    Difficult one. 225's came in late 2001, so yours sould be a 225 or a 210. Whats is the engine code? 225's were 'BAM' i believe!

    Insurance is cheaper on a 210 than it is on a 225!

    Group 17 vs Group 18

    Just to add, if you look at the sticker in the boot that lists the weight, paint colours and factory options, a 225 car says 165 KW.

    210 says 154kw, i had the same thing bought a late 2001 51 plate and assumed it must have been the 225, later found out it was not.

    Get a Revo chip with dual programme when you get it chipped, If you only swap to the modified map on trackdays you dont need to tell the insurers! They couldn't tell anyway if you remove it before any claim etc!

    I'd be very carefull with this. The revo code stays in the ECU even when you switch to "normal" mode!
    And you may not be in the position to switch it back to normal if you have a bad accident!

    If you are going to chip the car, tell the insurance!

    What happens if you kill someone and your insurance is void because you didn't tell them about the remap? Big bill!

    Just my 2p worth!

    Rich.
