So its down to the workshop that services and maintains your car to perform these updates, unfortunately the Vast Majority of independent garages don’t have the ability to carry out these updates and most Main Dealers in our experience don’t bother to carry out most updates routinely.
We have the same Diagnostic Equipment and the Franchised Dealers for most vehicle manufacturers and therefore can and do carry out software updates on a daily basis on our customers cars.
Remapping & Tuning
We also have the experience, equipment and more than 45 years experience in tuning vehicles by modifying the dealer installed software. Obviously tuning the latest vehciel manufactrers software will likely give a better performing and running vehicle than the software that was installed in the factory. This applies to Engine Ecu’s and Transmission Ecu’s or TCU’s
We have a huge range of hardware and software which is being constantly being updated and developed which allows us to remap and tune ecu’s via the OBD socket or directly onto the ecu connector in most vehicles, this avoids the need to open the ecu and risk any damage that can happen when opening a sealed ecu. Even TCU or Transmission Control Units can now be tuned via the OBD socket or directly to the electrical connector on the TCU or mechatronic unit.
