One thing puzzles me about these performance/economy mods, if they really are THAT good, why don't the manufacturers fit them as standard ?

So is this the same type of thing as what you have fitted ?
Couldn't you supply one for Jukie ?

Many do, but only on their demonstrator cars!
This has been discussed before, but basically manufacturers build their cars to a price and spec. They are chipping the cars with the latest range of engines, I believe the same 1.8 litre engine is used in the C180, C200, C230 etc, just tuned and tweaked to different levels.
They want the customer to pay the £K's extra between a 220Cdi, 270CDi and 320CDi, but you can get the 220CDi upto the power of the 270 and the 270 upto the 320 for a few hundred pounds.
At the end of the day it is all very clever marketing and we all fall for it. [/B]
