    I'm guessing it's the 10p maplins resister shite, which overfuels the engine causing potential problems.

    Utter crap, about as beneficial to your car as cleaning it with a brillo pad.

    this made me laugh..

    look at the quoted feedback they put in the listing...

    works a treat 0-60 down from 11.3 to 8.2 (fiat punto cabrio) A*

    if that resistor knocks 3 seconds of the 0-60 time of a droptop Punto, then I'll stick my car on ebay for a penny. delivered.

    I'd be interested to see how adding an obstruction to the air intake can increase power and economy!

    photoshopped I guess, :P and yes, they do make your car quicker.. by constantly jamming your choke on.. which will carbon up your piston, and use more fuel.. not good idea. Would be harmful to your engine after a while, alright if you had it on a switch or something I guess.. oh well.
