    theres no possible way this could work, it talks about astra and vectra power gains for differant types of engines. no chip could have some sort of default map that could improve the power output of any engine it is connected to. it would need to be specifically designed and tested for a certain model and engine of a car.

    which would require testing, research and make the cost several hundreds of pounds, which they are.

    just another ebay scam trying to con people with false belief!

    If you want to chip your car get it from a named brand like uni-chip or super chip.

    That crap your looking at will more than likely **** your car up as soon as its put in or it time, plus the ebay items you have posted dont offer any guarantee what so ever

    Buy cheap crap and you'll get cheap crap simples
