    second hand SUPERCHIPS BlueFin, anyone ?

    Hello

    I have a second hand superchips Bluefin for sale rrp Ł599.00 as used on my Audi A3 2.0 TDI S line DSG with fantastic results

    all that is required is for the unit to be sent back to superchips for reprogramming to the suit new vehicle. This costs Ł127.00 But I will cover this cost.

    sensible offers around Ł350 thats a saving of Ł250 over a new unit.

    if i fail to get intesest here I will list on Ebay
    LAND ROVER DEFENDER 2.5 Td5
    EGR valve removed, DE-cat down pipe, Turbo boost pressure increased to 22 psi, Upgraded full size intercooler, Stage 3 remap, single mass flywheel conversion, with performance pressure plate and racing friction disc. 210hp 500 Nm

    The Audi A3 2.0 TDI S line DSG Has gone and forgotten

    Superchips/bluefin currently reduced to Ł499, Audi Sport discount = Ł50 so only now worth Ł449.
    The issue with your sale is it could be viewed as an abuse of the goodwill offered with the bluechips transfer process as its intended for the customer not resale. IMO you should just sell the handset for Ł149 which represents the 30% discount the new owner will be offered for already having a handset to PX.

    I think the transfer fee outside of the initial 12 months is approx Ł190, I seem to remember paying Ł180 odd the other year but it may have been discounted, in fact can't remember the last time I bought something that was'nt !!

    Either way the price is too high but good luck with your sale anyway..

    Sorry Steve, I have to agree, the asking price is way to high.

    I currently have one for sale, less than 3 months old, boxed and complete for Ł100 + Ł10 P&P

    Cheers,

    Rob
