      Warrenty is a can of worms Issue. between ones who worry ones who don't and ones who would rather have a tuner warrenty than a vaux one...!

      if you looking to tune ring the tuners check out there warrenties how it ties in with your own warrenty, and pick the one you feel safest with, the closer to you is preferable as well as if it does go wrong you've not got far to go...

      Each tuner will have there followers just besure its your own decision don't be pushed into something you don't want or like or trust!

        They will always find an excuse and blame something so they dont have to pay out for warrenty.

        Yea a was the same as you about a year ago now ave just spent £700 this month on remap, anti-roll bar and air filter and stuff like that.

        Get used to/bored with the power you have from the car first then start doing a few mods to improve it. the do it yourself remap is good because if you have probs put std map back on before it goes for service or repairs at vx

          You'll soon get the hang of it, Buddy. I joined just over a month ago and up until then, I was just like yourself, ..didn't have a scooby what a RARB or a Remap was, ..now I've got a RARB and a panel filter fitted and am planning on a set of Eibach Pro springs next. You'll know all the jargon before long and have a yourself a fully modded VXR in no time!

                Tell me about it mate, I don't know if it's because it's a turbo'd car and it's my first turbo or what. Sometimes I read something on here and think "wtf does that mean?"

                Some one mentioned a RARB, is that some sort of anti roll bar?
