Question: I am looking to get my A5 Octavia Vrs remapped as i am told this will not affect manufacturers warrantee and a chip does. Is this true? What is the best upgade to the 2.0 FSIT engine? I have seen up to 265bhp 271ft/lb. Is this not a bit much?
Answer: Any attempt to modify the car won't be welcomed by Skoda. Remapping the flash chip is what most people do these days anyway. At least with Superchips they cover the manufacturers warranty to the extent of paying for any repairs, should Skoda decide they don't want to pay out if they find out it's been reflashed. check the site www.superchips.co.uk for details

Question: My speedo on my 2000 Peugeot 206 1.4 LX works intermittently reaching about 20mph and then falls to zero sometimes not moving away from zero at all. The rev counter has now also become very erratic although this problem is newer. Taken car to garage and mechanic thinks I might need a new dash but isn\'t sure. Any ideas greatly appreciated as don\'t want to pay out money if this isn\'t the problem. Thanks.
Answer: I wish I could help, but I can understand where your mechanic is coming from. there is a company called BBA Reman who repair dash assemblies, it may be worth trying them first.
