

I hope this helps?

Regards

Sorry I didn't actually answer your question! Like for like driving with a performance map you shouldn't use any more fuel, however if heavy footed it will drink your as your request more fuel.
