    ecu remap or tuning kit

    ok, i bought my astra today, i got the 1.9TDCi 150! Picking it up monday

    I originaly wanted to get the tuning kit, but them my m8 said a remap would be better as theres no proof that it has axtually been done so all my warrenties and everything are still valid!

    What do you guys think?

    yeah it is my own car, but all I'm worried about with a remap is selling the car after I'm finished with it. Are garages going to worry about wether its been remapped? as i'll probably be sell it part exchange.

    Dont think you have anything to worry about, if your part exchanging i doubt they will even notice and if they do they should be smart enough to realise remaps on diesels is no big deal and he will probably be able to sell it for more.

    Thats kinda what I wanted to hear, the ECU remap from angel tuning seems to be a good option for me, they will come to me and complete the work in an hour. And if the dealers aren't worried about it, or wont notice even, then I've got nothing to worry about.

    Thanks
