Both are ok to use, I believe that our own Doggy prefers the Galetto 1260 or it's what he has :wink:
Pro Steve at HDi-tuning.com favours the mpps ?

You could try sending Doggy a pm, always a very helpful & approachable chap :)

I've used mpps when remapping our passat, found it easy to use.

Thanks guys I was edging towards the mpps the one I was looking at says it comes with a load off maps for different cars I wouldn't use them personally but just for digging around in and learning, I'll get a mpps ordered tonight or tomorrow then at end of the month probably get myself a stage 1 map from hdi-tuning.

I wouldn't use the generic maps either. When I did our passat it was very straightforward, then the 3 of the most nerve racking minutes of my life where it says erasing flash :shock: then uploading the new file. I made a couple of backups of the original just in case things don't go to plan.

yeah definitely won't be using them. I have no idea how detailed ecusafe is but hoping I can pull maps from a few cars I have access to and just compare them to the supplied maps just to be nosy maybe learn a few things.

Hi guys my mpps arrived today got a few copies of my map off the car tried ecusafe 2 to remove egr done it all in the correct order but doesn't confirm at the bottom that it's removed the egr is that normal?

been slowly working my way through the engine issues just gotta get shot off egr and try to work out why my auto wipers only work when stationary or crawling in traffic as soon as I get above about 10mph bugger all they just stop wiping.
