Hi Bad boy, but what's this I hear about remapping invalidating the insurance or is that just in the event of a claim, when I suppose you could take it off when the assessor calls round!

That is of course assuming that you survive in a condition to take it off. What happens if you are involved in a personal injury accident and the insurance company walks away because you failed to declare a serious performance enhancing  modification.

You could end  being sued for thousands.

Sorry to the OP.
I obviously should have pointed out that if you remap your engine, that when your insurer asks 'has it been modified in any way' you must tell them that it has been remapped. Oh and the Sorento does not come with a tow bar as standard either so remember to let your insurers know it has one fitted too.

For the benefit of Steve W 77 and lambchop999, who are obviously from the anti remap brigade, I have been driving modified vehicles now for many years. Some of which required specialist insurance, others just need to notify the insurer who may have added a small premium. My insurance this year for my 2006 Sorento after the remap was added and declared from the start of the policy with documentation supplied to the insurers, added just 7 to my premium. As my MPG increased from 27 to 31 around town, this 7 extra pays for it's self within 7 gallons of fuel.
Maybe you should actually look into ALL the benefits and costs of remaps for your own vehicles before jumping onto the back of a post that does not require biased opinions and actually contribute to the OP's original question with facts or suggestions that they can use to their advantages.

I can't speak for Steve but I am not" one of the anti-map brigade" I am happy with the performance of the Sorento and as for fiddling with it to save a few pence on consumption I am not in the dire straits that some people appear to be. Being sued for "thousands" doesn't worry me too much either! I have never set foot in a Lidl or other cheapo place and hope I never do.
