Although it's not from the same company, I've been running a Spider Arachnid tuning box on my MK2 1.8 TDCi Focus for just short of 2 years without any problems.  There's a definite change in performance between the modes, I'm currently in one of the upper performance modes and getting 56 MPG (calculated brim to brim) so not bad for 2005 old crate.

 

Given the choice/budget I suspect that most people (me included) would choose a remap from a reputable company but this has the downside of not being transferrable, unlike certain tuning boxes where you just purchase the appropriate wiring loom for your new car and ensure the box is using the correct preset for the new engine.
