    The Astra mk4 uses Flash ROMS instead of the old EPROM, which means that your ECU can be changed/rewritten over and over again without being changed. Reprogramming the ECU is also undetectable.

    Erm, if someone downloaded the map from your reprogramed ecu it would be different from your old one wouldn't it?

    They reprogram it but keep it logged as whatever your car is so VX cant detect the new map unless they drive it

    As you said all they have to do is drive it. or if it's undrivable at the time dump the map and have a look.
