Love island 2018 star Alex Miller was the latest customer to visit the TDI-Tuning Chelmsford headquarters. He brought along his Mercedes C220, a car that produces fantastic results when combined with a TDI-Tuning Box. The benefits of a TDI-Tuning box can be felt immediately. The system connects to the car using two engine sensors to ensure the power transition is smooth and reliable. The TDI-Tuning system comes packed with 7 map variants to guarantee harmonious power delivery in any situation. Competitors of the C220 include the BMW 3 series and the Audi A4. The sleek Mercedes performs exceedingly well amongst all its rivals. It certainly stands out from the rest of the pack, supporting a stylish grill and a beautiful media screen to compliment the interior. The TDI-Tuning Box increases MPG to work alongside the BlueEFFICIENCY and stop-start systems. Being able to achieve MPG whilst improving performance seems like an impossible feat. The extra torque if used in an economical way means the engine utilises the additional power to decrease the overall load on the engine over a set period of time. It really is possible to achieve up to 20% improved fuel economy with a TDI-Tuning box.

So economy isn’t your thing? The tuning box unleashes the full potential of the engine without overwriting any manufacturer defined safety settings. Traction control and gearbox limitations are never fiddled with, the power works within the parameters set. So you can plant your foot down with the assurance that the power delivery will be safe and reliable every single time. The power output of this Mercedes is increased by 32% over standard. Surpassing the C250’s engine power that sits at 202BHP.

A huge benefit while using a TDI-Tuning Box is that consumers can close the gap between model variants with the same engine. The engines within a model's range are de-tuned to comply with legislation and to ensure the manufacturers can profit on offering upgrades without the need to develop a brand new engine. This Mercedes C220 is a classic example of this, with artificial limits on power across the range. The tuning box is a great way to achieve maximum levels of power from any given engine. Alex was very happy to have his tuning box installed by our technicians who demonstrated exactly how the tuning box works at the same time. He was specifically interested in having the ability to revert the car back to standard without any hassle or complications. The extra power is welcome and ensures the engine performs as Mercedes originally intended it to.

The Bluetooth enabled tuning box allows customers to flick through the 7 different map variants at the click of a button. This feature is especially useful if you want to change the power output or turn the system on/off without having to open the bonnet.
