    its fine - just like any other fairly generic 175-180hp remap - certainly makes the car more fun to drive, but if you are fwd you may need much better tyres than the factory ones, particularly in the damp/wet.

    Yes dealers could flash to original map, but if theres a software update your bluefin wont work, you'l need to buy new maps. Same as a remap

    i think if you car got upgraded then superchips would sort it out for you, once you prove its the same car - they could do all that on-line. im sure you wouldnt have to buy new maps.

    tyres - if you are a cheapskate then goodyear asymetric f1, if you are rich t hen ps2 or ps3 - nothing better than these 2 for all-round performance, particularly good wet grip for the winter too
