    Had both.
    Both excellent.

    I was only going as far as Stage 1 so went for the cheapest, which this time around was SHARK.
    The SHARK STS handset is a neat little thing if you plan on map switching.
    Now:
    -MK2 Golf Gti 16V/VR6, Oak Green, Shrick, Intake, Decat, Kish Retrim, Lenso BSX..
    -BMW 335d Xdrive, Estoril Blue, fully loaded.

    Before:
    S3 (8P), Ibis, DSG, Milltek, SHARK

    BMW 320d M Sport
    S3 (8P), Sprint, REVO, H&R Springs, BBS CHs,

    Golf MK5 GTi 20TFSI - REVO Stage1, Red.
    Golf MK5 GTi 20TFSI - Std, Shadow Blue
    Civic Type `R`
    Golf MK4 GTi 18T - 200bhp, MTM ECU, Forge DV
    Golf MK3 VR6 - Cat Back
    Corrado VR6 - JAMEX
    Corrado G60 - JAMEX, BRM Charger rebuild
    etc....

    That's where I'm gonna go if I'm gonna chose shark, the said they would spend 3 to 4 hours on the car getting the map right, which I was really pleased with for the price I got quoted!!

    Shark maps I think are very good.

    The only thing I'd say that let them down(only HQ does this apply to) is they seem to struggle to respond to emails.

    Sent them one through their website probably a month ago now and nothing back.

    Had the same problem last year too, but fairly backed up by illness on their part, but you'd think they'd be more than one on the emails.

    Either way, product is great, customer service could be improved.

    I bought a Stg 1 map and STS from Graeme at GNJ Motorsport, very pleased. The car goes very well. Can't imagine going back to standard. In fact I fancy a new exhaust and then going Stg 2!

    Yeah it's good, even with the cooler I find external temps play a huge part in performance.

    So cold mornings, cold evenings its brilliant fun, but anything over say 18 deg outside I find it can get 'sluggish' (obviously not bad bad!)

    Either that or I'm far too used to it!

    A little planned for the future, but money to spend elsewhere first.

    Maybe next year!
