Default BSR or NORDIC

2001 9-5 AERO 5sp..I am ready to purchase one of these ECU upgrades..I already have a REMUS cat back and a open air intake with a K+N filter..BSR is easy a plug and play type not to sure about customer service?? NORDIC car is out of service for a few days once installed not easy to remove but very good cutomer service..Looking for comments from people who have upgraded with either unit..

My car has never been out of service with Nordic or Maptun.

They send you the ECU, and you send them your old one after yours is fitted

I've had Maptun Stage 1 & 2, Speed parts Stage 4 and Nordic Custom ECU.

I have been delighted with the Nordic software, but thats just a personal opinion!

Thumbs up

Hi Real deal. I went the way of BSR PPC Stage 1 on my 2000 Aero. Purely for convenience really as its a plug and play. Ordered it one day and on the car the next.No problems with the 25 minute install on the car and its been problem free. Each system is excellent and it is purely down to what your preference is and your future requirements. If you look around the forum the pros and cons of each type of tune have been discussed in great depth and all I can really say is look at the discussions and make up your mind accordingly.

Either way its a great boost to the current car.
