Today I had my 2nd car tuned at Tunex. The first time was some 7-8 years ago. What immediately struck me was the smoothness, which I recognized from the first time (on a completely different engine, by the way). From 1 to 2 and 2 to 3, the engine would sometimes go a little lumpy at low revs (such as at traffic circles), sputtering a bit. I knew this would disappear, but it’s great when you then actually experience it the first traffic circle around the corner at Tunex. Drove slowly on the way home, up to 3,000 rpm. Don’t expect me to come up here often. What tremendous smoothness, it’s like a diesel. Now this engine has won awards for years, but it remains unprecedented how a 1.0 three-cylinder (turbo) can feel. In terms of pulling power, I felt little to no difference from a new Renault Mégane 1.5dCi I drove shortly after. For speed, it was beyond me, although the car is clearly faster and takes less effort. I can now drive the car nicely shifter and there is more peace in the complete picture. From 120hp/ 200Nm to 145hp/240Nm is not shocking (although on a 1216kg car it is relatively hefty), but the driving experience has really improved. And that for a modest 275 Euros and within 2 hours. Also compliments to the hospitality at reception, in between and departure. Top!
