Can anyone tell if I have had a remap?

The method in which we perform the remap engine tuning upgrade will remain undetectable by the dealer from your standard diagnostic scan & service etc.. Of course if your dealer was to compare actual telemetry/settings then they could in theory detect a difference in the file.

Under normal scrutiny and down to the way we install/write/develop our files we go as far as possible to keep the remap invisible! This also includes ECU counters reset etc

Why don't the manufacturers upgrade the ECU from the factory?

The short answer is costs, It is far easier and cheaper to produce two or three different ECU maps with different bhp (eg 90, 110, 130) for one engine than to develop three different engines. Factor in varying qualities of fuel available worldwide. Your engine must cope with poor fuels, lack of servicing and general neglect. If you do service your car to the manufacturers specification and use good quality fuels, as found throughout the UK your engine can be optimized for better performance & efficiency without affecting the reliability of your engine.

We always recommend using high grade fuels such as Shell, BP or Esso and advise customers to avoid of supermarket quality fuel were at all possible.
