Hi everybody, I've just bought a mk 3, 1.6cc, it feels a bit sluggish when I accelerate, is it worth remapping this car   ?

Depending on what engine you have it might be worth checking if there are any software updates for the pcm with ford first. Mine is a 2011 1.6 ti-vct engine and when I got it a couple of years ago it didn't feel as powerful as my old mk1 1.6 even though it was going up from 100hp to 125hp. I had issues with occasional stalling when pulling up at lights and the tickover was a bit random around 750 rpm. I read on here that the software update levelled off the tickover around 850rpm and after I had all modules updated it stopped the stalling problem and felt a lot more powerful. 

You will have to get it booked in at a ford dealer to get the updates done but you may be able to get the updates done as part of a ford service.
