I’ve recently bought the CLA 180 with the intention of remapping it to a stage 1 (stage 2 if advised). After doing some research and reading some horror stories... I was wondering what other mods I’d need to do before the Re map (if any) so my car can handle the extra power?
I remapped my previous car, BMW 2 series coupe with no problems and loved it.
I can give extra info on the cars spec if needed.
Thanks

Hello and welcome,

I'd give MSL, Gad or Alex a call - all of them are forum sponsors and have a great reputation - have a read of their threads

Firstly, welcome, Brad.
You don't need any other mods for a stage one re-map. :)

Mine wasn't that expensive when it was remapped last Nov.
Did your mate have a "My Genius" adapter as well so he can put the car back to stock when ever he likes or return the map back?
That would explain the £800.

He didn't mention it though , all new to him .

I'm bewildered though as he has yet to do over 60 and didn't seem bothered when I said a service which might include a software update would wipe over the map .
