    Has Anyone used DMS Southampton for a remap on XFR 2013/2014/2015

    Hi everyone, my other half it's considering having his Jaguar XFR remapped by DMS in Southampton. Any feedback would be most grateful before we proceed. I have read many positive reviews but nothing on a XFR. So if anyone out there can help. We would be most grateful.

    Yep very easy.

    Plug in device to OBD port, read std map. Send to viezu, get a modified map, upload to vehicle.

    Revert to standard at any time.

    Sounds brilliant. Roughly about 500 quid for 2 maps is it?

    How much of a difference did you notice and can you inform Viezu what else you have done in the car for them to tailor it slightly?

    I've got K&N filters, Exhaust mods and an upper pulley. They wrote the map to tailor based on this.

    I only got one map as it was cheaper, and knew I wouldn't switch much.. Id like a dyno chart to compare before and after but the torque increase was massive. In 4th it feels like 3rd gear as standard. It pulls hard at 2500rpm and just keeps building.

    Takes some care to drive in the rain/cold. Kick down can light up the tyres at 70mph!

    Important to note that Viezu are the UKs biggest tuning company and provide maps for many tuners internationally. They have been very professional in the dealings I've had...

    Welcome aboard Mary

    I had my XFR remapped and had the speedlimiter removed on my then brand new MY13 car.

    Can't really say anymore, 'it does what it says on the tin' a very smooth map and never had any issues, they also state they will upload the map foc should any dealer reflash the software
