+60bhp

30bhp and upto 60bhp tuning chip.
For £15.
Must be on Ebay, then?
Correct. :thumbsup:

It's a chip (of the silly cone variety), in a box, and 2 wires. Got to work? Hasn't it? No one would be trying to rip us off? Would they? Especially not on Ebay?
But...
Before I spend my hard-earned beer money, thought I would ask Forum members their opinion. Seems plausible; 135bhp in my van for £15. And free postage!
And he does have 28,000+ feedbacks and 99.9% of them positive. Confusedtudy:

Take note that the chip is the only electronic component on the circuit board. And I use the term circuit board very, very loosely.

One of the neutral feedbacks states there was a resistor under the non functioning chip.

At that price I would get two of them and gain 120BHP Smile Smile

Think the majority of us on here are far too savvy to fall for 'snake oil' salesmen.
Makes you wonder who falls for these ads?

Well....
He has sold 32 Citroen ones and 117 Volvo ones!!!
Gullible Volvo drivers? Confusedillyme:

Oh, and yes, you can still buy Snake Oil.

I've seen this kind of thing before - AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE

1. Asks to send feedback that it has arrived (if it arrives quickly, then most people will leave positive feedback)
2. When the unit does't work, the buyer can send it back for a full refund (the seller does indeed give the buyer his money back, so will probably get positive feedback because of that)
3. As it's only £15, some people may not bother to spend the time to send it back, complain etc, so the seller gets to keep the £15
4. If 1000 people buy the device and 800 of them take the time to send it back and get a refund, that leaves 200 people who didn't bother, meaning the seller has just made £3000 on a device that doesn't work

It's a classic scam and a case of 'how many numbers' don't ask for a refund

Most people won't give negative feedback if they get their money back

Some of his messages to the neutral and negative feedback messages are funny though
"My 5 year old Quadraplegic deaf dumb blind comatosed daughter grew these fine"

He also seems to be selling packs of seeds that contain just dust

I fitted two and now my car does 0 to 60 in under 3 seconds and I have to drain some fuel out of the tank every 400 miles it's so economical. I bought 3 and gave a friend the free one but he can't see any difference. I think it must work on faith like aeroplanes (if all the people on board lose faith in the plane's power of flight the plane crashes)
So where does this bit go then ?
