Vinnyvangough's Mk1.5 Tdci Eco-Wagon

02 August 2014 - 11:35 AM

Picked this in March for a run around and daily hack.

Nothing special.
155k on the clock, seems to run sweet.
Had to find something a little more economical rather than the Escort RS2000 costing me a fortune in fuel every week.

And update from last week

I'm averaging 420-460 miles per tank whereas the RS was doing 200-220. Savings are immense but still don't seem to have any money lol.

Finally got round to chucking the 17" BK166's on.

Mk1.5 Focus Tdci 115Bhp 1.8 Remap

29 June 2014 - 11:19 PM

Has anyone had their car remapped?

 

What mileage had yours done when it was remapped?

 

Any issues you had since?

 

Mine is on 160,000 miles, I've had it for the last 5k. It runs smooth, pulls well and has apparently spent most of it's life on the motorway.

 

I'm just unsure whether to remap it or not with this sort of mileage.

 

Opinions needed.
