What makes DTE Different?
A DTE Tuning box is not for everyone.

DTE is the premier name in the Diesel engine tuning market. Our tuning systems are designed and manufactured at Recklingshausen in Germany, with a level of quality, performance and research and service that far outstrips other engine management alternatives.  There are cheaper tuning system elsewhere, and if you are working on a shoestring you will find alternatives that suit you more. 

A DTE Tuning system is for people who value the best, and want to get the very best from their vehicle.

So what is it that makes the DTE Tuning System so good?

The articles below tell you a little about the culture, build quality and performance that has made DTE the premier name in the Diesel tuning market.

The final article talks about how at Plug N Drive®, as the first official importers of DTE into the UK and in line with the brand values that have made DTE the world's best, we are aiming to take quality of service to a level that has never before been experienced in the UK Diesel Tuning market place.
