    Hi Steve,

    I had the same car as you (180 bhp manual) and wanted a bit more out of it. I kept reading that the 2.5 doesn't respond well to mapping but I went ahead anyway!

    I bought an st3 from chip and spin with 2 maps, eco and fast road, both had good/bad parts, after going back and forward and a trip to chippeduk for a tweeked map I was happy, the car pulled like a train! Unfortunatley it got written off by

    As I say - we got there in the end!

    Economy was identical - dispite the +5mpg claims, good customer service from Mark at chip and spin. Not sure where they are but it dowsn't really matter, the ST3 is posted to you and you keep it.

    not to keen on the idea of a posted chip,i found a company called remapscience in bradford they do a remap to suit your car for a price that seems quite cheap,has anyone used them or heard of anyone using them?

    JBS did a custom code remap on my 2.5,very happy with it
    pulls much stronger & wakes up at about 1500rpm rather
    than 2000.
    Not sure where they are located but they a company listed on this
    site,last time I looked they were doing 30% off.
