    Just been reading up on remapping, seems like mostly people with the diesel engines benefit more than petrol. I have a 2011 Megane 1.6 Petrol but looking around it seems like you can only achieve roughly +7 BHP difference and +8 lb/ft of torque. Compared to a 1.5Dci which seems to be able to get...

    The 1.6 VVT in our 2011 car is very flat between 1-2 and 2-3, have to rev very hard to maintain any progress otherwise changing up drops the power right off, especially up any sort of gradient.

    Hello, I have started to do alot my miles on my 2011 clio 1.5DCI now that I have a new job which is a 60mile round commute pretty much all motorway driving. Going to get it serviced next month by and I am wondering if its worth getting the EGR cleaned as preventative maintenance? cheers
  9. Clio

  10. Other makes
    Are Saab's worth owning now as they can be picked up for next to nothing mostly due to being a defunct make is servicing and parts still easily obtained for models such as the 9-3 or 9-5? were or are they considered luxury cars?
