SHOULD I INFORM MY INSURANCE COMPANY IF I HAVE MY VEHICLE REMAPPED?

The changes made to your car though almost undetectable are none the less changes, and as with all modifications you are obligated to inform your insurance company.

CAN MY CAR BE REMAPPED?

Nearly all European petrol and diesel cars with an ECU (Electronic control unit) can be remapped.

WILL THE REMAPPING BE LOST IF I DISCONNECT THE BATTERY?

The remapping changes a software file in the cars ECU, so you will not lose the remap should you disconnect your vehicles battery.

DOES AN ECU REMAP INVALIDATE MY MANUFACTURERS WARRANTY?

This is a point of some contention, generally it is perceived that for a manufacturer to cancel a warranty due to someone having after-market services or parts added to their vehicle is an anti competitive practice and therefore against European laws.

However if it is stated in your documentation that remapping your ECU will invalidate the warranty, then it will probably do so.

Unlike many other remapping companies we only carry out custom chip remaps which are tested and tuned to suit your vehicle and your needs, we naturally only modify the vehicle to within the safety limits of the vehicle and its components and certainly will not push your vehicle beyond those limits.

The European law states that a manufacturer cannot cite after-market services or parts to void a warranty or reject a warranty claim. The manufacturer need to prove that the service or part is the direct cause of the failure and the Burdon of proof rests with them.

CAN MY VEHICLE BE CHANGED BACK TO ITS ORIGINAL SETTINGS?

In the unlikely event that you would want your vehicle to revert back to its standard settings after a test drive, then we can of course return your vehicle ECU to its original pre-remap settings with no cost to yourself at all
