Superchips looks good not too much power to melt a clutch. Dtuk looks good aswel plug and play like my old tunit box and can keep the power low so less stress on components.

No issues at dealers so far. I flash the car back before I go so maybe it's less obvious? either way i'm almost out of warranty.

The settings are all the same power on the DTUK box, the difference is how it is delivered. You can go super aggressive or as soft as stock.

Correct, mines on P1S1 and I am happy, no need to dick around with more settings, it does the job and impresses the crap out of me

Has anyone used Top Gear remaps before? My garage I have used for the past 16 years do these remaps. I think Top Gear is part of the powerflow exhaust franchise and the owners of the garage have done the exhausts and remaps for many years and use them on their own cars and works vans/trucks. For a gtd they say minimum 220bhp so same as superchips etc.

never heard of 'em............. IMHO you are better looking for a remap that is tried and tested.

Dervtech are meant to be amazing. I got a quote from them and they said for 550 they could get my GTD to 240 bhp and 500+nm torque (around 340 lb ft)

They will be who I take my GTD to in the new year.
