first forgive me if they sound bit daft as I know nowt about remapping,
First ,the car as done just over 83000.is it worth having a car this old and this many miles remapped ,
If it can be done,would I notice much diff after its done ,thanks
Good evening

Really interesting write up. Can I ask why you decided against having the run completed at DMS Automotive seeing as they are based in Southampton? I am down that way so just curious.

Thanks

E350 CDi AMG Night Premium Plus (Sept 2015) with GAD Tuning re-map. Definitely not double badged.

I looked at DMS but had the feeling they were just going to re-map using a standard 'tuned' map rather than actually getting in there and tweaking it. Also, GAD are able to do a full read before writing so all the engine codes stay the same rather than being set to the same numbers as every other re-mapped car.

Also, GAD appeared to have an excellent reputation and many recommendations on this forum.

Basically, I wanted a tuning service rather than a remapping service and I think I got exactly that. Long drive from Southampton, though.

Have you any more observations now you have had the map a while? Insurance go up by much? Fuel consumption etc?

I don’t think you’ll get much sympathy for that very first world problem... you got to drive your tuned Mercedes on a long drive... ;) :p

I did test the mpg over a few runs to the office (Southampton <> Cambridge) and any differences are down in the noise. Maybe I'm not using the extra power often enough. Insurance went up about £50, which for me is roughly 10%
