    Well it looks like the trip to AMD is off

    Went to my dealer today to have the original map flashed back on, can't be done to my horror!!!!

    If you have the latest Vauxhall software in your ECU, whether it be standard or altered my EDS/AMD/Mantzel/V-Max, you can't flash the basic programme back on.

    TIS states, "Latest version of the software already installed, re-programming not possible"

    So basically I am stuck with what I have and can't run standard software unless I buy a new ECU or Vauxhall issue a newer version of the software, which is doubtfull because the Zafira 3378 code has been current for 12 months.

    May be worth bearing this in mind, so if you have a standard ECU and is on the latest software, once it is mapped, you can't reverse it!!!!

    Lord Nikon probably had his car re-mapped with EDS before Vauxhall updated the original software, therefore when he requested to have the standard software re-installed, there was a later version to put back.

    I am waiting to here from AMD to see what they say.

    Found out a bit more info, Vauxhall dealers can't re-install it but your tuning company should be able to.

    I have just spoken to Courtenay, as they have my original program on file, they can re-install it, and I presume the likes of Regal/AMD ect should be able to do the same.

    But the Vauxhall dealers can't. But having spoken to Courtenay they have a new software that from the looks of it is as good as AMD's so I'll be going back to Jon in due course.

    Does sound strange that one, my GF has the AMD oneclick for her mini and it just uploads and downloads the old and the new as many times as you like. Works a treat as well.

    Oh well, at least the nightmare scenario of the dealer reflashing your ECU and overwriting your expensive map is gone.
