    if an installed map is not working correctly for the correctly specified engine, then they should feel obliged to sort it, regardless if its not their own map, if they supply a map, then they take on the responsibility of sorrecting it.

    atleast this is in my opinion, id have myself a good argument lad!

    KN51, remaining totally impartial and uninflametry, can you not say who the tuner that created this issue is?... Some of us would like to know, as this will enable other AOC members to make a careful decision about where not to take their cars.. You have mentioned their are lots of cars being remedied at Regal as a result!!........
    Star Silver SRI Turbo..'Red.Dot Reloaded'..Cybox Precat, Cybox Catback SS Exhaust..K&N Panel Filtered...9Ltr EDS SMIC!!.....

    This is all the more reason to take it back. What you are saying is they sold you something that dosent work. Personally I would go straight back and demand they fix the problem or remove the map and refund you. Paying someone else to repeat the work is mad (especially regal).
    Why not name and shame?...

    How long has the map been on the car? If its a fairly recent thing then see how good the mapping companies customer service is and ask them to take a look at it.
