I would be interested to know as well. My A35 is definitely crying for a remap!

Heard to wait though as there may be better options.

Ye Its just a typical tuning box, there’s a variety of different ones to choose from but they are not the same as a remap.
I messaged them to try and find more info on it but didn’t get a response. Most tuning boxes are advertised as untraceable once removed. The willow performance one doesn’t have a graph to back it up so gains are speculative.

Thanks for the info Kirk_88. I’m a complete novice when it comes to tuning and I’m eager to learn more. When you say a tuning box is not the same as a remap, could you expand a little? What are the pros and cons for each? TIA

A tuning box sits down the line from the ECU, and alters the data that the ECU receives and sends to the engine.
An ECU remap works by altering the software inside the ECU itself.

Have a read of this, just bare in mind they are a company that sell tuning boxes so may be a little bit biased towards them over a remap but you get the gist ?
I’ve had both in the past and there’s pros and cons to both of them, never had any issues with either, it comes down to personal choice.
