There is now no need to keep going up and down the box at lower speeds as the engine is very
torquey and sixth gear can be held until 40 mph before there is a need to change down.
I have played with the settings between 3 and 6 and found that number 6 was best for me, and my MPG according to the instant readout is higher than before fitting the box but i think this could be due to the box fooling the signal sent to the MPG calculator so i will do the brim to brim tank test to see if my MPG has improved.
So all in all i am very pleased with the results that this box has given me and the first class service that i got from roverron.

Where does the box plug in? Is it to the sensor connector on the fuel rail?
Also, how is the drivability, especially in town?
I had a tuning box on my old Passat PD130, the extra grunt was nice and economy stayed the same but it made the throttle response VERY sensitive, especially at light throttle (i.e. in town). It meant you had to be really gentle to avoid driveline 'shunt'.

My MK4 is a lease car with company insurance so I am reluctant to install, but have no quarms with the product as supplied for the Rover.
