    I cannot fathom why you would ask for prices on here when there is a telephone number, fax and Email on their website. Sometimes the old fashion way, i.e. speaking to the supplier, is quicker and better mate. :tocktock:

    I did actually, because it is directly below where the telephone, fax and Email details are ;). But given that you said you were thinking about saving up for one, I don't think waiting until Monday really mattered.

    Anyway you have already had an answer from Dunk on this in another of your posts:

    :icon_thumright:

    Edit: I should expain better that my point was I would have asked him on that thread.

    Jabbasport are a very good company but then again there are quiet a few good diesel tuning companies around at the moment that can fit/map hybrid turbos.

    Jabbsport ae good but they do charge ££££

    Some people like paying ££££ for tried and tested. Cant argue with their service to be honest but there are cheaper places about i'm sure that will do just a good job but without the reputation!

    I had a stage 2 done on my beetle there
    Milltek, Neuspeed Intake, Neuspeed DV, Remap and it came to £1200!

    ...and that's expensive? I'd expect to pay almost that just for the exhaust.

    Just a back box on a stage 2 car? How's it flowing enough gas for the higher power map?

    Yeah was full system, went back a month later and bought the milltek cat for 300 and had it tweaked again

    Map was £500 of it, thought that was pricey seeing as maps can be had for £250-300 these days

    Personally I wouldn't go anywhere near someone handing out remaps for £300. You really did land yourself a bargain getting all that from a reputable place for £1,200.

    Price has nothing to do with the quality of map, £300-£400 is about average for a generic map these days and £500 for a custom map.

    Generic will be based on a std car, custom will be altered to take into account any mods you have (eg exhaust, intake, etc...).

    £300 might be a common price, but I'd rather pay the extra and get it from someone I trust.

    Generic maps are a one file map put on every car with that type of ECU. Tuning companies can get hold of generic maps very cheaply these days. "Custom maps" is a very over used word as far as i am concerned as on a custom map somebody might have just tweaked a file or two and hay presto now a £300 map is a £500 map thankyou sir. A true custom map is when the mapper takes into account of all the mods and how you want the car to drive and takes a lot of time and effort to get right.

    I can only speak for diesel maps but the only companies charging more then £400 for a generic map these days are Revo ( good maps but a piss take price ) and Superchips. Jabba,JBS/Custom Code plus lots of other well known and trusted tuning companies sale generic maps these days for sub £400.
