    I've recently got a MY01 (X Plate) 9-3 FPT as a run around and I just wondered if there's anyway that you can tell if it's already been chipped as it seems to have a bit more go than I would have expected from a 185BHP car. I used to have a scooby and it is easily as quick once it gets going...

    My YM2000 2.0lpt SE seems quicker than the last one. Is it just because its 2 years and 40K younger i wonder? Anyone know how to check whether the ECU is still standard or not?

    Just about to buy a 2.2 TiD estate. I know the engine is renowned for being a bit "agricultural" on start up, but looks to be pretty reliable compared with the 3.0 TiD. Has anyone chipped their 2.2 TiD? I am looking for a power increase to about 145bhp. What experiences have you had...

    Hello everyone, I have just joined the site, and I was looking for some information on chipping my 2000 w-reg 9-3 LPT, I've read it can take the performance up from the standard 154bhp to circa 200bhp ( the output from the HOT model ?). Questions ; 1)Has anyone out there upgraded the ECU on...

    ... my new purchase, that is. When I had it serviced last week I asked them to give it a rub over with the "mop", with the result that at least it's no longer faded - and actually rather shiny. Alas the haircut has also taken off a lot of the touch-up paint which has left various panels...

    Hi Everyone, I've beening running mt 02 Aero for a few months now and really like it but would like a bit more power. Was thinking Speedparts Stage 1. Has onyone here gone from a standard Aero to a chipped one and if so what are your thoughts on the differences? How much did fuel consumption...

    I was considering the options of havng my 2004 93ss 1.9 tdi chipped. It's a 120 & I think a chip adds another 30bhp. Also does anyone know if the chip is what makes the difference between the 120 & 150 production engines.....just curious!

    I have just (this lunch-time) had a quick blast in a 9-3ss conv. - the same car I drove a few weeks ago as a standard 175bhp. It's now had the Elk Parts chip power upgrade, and to get to the point: It's much better. All the usual observations about 9-3ss's apply - particularly the 'it's too...

    It is insurance renewal time for as yet standard 2001 9-3 2.0 LPT SE Auto, as soon as I mention the mere thought of chipping the car with a Maptun ECU to 225bhp the insurance quote rockets to nearly 50% more than the standard quote. I'm currently with Direct Line, they want £225 more, I have...

    I got a fairly deep stone chip in my window fixed at Autoglass recently ( cost£65) I meant to ask how they do it but forgot , anyone know? , it looks invisible now. The other point was; my windscreen has a long , arcing scratch/scrape which aligns with one of the wiper blade support bracket...

    A stage 1 ECU upgrade to a 2.0lpt adds about 40% to the torque, but how far will the engine go before needing a rebuild? Who has the highest mileage in a car with a chipped but otherwise original engine?
