This is what I'm thinking- for all the people saying Evolve is lovely but too pricey;

They're quoting 3k for the whole thing fitted parts labour remap wiring etc.
That's what I'm looking for.
You're the only person actually giving a total cost of getting the Karbonius box fitted and driving the way it should .. and there doesn't seem much difference.

Plus the fact Evolve have such a good reputation now in terms of being a proper recognised tuning-house where I could take the car back if it wasn't quite right- it's surely next best thing to an oem one.

I like my DIY around the e46, but really can't be arsed paying 1500 for just a box and then faffing about looking for parts/ wiring and ecu's etc.
Especially if it all adds up to 3k in the end!
