Ahhh.. but... i had my ST 225 mapped to 286hp (supposedly)

Now,i appreciate what you are saying about insurance companies etc BUT.... How many times in your life after buying a car, have you taken it to a garage and asked them to plug your car in and ask them to check if it has been modified? Id like to bet NONE. Fact is unless there is a digital date stamp on the remap, how can they prove you you modified the car or in fact even knew about it?

It is not common practice for ANYONE to check and in fact 90% of people wouldnt know what it is! In a court of law, with this in mind, insurance companies would lose every time. Just check that there is no date stamp before you buy.

I used Eco Vehicle Tuning who install Celtic Tuning Maps, (Portsmouth area) and the car performed very well amd the gains were very noticable.
I will probably get my new 1.6 TDCI :/ mapped Extra 41BHP and i cant remember the tq.

To be honest I'm surprised at how little the insurance companies want for declaring a remap. When you consider how much extra power a remap can give you, that extra £80 is quite good value for money.

Theoretically you could buy a Bluefin, and only use it off road/ on track days etc, (eg - drive to the track, install the bluefin, do your track day then un-install the bluefin )  as its not being used on the road no need to inform your insurance
