Just about to buy a Speedparts ECU w/ the refundable deposit.
My question is that how much would a standard (2nd hand or new)ECU cost incase of remapped ECU failure?

If it is too much, then they can keep the deposit and I have a spare ECU!!

Thanks in advance!!!!!!!!!!!

Scotty I got one via ebay for about £25 but it needs to be Tech 2'd to the car to work, which of course the original one doesn't, I'm sure its a simple and relatively cheap process but still adds a cost to a second hand unit to make it work as a spare

One of my upgraded ECU's did have a fault but you dont send yours back until you are happy (I think theres a reasonable time limit) so you should know if you have a problem with your new ECU (which is unlikely)

If you are concerned why not buy the PPC option and tune up and detune at your command?

I wouldn't worry too much about this - did consider doing it myself but Speedparts/BSR have been around a while now and so far I have not heard of any failures and there are a number of us here on the forum that are using them.

It was just a precationary measure incase of failure so I could still drive her
