Star Performance..... great service, done all my servicing and mod's can't fault this family run team.
Found out that the alternator was done £260 been a hard monthtrev said:Had the car mot'ed yesterday and it passed always glad to get the call to pick it up
but on the way home the battery light came on and the esp light and the dash lights began to dim, Got home and switched it off to find the battery was dead as a dodo, phoned jim and he said he would send Brian round in the morning with a new battery and see if that was the problem which it was dont think many garages would give you that kind of service,
anyway thumbs up for star for a great service long my it last

Finally got my remap and decided that whilst it was in at Dr Jim's that I'd get treated to Variant 1s and cruise control .. and absolutely no regrets 8) First class work and customer service!
Doesn't sound like jim to me. He's been nothing but helpfull with an questions I've had in the past. I also don't see him saying you would get the bhp your quoting on the rolling road unless your car is knackered. Sounds like you phoned the local chipy by accident... There is a jim that works therebodyart said:After reading the reviews on here I contacted these guys a month or two ago about a remap and i gotta say i wasnt impressed really. The guy i spoke to (Jim i think he said) seemed entirely disinterested in answering any queries about the different stuff available. Even going so far as slating some of the other big firms maps in favour of his "own" map.
Then he told me i should only expect 140bhp ish on his dyno from a 225 TT! sorry guys, but as a novice i cant see how when everyone else gets more realistic figures on their dyno's. I was left with the impression that the guy either had a F**ked dyno or didnt know how to set it up properly to get right readings - Which seems entirely at odds with what the users are saying on here who all rate Star performance pretty highly - and i dont doubt for one minute any of you have had excellent service from them
maybe i caught him on a bad day (it was a friday!) maybe i misinterpreted what he was saying, maybe he just couldnt be bothered with answering questions from a newbie who just wanted some reassurance he was doing the right thing but it was the general level of disinterest when i was gonna part with hard earned cash that put me off in the end, even if his map was half the price of the competition, if you dont have confidence in the guy doin the job it aint a bargain is it?
In the end i got a trial map from elsewhere to try, and am about to part with cash for the full map shortly. Would rather have gone to Star performance because they are fairly local but i dont know anyone who has had it, and he didnt offer any testimonials either, pity really.
I will maybe give them another try when i am looking for something next time, everyone deserves a second chance i would say - i would be interested in hearing from anyone who has Star's own re-map to see how they rate it
