    Good video John. Remapping companies ALL make cake and eat it too claims. The obvious one is you get more power AND better fuel economy…………………………….nope, sorry, not happening. One or the other, pick your poison. Additionally, for those who are not clear about what John is saying here. Yes you can remap for extra power, yes you can remap for better fuel economy, however NONE of these aftermarket companies have the resources to test their settings like the manufacturer does. The manufacturer supplies you the car in various states of tune and WARRANTS it for a period of years. The aftermarket guys do not and cannot do this.

    So go ahead, remap your car and get more power and less economy, or better economy but less power (in both cases probably worse driveability and reliability over the longer term), just don't make claims that the maps are better than factory for overall driving, they are not, (especially when talking about the high end Europeans such as BMW and MB).

    If someone can get out of paying for something they will,even when it has nothing to do with a remap

    I was thinking of remapping my 2017 430d but after watching this I’ve decided I don’t want an expensive paperweight. Solid advice. Thanks

    hmm. Perhaps amateurs? My old e34 (back in the early 90s) was remapped (not a turbo so increase was only from 286 to 317ps), but I did 565.000 km in it thrashing it up and down the Autobahnen often in excess of 240 kp/h on a clear run. I sold it for 500 euros, still working burning no oil etc. at the said 565k km…

    of course when you remap your car, you do it at your own risks and it's funny to think about warranty, since you break the contract with your manufacturer. Yet, if you're engine breaks out of warranty (which is 2 or 3 years, a thenth of the car's life), you'll still have to pay whether it is stock or not – and we all know about engine failures. So is that really the point ? Do you have the percentages of failures with and without remapping to elaborate on the risks ?
    What we learned about the dieselgate, is that the manufacturers are not always to be trusted. They lied to us, probably still do, and certainly will. Then, how clever it is to say "just don't modify your car", is that what you expert from a channel with "Expert" in it ?

    If its done properly and safely there is plenty of reputable businesses who do there own in house testing on a dyno yes they may run a saved file for the car but then tweak the map according to the the vehicle while it is running on the dyno

    I can testify to this… remapped a 2009 Vauxhall Insignia from 128bhp to 180. I had no idea about safety limits and trusted the place I went to and they claimed it was a safe map but within 3 hours 3rd Gear linkage started popping out and then 4 hours later the oil pump seized. I got it recovered managed to get it back running again but it sounded like a bag of spanners so I sold it to scrap traders and got £350 for it :'( I have 2009 Audi A4 B8 now though but not making that same mistake twice. On the other hand I remapped a Golf from 105 to 150 but that one was fine though.

    Got a Cobb tuner for my 2018 WRX after about 6,000 miles of break in driving. It was the right choice, the stock tune was awful and Cobb's off the shelf tune made power delivery much smoother. No issues as of yet as 2020 approaches. I think the warning he gives here is legit if you are having some random shop do the tune, or you get the wrong off the shelf tune for your car. My advice is do your research and always keep in mind any modification can lead to a voided warranty. If you can't afford to go without the warranty don't mod the car. The farther you push an engine the less reliable it becomes.

    Remapped my 2012 Jaguar XF 3.0L Diesel, from 177kw/500nm to 239kw/695nm and it gets 4.8L/100 on the highway. Anyone who tells me that an ECU remap is pointless will be laughed at

    Did remapping 4 years ago on both my Hyundai H1 and my BMW K1600 GT, on the H1 the increase in power and fuel consumption was remarkable and on the bike the top end went from 260km/h to when I chickened out at 285km/h. I must admit that both vehicles became much better to drive and ride and the best feature was the improvement in overtaking.

    Lol! This guy is making a fool about himself. Even manufacturers are doing 'chiptuning', making one car, giving different software. Of course extra power will give extra pressure on internal parts, clutch, gearbox. You can not deny this, but saying it only is harmful is bullshit. I can tell you by experience with different cars and many friends who chiptuned and powerboxed their cars. The first person who damaged his engine by chiptuning I have to meet and I am already into cars for many years! With my Octavia 2.0 TDI am driving now 8 years with a powerbox from Speed-buster, extra power proven by a dyno , 170000 kms, no problems with using more oil, still first clutch. Abusing the car like crazy, last summer by 42 degrees celsius I drove from Brussels to Berlin and always full throttle and top speed if it was possible. This car, if it breaks is a car to throw away, then I will buy another one but it doesn't want to brake down… One thing I always do is warm it up carefully and after driving I let the engine run a bit to cool down to keep the turbo in shape.

    Worked at GM for 10 yrs and i KNOW they change chips on the 3.8, 5.0, 5.7. How do u think that the ss and cop cars got the extra ponies? If there's ever a problem just put it back to stock and claim the warranty!

    Only an idiot would pay $60,000 for a VW. To include VW shitbox "Porsche." The truth is, the kids doing the remapping are way more talented than OEM dinosaurs and their star trek flip phones.

    Funny how many 'experts frown on it' even though the manufacturers have been doing it to us for years – new facelift – bit more power (just software) and add 4 grand
