Hi to you all.
We have had a 2005 Sportage 2.0 CRDTi Auto XS from newand brought it to France when we moved down here from Kent four years ago.
First 3 years it was serviced by KIA but since I have serviced it myself.
Done 50,000 miles now and been totally reliable with the only problem being the fuel consumption.
Over the last two years I have averaged 28.5 mpg.
I have recently installed this.

So far I have been very impressed! On the last tank we had 34 mpg in general running around and at a steady 60 mph the trip shows 40 mpg!! The engine is quieter and smoother so what's the catch?
Well its too early to see if I end up with engine problems long term but it should pay for itself in 6 months.
It looks like this box could turn a good car into a great one - time will
tell.


I am on other Kia forums and have only just discovered this one ( sorry) which looks really interesting!

I also have an Alfa 166 which I also run and service as a hobby car.

Best regards

Rob.

Hi and welcome...are you bww on other forums? I`ll keep an eye out.


Great news on the tuning box, very tempted for myself as a few have been purchased by members on `another site`, just waiting for more feedback especially from the chap with the same model and engine as myself.
