Rich mod ecu's Who wants there ecu modded?

Post by bkf_uk » Mon Jun 02, 2008 4:20 pm

Ok might not be the correct place for this post but was unsure where to place it!

Will be taking a trip to see rich on around the 21st of jun, as was said in a previous post im happy to collect ECU's that people want richmoded, and my 440T will be used to test them.

So if any one is intrested let me know.

Price from what rich has said to me in a pm will be around the £80 mark, this will cover postage back to you. (insured postage can be provivded at additional cost) and rich's costs.

So if you want yours done PM me and i'll let you know my contact details!

Regards
Bryan

Edit :- Incorrect price was stated, now ammened to correct price, due to me misinterpreting what had been said!

Just a quick one to let people know, im not willing to take DIRECT money tranfers (western union ect) just not keen on giving out my bank details!

sorry if this causes problems for people but i wish to protect myself from potential fraud! (i know you are probably all genuine, but have been stung in the past!)

However i will take paypal (much safer for everyone involved!)

too be honest, with the number of ecu's been taken down, it may take the entire weekend to do them, if you can get hold of another ecu (ask some of the other members) that would be your best bet. unfortunatly you havent put your location on your profile so cant say if it's going to be pushing it? you could always contact rich himself and organise to go down someother day with your car, im only going as my 440T is been used as the test bed for all the modded ecu's, if you can get hold of rich im sure you can make arrangments!

I'd have to leave around 2pm to get back in time. Any chance my ecu could get done as one of the first ones? How long does it take to get an ecu done?

Please don't PM me about ECU mods, I'll not answer.

Sorry, but please direct all standard ECU mod enquiry to this thread, or bkf_uk.

You can PM me about the super mod, and I'll try to reply as soon as possible.

Thanks

Sorry to say but at the moment im afraid to say im going to have to withdraw from offering this service. my inner cv joint has failed on my car and im unable to get hold of a replacement for a reasonable cost (volvo want £300 for a new one!) will let all know when the car is repaired. if however if the car is still off the road in 4 weeks time then i will have to say that it will be scrapped, as cost of repair is far more then the value of my 440 i just cant warrent spending £300 on a car i paid £100 for!
