    It doesn't work on all Astras.
    Only some (fifty fifty). Not entirely sure why.

    If it does work with your car, then it is a good tool to backup your map.
    On the other hand putting these public domain maps onto your car is quite a scary thought.

    You can flash a new map on the car, doesn't mean you can modify the map.
    This is a flashing tool, not a map editor.

    You do that primarily offline. After editing you will need to work out the checksum.
    And editing a map is not really a DIY process, things can VERY easily go very wrong... just one incorrect bit can mean needing a costly ECU replacement.

    Plus the basic package of WinOLS costs like £3k to buy.

    I had one of these are returned it... it screwed my ECU and it had to go back to vauxhall to be reset!
    The guy on ebay took it back with no heistation so obviously knew there was a problem!
    Basically there is no backup for error... so if your laptop/computer goes flat or has a dip in power (which a lot do when they go into power saving mode) and it doesnt read and write a part of the map properly it crashes the ECU.
    Please stay away from these kits at all costs and spend the money with a remap company and get a recent map with a proper kit.
