VW Golf  7 2.0 TDI 110kW “Thanks for tuning my Golf last friday, these are my thoughts after driving back to Nelson from Ashburton yesterday. When I first picked up the car the motor felt smoother and gear changes were even crisper. When I drove Nelson to Chch on friday the fuel consumption was 6.5l/100km. Admitably this was cruising mostly between 100-120kph. On the return 500km trip after the chip tune, mostly travelling 100-110 kph, the fuel consumption averaged an impressive 5.3l/100km, with an extra person and more luggage on board. Also noticeable was how little throttle was required at cruising speed. As you mentioned, when overtaking flicking the gear lever back to sport, the real world overtaking acceleration between 80kph to 130kph plus is greatly improved. So, overall, I'm very happy with the result. Also, we are considering replacing my wife's Ford Territory, which is her tow vehicle for horse float, our boat etc, and have been thinking of a VW Touareg which also has a 3 tonne tow capacity. Do the 3l diesel versions of these respond well to the chip tuning too? regardsMurray”

Jeep Grand Cherokee 3.0 CRD “I had the chip on my 2014 Diesel Grand Cherokee remapped by Auto passion late last year.  I would like to express my thanks for the work that was done. The vehicle was great before the chip mods, however the upgrade has truly unleashed an absolute Tsunami of torque that has increased the driving pleasure noticeably.  On top of that, the economy is almost unbelievable.  On a long open road trip I have often seen sub 7 litres per 100km.    Typical figures would be in the very low 7s.   This gives me better than 1100km between fill ups.  Overtaking is more effortless than my previous V8 petrol Jeep. Thanks again, from a very happy customer. “

BMW X3 20d 130kW “pulls strong over the whole rev range. Well done mate. Tk u”

VW Golf 2.0 TDI Mk7 “the car drives fantastic thanks. Such a big difference in pick up, torque and throttle response. Thanks, Vance”

VW Golf 2.0 TDI “Just lettong you know I have had the golf going for a coulple of weeks after the remap you did for me. Awsome with DPF delete. No fault lights or regen issues. The performance is great. The accelartion is impressive with only a tiny bit of accelarator pedal applied and the car is up to 100k before you know it.”

Audi Allroad 2.7T “Good to finally meet you. Thanks alot for fitting me in under restricted time which I know is a real pain (having to do myself everyday). The audi drove great and there was a noticeable power increase for sure.  Thanks Again Mike”

Mercedes E300 turbo “Just letting you know car us going real well. Thanks for the tune. Kind regards, Gavin”

Ford Ranger 3.2 XLT “I have  received the ECU and installed it, it runs great, would I be able to get a receipt off you for the work completed.”

VW Amarok 2.0 BiTDI “Thank you for the invoice and for your work on the Amarok.………….it goes really good now. I now understand what you mean by ‘across all revs’ the engine certainly maintains power through all revs where as it would lag after 3k revs. 2nd gear is a real kicker at 2.5k revs then 3rd. I can now over take safely on 5th and sometime 6th. Went up Mt Hutt 2 weeks back and noticed that 2nd gear is too low uphill as the speed limit is 40km/hr up had to change up to 3rd gear and cruises fine but you're right it needs to be revving at 2.5k. Overall it is a noticeable improvement.”

Audi Q7 3.0 TDI “Audi goes great thank you once again”

BMW 335i “thanks for a job well done on the 335i yesterday. My expectations fully met as the car has certainly ‘come alive’ with its new found power. Totally worth the outlay in my opinion…feel free to use this as an endorsement too if you like. Cheers, Ross”

Fiat Ducato 2.8 JTD “Had a good chance to try the van out coming home today.  You are right, still not exactly a Greyhound but a marked improvement in pulling power at the higher end. Would actually pull away in fifth from about 1750rpm (75kph) whereas before, if it dropped below 2000rpm (90kph) then that's where it stayed necessitating a change down to 4th and up to about 3000rpm before changing back into 5th.

Still had to change down to 2nd near the top of Porters Pass at about the same place as previously but wasn't pushing 3rd and that's a decent climb.

Between Otira and Kumara, probably did about a 10th of the gear changes that I would have done, comfortably sat at 90 in 5th over gentle rises that it would not have done before.

We have comparative fuel records for litres/k from Windwhistle to Kumara (both McKeown fuel stops) and actually used 1 litre more today than last trip but then that can be dependant on load etc. Early days.

Overall, very happy with the result, a much easier relaxing van to drive altogether. Thanks for everything.”

Ford Territory “All is well…is now doing 8.3L per 100km average, was 10.3 before, representing 20% fuel savings. Criminal manufacturers do this to tick the NOX box really. A very different vehicle all round, cheers, John.”

Audi Q7 4.2 TDI 250kW “You might get a call from a couple of mates; one has a new Ranger and the other a Q7. So happy with mine, thanks, Greg”

BMW 320d F30 “I have been meaning to give you some feedback on the excellent job you did re-mapping my white BMW 320d touring back in April. It has really transformed the car - the engine is considerably quieter, smoother, more responsive, and of course has noticeably more power and torque. I have also noticed the long term fuel consumption has decreased by about 0.4l/100k, despite the motor being easier to rev and the power more accessible. All in all a very worthwhile upgrade, and one I would definitely recommend to any other 320d owners.”

Audi Q7 3.0 TDI 180kW “Pleasantly surprised and very happy at the increase in performance. Much more responsive throughout the full rpm range.”

VW Scirocco R “I quite like the tune. It’s very smooth and has good power. Fuel saving seems pretty good too. Doing about 6.5-7L/100km driving normally. When I used to pin it I would get 16-18L/100km. Pinned it this morning and doing 12.2-13.2L/100km when going hard. That’s pretty good”

BMW X5 40d “I have recently sold the E70 X5  40d you tuned for me 4 years ago, replaced it with a F16 X6 M50d, After driving the X6 with its 280kw and 740 nm I must say what a great job you did on the X5, Although the X6 is smother and a bit stronger ,the old X5 would not be Far behind, Just for your information , Cheers Steve

Audi A6 3.0 TDI 150kW “It goes gr8, many thanks”.

Skoda Yeti 2.0 TDI 125kW “A quick report now that I'm back in Golden Bay. In summary all going very well.

Ford Ranger 3.2 Wildtrack 2017 “Thank you very much. As for the my truck I am very very! Pleased with the power gained, it really gets up and go now thank you so much. I must admit that was money well spent   Very appreciated, Thank you so much. Regards, Alfred”

Skoda Octavia & VW Touareg “all my recent motors were also pretty good anyway but got even better after a visit to your place!”

Porsche Boxster 2.5 “took Boxster out for a short drive as it was dry today. Running very smoothly as you said, pulls up to redline well. Seems stronger over the last 2000 revs… oh and it pulls away better from standstill when driving “normally”. Improved torque?”

BMW 328Ci “I have been testing my dark blue BMW 328ci under various conditions that i'm familiar, i can feel that extra push it gives, it has made my slow car a little more bearable.

Fiat Bravo 1.4T T-Jet “So far haven't got a speeding ticket. What a difference in performance.”

Audi S6 V10 5.2 “Have now had a chance to drive the car in a few different situations... feedback as follows:

  • Combination of the ECU remap and the Gearbox recalibration makes the car much more driveable - to the extent that I woudl describe it as performing as Audi should have tuned it from the factory.
  • Gearbox re-calibration has resulted in the gearbox an in turn the car being far mmore responsive when driven in Auto and especially so when using the manual mode.
  • Generally much better response and torque in D mode
  • Considerably more "snappy" in S and Manual mode, much more fun

Nice work... I'll be back in touch when ready for the exhaust fitting.”

Kia Proceed GT 1.6 turbo “A sincere thank you again for making my life happier with what you did with the Kia”

VW Touareg 5.0 TDI V10 “took touareg for proper drive today. 200km/hr up brooksdale straight the long slightly uphill straight before porters pass. then up the hill it was amazing just doing 2000 revs often able to sit in 5th gear and still hold 100km then on steepest bit at top past a truck from doing about 15km/hr and by the top 200m later I was almost doing 100km again. then on the gravel ski field road handled amazing with a great balance between traction and wheel spinning.”

Mercedes Benz ML320 CDI “I am extremely happy, it pulls like a train just one question I have, is it worth disabling the EGR on these engines, can it be done and is there any advantage to doing so?”

Audi TT 1.8T 225 “Took the car out for a good thrash today and the overall response is remarkable.  Noticeably more lower end torque now, but where everything really shines is from the mid-range (3500 rpm) and up.  Incredible pull and very smooth.  So all is good and I think that’s going to do it for now.  As always, many thanks for everything. Regards, Tom”

VW Passat R36 “Thank you. I can certainly feel a difference, feels like the power is more available earlier on. Actually feels quite different to drive as the throttle is a lot touchier now.

It feels like the turbo has suddenly started working and I have to use a bit more control to avoid the tyres slipping in first AND second gear. The chirping noise seems to be resolved as well. Very fun. Thank you so much for your help and recommendations – I’ll check in in a month or so for a rescan.

Jeep Grand Cherokee 3.0 CRD 2017 “I honestly didn't know what to expect but "silky" is how I'd describe the Jeep now.  I notice it just seems to effortlessly glide along at 50Kph and 100Kph and also quieter as if the engine is just idling. I love it.  And when I do give it some gas it just pulls and pulls with a very refined engine sound.  I don't listen to radio any more, I enjoy and grin inwardly at the silence and also when she rumbles.   

You're right, no need for an after-market muffler. There was a delay in throttle response when moving off from stopped. But this has now gone and the response is immediate. I also noticed a drop in fuel consumption. I am a happy man. Thank you, Vishan”

Audi RS3 “Hi, I’m enjoying the tune, thanks”

BMW 125i 2.0 twin turbo F21 “I’m completely amazed the car is transformed, thank you for your effort”

Kia Proceed GT 1.6 Turbo “I trust this finds you in good health and spirits. This is just a follow up regarding the tuning you performed on my Kia Proceed GT. In short I'm loving it and my only gripe is the Wellington traffic that doesn't always allow me to press my right foot down as much as I now like to as the pick up (especially now in 2nd and 3rd gears) is appreciably greater and always puts a smile on my face. If (as I'm now enjoying the Kia way more than I used to) and when I get another car I'll be coming back to you for your magic touch.” 

Citroen DS4 1.6 THP “this is awesome I love it, cheers.”

Audi A4 1.8T quattro “Very much enjoying the extra performance so far with the tune up, might not get it back from my wife yet. Cheers”

Jeep Grand Cherokee 3.0 CRD “drives very well”

BMW 325d E90 “I am delighted with the results of the power tune and DPF removal. The car feels like its gained another couple of cylinders! The power seems to feed in earlier in the rev range and the turbo surge just keeps going. This ECU tune along with the manual gearbox makes for one heck of a diesel car. Thank you very much for your service.”

Almost feel that she is intuitive to my whims. The joy of driving has never been better. I feel like an 16 year old on his first hot date and she keeps giving me more with each new encounter. Jacqui and I had a wonderful road trip home. So much so that Jacqui wants her 1.8T re-mapped too. Just has to make up her mind if she wants to keep the A4 or change to a TT. Apart from the very willing power and pulling torque my car's fuel consumption has gone from an average of 8.5 lt/100km before the re map to 7.4 on the trip home.

Am I suppose to, or its just in my mind? 3) Throttle response also improved to almost the same as my manual carburetor car. 4) The engine harshness has decreased quite significantly.

Saab 9-5 2.0T - “Remember chipping my Saab 9-5 in Petone?

I thought Chiptuning NZ were very professional. You listened to me and answered all my questions. The car is running perfectly... (I was a bit worried that being an older car something might have gone wrong). The chip tune definitely produced a noticeable increase in power and acceleration... what I can say is when you  hit the "sport" mode on the Saab 9-5 auto gear shift and do some spirited driving the tuning really kicks in - it's really noticeable, in fact it's so fast now it's scary! So next time you do a Saab with auto transmission tell the customer to put it in Sport mode and floor the accelerator they will be very impressed - that alone makes it worth the cost of the tune and more.

Also I'd like to thank you for the advice on having an auto transmission service. I had that done a couple of days later and you were right the gear shifts are greatly improved.

I'd recommend you to others and in fact have done so."

BMW M3 E46 - “the improvement is instantly noticeable and the more you rev it the harder it goes. Well worth doing”.
