Just downloaded my bluefin to the car, wow it's turned in to a little monster now!!

On the cusp of purchasing. Has it really made that much difference? Where do you feel it most?

Only done a few mile with it on to get to work, but you can feel it all the way through the gears, especially on overtaking, I think it's about an extra 44bhp which is like driving a different car, I was not expecting such a difference! Really happy with it at the moment but will need to put more miles on it first.

I'm tempted by bluefin too  :evil:

How much did you pay for the unit and how much was the software?

Yes all in very happy! But only done about 4 miles with it so far but very impressed with it so far, was saving up for the rear LEDs but thought this was too good to miss out on!

Looks like I'm not the only one with sagging sound deadening hanging off the bonnet.  Mine has gone in the same place  :sad:  have to replace it soon....

I bluefin'd my car at about 6 or 8 weeks old and with about 700 miles on the clock and loved it.

Very smooth OEM power delivery - just more of it everywhere but not so aggressive or unrefined to spoil the car.

Superchips customer service is superb and it literally takes 5mins to revert from standard to tuned map.

I would have left it on but my wife has taken on my car and she doesn't want any mods so I decided to sell alot of stuff.

I paid £400 and thought it was well worth it.

If I were buying about her VAG car I would keep the handset but doubt I will any time soon so might as well sell it.
