Pre-facelift remap - possible yes/no

Hi All

A few websites I've seen in the UK have a remap for the pre-facelift SLK230 increasing BHP from 193-223. Other websites say that there isn't a remap available and just to confuse even further, some say that a remap is available but with minimal BHP gains

Whats the real truth???

Looked a little further and I think I've found the answer. Looks like pre-facelift requires the chip in the ECU to be un-soldered, remapped and then soldered back to the ECU. Not sure if I'm happy with the ECU being taken apart

Found on the dcp tuning website. When I had a VW, this company was quite popular and I belive to be "in the know"
