Shark remap - doing the maths

    As there is a deal on with Shark til Monday, I can get a Stage 1 (320BHP) for £299; bargain! Checked with Privilege and they want another £220 ish for the remaining 9 months of my policy.

    The question is....

    How much better is the fuel economy if anything? Given that people get 25 MPG ish and I am doing 10K miles per annum - I reckon that's about 400 gallons of fuel a year. An extra 2 MPG will save me 30 gallons a year or about £190 thus justifying the insurance hike in my mind.

    What do you reckon?

    Hey dude, are you looking to go to Mansfield or come to me in Manchester. You should see a 10% increase in economy, but the car drives BEAUTIFULLY on the software it really, really does.

    That's the kind of maths that convinced me to buy my S3 instead of a MkV Gti (well, it's only £5k more for that R32 I saw, but I'd rather an A3 3.2, but the difference up to an S3 - what I REALLY wanted - accounting for lower tax and fuel cost, is made back within 2000miles... or something along those lines).

    I reckon go for it. If you bother putting the effort in to convince other people it's going to be good value, then you must bee keen to get it done.

    Hmmm is it the same deal? Manchester is probably closer tbh but tempted by the talk of a redhead with cracking cans!

    N8's company is far more worthy than a pair of boobies :)

    Get back to your insurer !! I added Revo stg1 2 weeks after i took out the policy and it added £65 to the premium and that was with Audi insurance which is not cheap !!!!

    What deal has Shark got on? Not seen anything. Is it all remaps or just selected?

    Dont know if it's all remaps. £150 discount if paid before end of Monday I believe for my S3. Worth a PM to N8

    That's a cracking deal and from my conversation with the Guy who actually writes the software for Shark at the burger stand whilst enjoying Cheryl's offerings - too good to be missed.

    I liked both his approach to tuning and also his responses to my questions, all his focus is on linear and safe power delivery which can be replicated time after time opn dyno or in real world driving etc.

    An impressive set up and one to watch for the big boys out there as I believe Shark performance will do very well indeed as past history has already shown.

    Dude, don't bother to justify it just do it, really wakes the car up in a positive way :)

    Stop trying to justify it with daft calculations of fuel economy and just get it done :)
