Morning John,

I had mine done, basically, it improved performance (got rid of the turbo lag), improved economy too.

Depends where you go, I was quoted between £185-350 as it depends on what ECU is fitted to the car as it can't always be done via the OB11 port and needs on occasion the ECU taking apart....

Will PM the name of someone to talk to who is not to far from you (well not in a C6 )

It was £150 at the time, but I believe prices have gone up since then.

Angel were bought out some years back and service declined.... plus that's a lot of money for a remap in today's competitive market.
