  • Tempted with a used Blue Fin

    Seen this on ebay

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Vauxhall-bluef...item3a67e7bf0c

    Is it worth it or should I wait and get TMS to do it instead? I thought you have to pay around £200 to get it reset? Like the idea of being able to remove the map if needed but would prefer to pay TMS £400 and get a 3 year warranty and rolling road proof.

    Up to you but the price your paying you might aswell get TMS to do it for you and then it only come's on when you press the sports button i think but obviously when you sell then it would stay on. Have you not thought about a Dream-science hand held unit?

                The listing has a blatant lie in it, here it is: "This unit will need to be re-programmed by superchips them selves, i have just spoken to them and have been told its free of charge and can be done over the internet". Try £200 for a reset.

                The guy is trying to pull a fast one £240 plus another £200 to get it reset you might aswell buy a brand new one.

                  i,ve got one as well mate may be selling as a friend is doing a open day with a live map company and will in clued 3 runs on rollers and they map each car individually so will be better than a blue fin also going to be about £150 all in.his mates just had a 1.6 peugteo done and gone from 160bhp to 215bhp.my blue fin is good but think this is a better as all cars are different so a live map is for each car.

                      yea you have to pay to reset even if you are the original owner and want to sell it on.
