    Heard of them.

    Good product so long as you feel your car has a DBW throttle lag.

    I personally don't feel my S4 does and driving on part throttle in peak boost is already an art.

    However some cars have really bad DBW throttlel ag - pretty much any modern Mercedes for instance. I wanted a device like this when I have one but they were not around, if they had I would have jumped at it. The Mercedes forums rave over them.

    Z82 you are not DBW but NDBW so no good to you and that also goes the same for Fermented as you both have a cable attached the throttlel.

    You can chip your cars, you may just have to order a chip for your ECU's and have it fitted by a Pro or better still ....

    Yeah I was thinking, remap (theres a local guy that will do mine for £175) & exhaust but if Im selling the car early next year theres no real point so I'll prob just get a panel filter at next service (soon) and leave the rest for my next A4
