Keep well away from these as they lie to the ECU & mainly all they do is overfuel,if you want it re-mapping I recommend Alive tuning or BellAutos that do them on a rolling road so you know the bhp your getting & these guys know the limits without damaging engine,gearbox. Andy.

When you own something as expensive as a RRS if you want a power increase I would spend the extra and get a decent remap. I've had mine done by DMS who are one of the best in the business and the car feels much better for it and is noticeably quicker.

+1 I agree
Get a proper remap.
I have had a remap on a Diesel from Pete Bell at BAS https://bellautoservices.co.uk/
Also had a remap on a Petrol from JE Engineering https://jemotorworks.co.uk/
Both of these remaps made a fantastic difference. Thumbs Up In Spain - 2018 F Pace - Down and out's Velar
Gone - A couple of RRS, A couple of Disco's. Plus loads of cars, some I'm too ashamed to mention.

My sdv6 was remapped by Alive 4 years ago now. Better using a specialist map than a box.

United Kingdom 2012 Range Rover Sport Supercharged Sumatra Black

If it's possible to get 31 mpg out of a 715 BHP twin turbocharged V12 then 37 mpg is not that remarkable: Very Happy

I've not seen much mpg change and the only time I ever got mid 30mpg was on the A9 which has miles of average speed cameras. Typically 20 to 22mpg if doing a lot of town or 27 to 29 motorway. The performance is excellent though and no roundabout hesitation.

MPG depends on driving style journey length traffic how hilly what load you have on board etc. In a car this size 1 or 2mpg is nothing to be too excited about.
