Hi have a few question's that i hope you can give me an honest opinion upon ... Me and the wife have just taken delivery of our new cls 320CDI can i copy a sat nav disc as mb would like to destroy my bank balence for the amount of £154 + VAT (Shocking) would this work ? also i ve noticed from other forums that there may be a software update for the gearbox ECM/ECU ? is this true and do i have to pay for it ? Last but not least i would like to remap / chip my vehicle is this possible ?


Thanks in advance

Clive

You can use copies in the sat nav, i have in 2 of mine, the software up-date will be under warranty if your car still has it,

Chipping side is all plug and play, just need to route the new wiring harness in and install the control unit, makes a hell of a difference!

It takes about 10-20 mins to check for updates and to SCN code the car!!

Ive have been told to steer clear of Plug and play devices ? I was thinking more towards a Remap just the software side of things or a hand held unit .

Opinions welcome

Thanks Clive

i have a feeling that a remap invaliates the warranty. the plug and play type can be removed if warranty work is required or the brabus chips come under the merc warranty, but do limit it to something like 60k miles.

Hi Guys thanks for the input ...

Ive spoken to many tuners today think im going with GCL Tuning as Tony really knows his stuff ! and they are forum members ive been quoted anything for 30 horsepower to 50 horsepower and £200 - 600 . Cost is not an issue for as long as my car dose not blow up ! (i shall not tell the wife )

Anyone had any dealing with GCL ?

Once again thanks
