    Never heard of them, but there a loads of differant serial port mapping companies about these days. The generic maps are readily available and any monkey with a laptop can upload one and tweek it's settings.

    I'd only trust my car with a recognised, established and most importantly RECOMMENDED tuning company. I'd recommend REVO, but there are many forum members who are equally happy with the products of other companies. Have a search for 'Remap' 'Jabba' 'AMD' etc.

    They look like a fairly professional company looking at there website http://www.slipstream-deutsch.co.uk/English/Index.asp and state they are specialist vag 1.8t tuners. They also state there maps are not generic but full remaps.

    Well they sound awful from this thread!

    Anyone had a remap from these guys?

    Not generic yet when there is a problem they need to remove the ECU and return it to Germany!

    Do people really think custom remaps can be had for 200? You can't even have one for 500! Still if people believe that tweaking 2 or 3 parameters out of the huge amount of information required to manage a modern engine is 'custom' thats there business i guess.
