2013 Holden Colorado Ltd

I’d like to thank the guys at Xtremetuning for the installation of a stage 1 performance remapping to my 2013 Holden Colorado Ltd Edition Extreme S.U.V. It’s a 2-wheel drive 6-speed auto. Before the chip, I found the turbo-lag a bit frustrating. Especially from a standing start. Also, when overtaking another vehicle from 80+ kph, the auto would scramble for gears that ran out of boost to soon, as the r.p.m rose above 3500. My concern was that once committed to an over-taking manoeuvre where there is only a small window of time to complete, I just didn’t have the confidence in my vehicle to execute with safety.
But now, with the chip? WOW! The turbo-lag is almost non-existant. Above 3500 rpm, especially in the higher gears, the engine keeps on pulling like a train. This is while going up hill on the Naraunga Gorge Wgtn, with a trailer filled with 550 kg of commercial roller garage door. Then having to brake hard upon realizing the rather high illegal speed incurred. I’m also glad my vehicle has traction control, as the warning light has become frequent part of my daily driving experience. Rather amusing with it off, wet ‘and’ dry. The only down side being my budget restraint on my rear tyres. So, thanks a lot guys at BRNO, Now I need a radar detector.

“Couldn’t ask for more. Dan and Bruno remapped my Prado and the power difference and smoothness of gear change is stunning. I had some issues with fuel consumption but the guys continued to work with me without hesitation and never once did I feel that they wouldn’t do everything in their power to sort the issue. Ends up the issue isn’t at all related to the remapping but they even went to the XTREME to diagnose it and I now know the issue is mechanical. Above and beyond guys! Thanks so much. Rick”

“The Boys re-maped my work ute (09 Landcruiser V8 flat deck) last week. Very happy with the results, took it on a run yesterday and where I’d normally drop down to 3rd gear in places to climb hill’s, smashed my way up in 5th with the tune and only drop back to 3rd twice on the run and that was to slow down for a couple of tight corners. Very happy with the results, Pull’s like a school boy now!”

“Bruno has just re-maped my Audi 2007 S6 Avant and I am very pleased with the extra HP I have gained. The car is a lot more responsive and noticeably quicker with the gear changes also a lot smoother. I have also noticed fuel efficiency has not been compromised and after just driving nearly 1,000km is actually better. I have found the power increase of approx 10% well worth while with over taking a lot quicker and safer – not that the V10 had any real problems ! Highly recommend to all”

“To be honest, I was a bit disappointed when my GTI first came back.. something seemed to be missing. After a quick text to Dan, the guys came out to my place on a Sunday night and remapped to ECU again with the promise to follow up on Monday with their super extreme remap if that little something still wasn’t there. Super extreme remap, yes please.Needless to say, the GTI’s gone nuts! Someone should tell it it isn’t an R.”

It’s the whole package from wide power bands to super sharp shifts but their best attributes are attention to detail and communication top notch:) I can’t believe you guys extracted that much power from diesels!! Keep up the great work and anybody thinking of doing this DON’T THINK JUST DO IT!! You won’t be disappointed….”

2005 Land Rover Disco3 2.7 TDi

“Hey. We have a 2005 LR Disco3 2.7 and a 2011 Ford Transit 2.4 in our business. Both vehicle are turbodiesels and by factory these are so sluggish. We tow a 2 tonne and a 3 tonne food trailer every day and most of the time there’s a queue builds up behind us which is it’s so embarrassing. We got the Xtreme chiptuning guys to remap the V6 Landy first and wow… the difference is huge! It’s a totally different vehicle now, it really feels like a V6 diesel. The 2nd, 3rd and 4th gear are just unbelievable, the vehicle goes up on hills so effortlessly. After seeing the results on the Landy we wanted to get the Transit done immediately, no questions asked. We had to wait 3 days to get this second tuning done as the boys just couldn’t find us an empty slot – geez, these guys are busy. They found us a spot on the 3rd day, they came onsite, did their magic on fancy laptops in an hour and DONE. Again, can’t believe the difference. Boys, thanks for your work, well worth the money. Prompt comms, quality european service, everything was just is like a dream. Top notch service, five stars. Thanks again.”

2007 Land Rover Defender 110 TD5

“I had the boys remap my beloved Defender few weekends back and I still get all giddy every time I jump into the truck. The truck is a lot smoother to drive especially transitioning across all gears. Amazing power delivery in 2nd and 3rd -my fav and most surprising improvement. I can take off from stationary that much quicker off the mark and pull out of corners that much smoother. High gears are sweet on motorway with plenty of overtaking juice. The new driving experience feels like thats what the Defenders ought to be…straight out of factory. Totally stoked with the choice to have it remapped and great bunch of guys to get the job done right! I fell in love with the truck all over again.”

“Have had a great couple of days dealing with Brno from Xtremetuning. I contacted him via email in regards to sprucing up my MKV Golf GTI. He has been extremely detailed in his responses to my million questions and always given a very honest and clear explanation. I’ve had the car back for less than 24 hours and each time I’ve jumped behind the wheel I’ve been really impressed with how responsive the throttle is now and the pull generated down low. Looks like I’m asking Santa for a radar for Xmas! Thanks again to Brno and the team.”

The second, third and fourth gears are unbelievable, the suv just pulls and pulls without wanting to stop. FINALLY I got the diesel power. I need you to send me a speed radar detector now haha.The current measures shows 2.5 litre drop in fuel as well which I’ll monitor for few more weeks but it certainly looking promising. Good teamwork, fun people and prompt delivery. Couldn’t ask for more.”

Definitely recommend these guys, as they were very professional, and explained the technical details of what was going on in a language I can understand.

2009 Kia Sorento 2.5 CRDi

“Had my 2009 Sorento auto remapped yesterday. Immediately noticed the improved acceleration and better gear changes. Towed the caravan today about 30km in both 50km and 100km zones. No doubt the torque is up. Pulled effortlessly right through the range. Don’t know if it’s my imagine but when manually changing the selection seems more positive and quicker. Before they seemed to ride through. Without towing the motor is clearly more willing at higher speeds. Won’t say exactly how high but very happy. Noticed under heavy acceleration the black plume out the back is missing. Will report in on fuel usage in due course. Thanks guys.”

More power in every aspect, smoother through the gears and more economical in town and on the open road. I tow a bit too and it tows even better now than it already did, especially taking off with a heavy load or climbing hills with a heavy load. the last couple of days I have been driving a standard 14 Ranger and it has made me realise just how impressive my car actually is now. the two vehicles were not even comparable. thanks very much for great service and a great result!”

“Great and friendly service and the map took no time at all to load! Had my Polo GTi remapped on Saturday and immediately took her for a drive through the Rimutakas and boy oh boy was it amazing. Torque increase was the most noticeable and the quicker spool from a lower RPM meant the car never struggled at any point. I’ve had several cars remapped but never has the map been so smooth and there are no flat spots, and cold starts go off without a hitch. Really happy with the results and experience thanks to Brno.”

2004 Mercedes E55 AMG

“A stock E55 is a good car – blew my socks off the first time I drove one ‘in anger’. But now it’s gone from a wolf in sheep’s clothing to a banshee in a wolf suit.
Over the years a few horses had escaped the paddock, so when Brno showed we only had 440hp left I thought well, there you are. Our target was to break the magic 500hp number, and pick up a few more torques along the way.
The car now is almost frightening.
Before Brno got his hands on it, I’d tweaked the exhaust, air intakes, supercharger belts, and some minor bits and pieces. We both researched online, and decided to throw in a supercharger pulley upgrade, to make sure we got 500 across the line. Stock torque is about 700nm, so obviously that was expected to increase.
The final outcome has been epic. 560hp and a touch under 900nm of torque.
She eats hills and spits them out, stretches and asks for more. Lag is almost completely gone, and a car that used to pause a bit before launch now launches even before you’ve finished pressing the accelerator.
This is still a 4 door that’s tractable around town (ok, a little twitchy in parking buildings) and you can burble down to the shops. But show her a motorway on-ramp and time stops while you move from here to there in a heartbeat. Off to the track shortly to explore what flat-out now looks like. We had a few hiccups till it all came together, but it’s been worth the wait – we’ve got the X in Xtremetuning!”

2013 Range Rover Evoque SD4

“Got to say a huge thank you to Brno. What a star he is. I mucked him around a bit on the timing of getting this done as once I forgot and the second time there was a death in our family but he was always so understanding.

Then when I finally get the tune done, I’m not sure what I was expecting……. having owned some big HP cars (R34 GTR, 996 911 etc) I know what can and can’t be done with a tune, but he did an amazing job. Flattened out the power delivery so it wasn’t so lumpy, more power overall, much better throttle response from the stupid e-throttle setup on this car and most of all dropped the average fuel use from between 10.2-11.0L per 100kms down to less than 8L per 100kms on the first tank through it………………….

Can’t recommend Brno and X-treme Tuning enough….. happy to talk to anyone about my experience or take people for a drive.”

2003 BMW X5

“To whom it may concern,

 We have contacted Sheldon from First Class European Ltd about a performance upgrade on our company owned BMW X5 SUV and we discussed options with them in details. Our ultimate goal was to achieve the following:

  1. better fuel consumption
  2. deeper engine sound
  3. better performance overall

Since this request didn’t only require modifying parts of the vehicle but it also involved a software upgrade Sheldon brought Xtremetuning Ltd into the project, a team that is specialized in ECU remapping. We knew we are talking to the right guys once we started to see these people consulting with us regularly, paying attention to the details and giving us an affordable STAGE II tuning proposal that included some mechanical modification by First Class European Ltd and an ECU remapping by Xtremetuning Ltd. We accepted the quotation and they started to work…

We have been impressed how these guys can work together to reach the common goal. While one of them was re-building our BMW mechanically the other party put some sugar coating on by syncing the modified hardware components in the ECU map files. It was quite exciting to see how they pulled the vehicle apart and built it up again. Once we got the SUV back we started to use it and we are happy to confirm the following gains:

  • The SUV has a very smooth gear shift after the mods
  • previously we were able to travel from Wellington to Taupo by using 1 tank of fuel. Now we are able to reach Hamiton… BIG difference, it is the best fuel consumption we ever had on this vehicle.
  • Vehicle launches off the mark much quicker. The torque gains is quite noticeable, but it also producing heaps more HP as it runs up the hill and it feels so effortless.
  • Nice exhaust sound, loving it!

 Based on our experience we highly recommend these garages to anyone who’s interested in some serious gains in their vehicles. Thank you Sheldon and Brno!”
