    Throttle controller

    Anyone fitted one of these? Ultimate 9 Throttle Controller (Discovery 3/Sport) EVC553 I'm happy with how it drives for the post part but do feel it's a bit hesitant under some circumstances

    This is the i-Drive which I've just been advised has a name change for AU.
    I have one in my 2.7 D4 and its brilliant - gets rid of the lag completely and you have a range of 4 options to suit your driving style including automatic and off, and 9 graded options within each of economy and performance.

    I-drive.
    Brilliant.
    I have one in the D4 set on "U-2" which I find is sensitive enough for me for road use.
    Highly recommended and you can play with many settings to suit your driving style.
    I don't notice any hesitations at all.

    Do they just loop into the pedal assembly ?, current price is a lot cheaper than a remap.

    Just downloaded the instructions, might buy myself a xmas present


    I know it wont have the same affect as a remap but for the price its worth a test.

    I bought the HIKEit X9 for the sluggish off the mark I was experiencing and WOW it changed that.
    It just loops into the pedal connector, easy as to fit.
    It doesn't do anything for actual power or torque gains like a remap but gets rid of the lag that some of us suffer from.

    I have both - it makes a big difference to response. The remap gives the torque and power.

    I had one of these throttle controllers on my D4 and i was really impressed with the improvement to performance, then it all went t o hell after an hour of driving. It came up with transmission fault, limp mode and the car would crawl to a stop. The racq came up with the code P2122-16 and P2127-16 throttle/ pedal position sensor input to low, and P2290.00 injector controll pressure to low. I dont know if this was related to the controller or not but it did it again after the controller was removed. Investigations are ongoing.

    Did you have an I-drive controller or one of the cheap and nasty ones?
    If it is an I-drive and the fault is associated with it, I have no doubt that they'll help you as their Product Support is excellent.

    Hi All,

    Just read the iDrive blrub .... I'm pretty tempted. I've had 2 D4s since 2010 and whilst I'm used to it .... I dislike the throttle response lag. It really puts other people off driving my car.

    Do you have to remove the pedal in a D4 or can you get sufficient access in-situ?

    Cheers,

    Kev.
