    A very nice Fire Opal Red W204 C200 CDI in today, for a Stage 1 re-map. Gains of 70BHP and 122NM whilst saving 5-8% fuel on a longer run. Win win!

    In very good condition as well, being a late 14 plate, just before the 205 cut off.

    Frankie the dog, was very impressed.

    Shame about the issues some people have with Fire Opal Red because it is a great colour. :)

    I agree. I really wanted my C63 in red, but all the ones I looked at had micro blistering :(

    That's true, I have heard that the microblistering comes back but haven't confirmed it first hand....

    I’ve seen a few good resprays but none long term either

    Great gains for a single turbo , must be somewhat detuned as stock .

    Yes they are significantly so! Big difference as well. Not too peaky which is nice, even though single turbo. The older CDI's get a bit "spikey" in their torque delivery when overtuned.
