The other snag is that if you did this to gain the extra 15/20 BHP, you would be forced to use 98 ron fuel.
Talking of those with diesels in the UK yes dead easy to chip the 200 diesels to the 220, there is no difference at all other than this. The reason why Mercedes off the 200 is for countries like Thailand where you are taxed heavily on anything over the 200, thats also why you see so many Brabus 200 Mercedes over there.
Also when people have chipped their car for economy, they often never get that as the car goes faster, it gets driven faster and this cancels out any savings.
