    Of course it is - it flashes the ECU with a generic MAP which will likely do what it says on the tin...however generic maps are not the best to setup your car as it will not exactly match the spec the map was written for...

    You can get a KWP2000+ and a tuned file off ebay for less than £100.

    I'm sure they're just as effective.

    yea, and all they recommend is that you fit a k&n panel filter...but most mapping places out there recommend major upgrades to reap the benifits
