Will my car manufacturer carry out a remap for me?
A single vehicle type will be sold across multiple areas of the world. With each area manufacturers are subject to a different set of acceptance rules. Regulations include those surrounding tax and of course, emissions. Along with these factors, climates need to be taken into consideration. Regulations depend upon how hot or cold a country may be, humidity levels, fuel quantities and operating altitudes. Each of these factors has to be taken heavily into consideration by manufacturers and so they will not carry out a remapping service.
