Re: Justice for the UK?

Manufacturers are quite happy to allow drivers to do illegal things with their vehicles, such as exceeding the speed limit and driving with bald tyres. Just because a manufacturer turns a blind eye to owners voiding the original type approval by not preventing chipping/remapping doesn't make it legal. Did you re-chip your vehicle after it reset the ECU, and if so, did you inform your vehicle insurer of the modification?
