Our history and background
The history of Xtremetuning goes back to 2002 when it was first established in Europe. Back in time ECU chiptuning was quite different; tuners had to replace chips on the printed circuit board (PCB), burn EEPROM software and get heavily involved in some other risky stuff that most people wouldn’t touch at all. Surviving on that market, developing safe procedures and learn to operate without risk was quite a journey! In the later years the need of developing new communication protocols, drivers and OS for vehicles quickly came up to the top as well so we have been real busy in the past 10 years. Life isn’t all about work and income though hence migrating to NZ slowly but surely became a strong option. Xtremetuning NZ was established in 2012 when Brno thought it’s time to resurrect his European Motorsport Racing workshop here in New Zealand. The start wasn’t easy though. The fact that our market space wasn’t flooded with remapping companies also carried the risk of people not knowing what remapping means. While this challenge seems to be smaller and smaller we still have a long journey ahead of us. And we are looking forward to it.
The XTG Team
His background is computer software development with a business acumen. His passion is more around building customer relationships, providing service rather than a product, focusing on quality rather than quantity. His main goal is to prove that even car tuning companies can find their space in the 21st century by research & develop the youngest and most complex part of the power-train: the software. He established Xtremetuning here in New Zealand and brought the knowledge of remapping European vehicles with him.
He’s background is computer programming (started with C++ back in 2001).
When he’s not busy unleashing the beasts Dan’s mission is to share it all with you: insights, our feelings and experiences with the cars, and the fun of it all. His main front-line is our Facebook page, but he left his footprints all around our website, too. If you have feedback or suggestions about his articles, please email us.
He’s the Yoda of the group with a Bachelor’s Degree in Vehicle programming and a solid knowledge of all engines made in Asia. He shared a lot of insight and knowledge with the international tuning community. We keep him locked away in a safe place – he’s a real treasure…
