SLK320 remap - Is it worth having it done?

I have searched the forum but no joy.


Is it worth having am SLK 320 remap? I understand the figures but still not really sure if it would be a really noticeable acceleration increase?


I was looking at buying a 230 - but this 320 just came up and its immaculate and its faster and I could remap it and then it would be even FASTER ...or would it?


Thanks in advance!

you can only make a car go so fast. If you searched (and my 1st slk was a 2002 320)
and didn't find anything legitimate, it is not worth it. Maybe that is why i am driving an AMG now

It's not worth it.. seriously. I have read a hundred threads on this subject. IMO the answer is no.

Thanks for PM's - I cannot reply via PM yet as new member.


Remap possibly more beneficial on a 230 than a 320...
