    Best thing to do is calm down mate lol. Id ring regal and see what they say. They might be able to reset the ECU.

    not as far as i can understand.
    Looked on the FAQ on the eds wedsite and it says that they store a back up so hopefully when i ring on monday they can make the cdes available again! fingers crossed.... but for now i'll just have to be carless and face the wrath of the mrs!!! AHRRRRRRR!!!!!

    It'll be fine mate don't panic. I had the same thing happen to my zaf when the battery died during mapping. If you contact regal they will email you a rescue file that will put the standard map back on and then you just map it again to whatever stage you want.
