In Topic: Ecoboost 1.0 Tuning Possibilities = More Powerrrr!!!!

Got new map on monday. Before that I received map update maybe 2-3 weeks ago.

 

I guess to answer my own questions - I rang up Superchips just this last hour and asked if there had been any updates for the Ecoboost/100ps (last was 17 Feb) and they said yes. Had the text and email within minutes saying to download the new map. Pretty decent service as always, looking forward to giving it a go and finding out how things compare. Not sure exactly when the latest map was released other than sometime in the last month.

Thanks for the reply. What were the issues and what what's is it like now?

As you said, they replyed to my email also and I downloaded new map. I did not have time to try, but from what I can see, there is really strong push on every gear, no power loss felling - but I have to make more tests.

 

Hi, can I ask when you downloaded the new map? I bought Bluefin a while ago and noticed problems here and there. I reported them and Superchips had a new map out to me within the day, much improved too. However, this was maybe 3 weeks ago so I'm keen to know if there has been any revisions since. Thanks in advance.

Was ready to take the plunge with Motorpoint until they told me the car was an import from Malta with only 24 months warranty. Which started on the 1st January. The deal just looked too good to be true ... Unfortunately in this instance it was the case.

Has anyone had experience with drivethedeal.com? They are next on my hit list at 9,577.77.


That's a shame as it would have been spot on by the sound of it. Mines UK sourced, spec and warranty but you are sensible to check everything carefully and spot on as I had a Punto (not a great motoring experience, lol) many moons ago that was sourced from France. Pays to check so all the boxes are ticked. I've already had one small warranty repair too :-/

Nope, new ones too. In a lot of cases they are brand new with delivery miles but Motorpoint may be the first owner. Brand new car but you could be the 2nd owner where that's the case.
