We will match the published price of any US supplier* -- even their current sales prices! If you find an item advertised at a lower price, make a notation in your online order, call or email us at email@example.com with your price match request (see terms and details below). We'll sell you the SAME item at the SAME price! If you've already purchased the item from us, we'll even price match (for store credit only) as long as you contact us with your request within 7 days of placing your order.
This offer is restricted to identical items offered for sale in writing or on the web. When making your price match request, you must provide us with a link to the competitor's Internet URL for the item, a copy of the written ad or written quotation, which must include Supplier's part number, description and price.
Price Match Terms and Fine Print:
In some cases we may choose not to price match; here are some reasons why:
• The competitor's product is not an exact match (identical manufacturer & model) with ours.
• The competitor with the lower price does not have the item in stock at their warehouse.
• The competitor's total price (including shipping, handling, taxes, etc.) is higher.
• The competitor's product is used, refurbished, reconditioned, or a display model.
• The competitor is not selling in US dollars.
• The product is a clearance or closeout item.
• The item is not found within the first 10 items listed on major search engine results.
• The competitor is not manufacturer authorized or has advertised below the manufacturers minimum allowed price for the item.
* Qualified U.S. Suppliers are established businesses that routinely and regularly sell the item to be matched from an established physical storefront or warehouse.
While we endlessly aim to maintain the accuracy of item availability, descriptions and availability, we reserve the right to correct errors. We reserve the right to choose not to honor this offer.
How to Request a Price Match:
Please send a separate email with the subject header of PRICE MATCH REQUEST. Provide the competitor's name, part number, item description, URL link to the exact item and the competitor's price along with your request to price match. If we agree to match the price, you will be contacted with a confirmation and directions on how to place your order for the price request. In the event we cannot match the price, we will notify you by email.
Alternatively, you may call us with your request. We'd love to talk with you. We generally respond to price match requests within one business day.
Increase performance with faster gear shifts on your FIAT 500X with the AutoFlash by MADNESS!
Designed to work with either the 1.4L Turbo or the 2.4L Motor. The flasher has both maps loaded (1.4 & 2.4) and once plugged in the correct map will automatically download to the vehicle.
The MADNESS AutoFlash relies on updating the maps of the TCU to allow the gearbox to improve shift times and bypass the torque limiter.
The AutoFlash is a great stand alone solution to improve your vehicle's performance, but also works well in addition to an ECU tune/ Piggy Back Box.
Often times vehicle manufactures will limit the full potential of a vehicle to compensate for all levels of drivers and maintenance, or because the manufacturer knows that in 18 months they will be releasing a more powerful version of that vehicle and can adjust the limiters to allow for this power increase.
So, the idea of the AutoFlash is to not only increase shift speed but to increase torque limitations throughout the gearing (except for 1st and reverse gears as we leave these at factory spec for safety) which in turn changes the speed of a shift, typically by 17% but up to 24% in certain circumstances.
The AutoFlash has been thoroughly tested both on the road and the track and we are sure you will agree that the shift and positive feel of the engine after the flash makes for a superb upgrade.
Plugs directly into the OBDII port
Installs the software in 30-90 seconds
Uploads new maps to the engine ECU and gearbox TCU
Will work on both the 1.4 and the 2.4 engine (both maps inside)
Will not trigger the ECU Flash counter and is not dealer traceable
Increase shifts by up to 24%
Bypass throttle limitations
Tested on road and track
About the MADNESS AutoFlash:
The MADNESS AutoFlash is a revolutionary new product not like anything else available on the market today. It is a tool which can access settings within your vehicles engine and gearbox control units allowing you to increase power and torque by around 10-15% and automatic gearbox shifting by 21-50% faster depending on the vehicle model.
AutoFlash can be used along with an ECU remap already existing on your car and will not erase an existing maps, it can also be used with any tuning box and other engine hardware modifications without issues.
The AutoFlash maps install withing 30-90 seconds and it will not change the ECU flash counter or file size which could alert the manufacturer to the car being modified, this tune is undetectable.
If you ever take your car to a dealer for service or software update and they overwrite the AutoFlash, simply re-install it just as you did during the first installation. You can do this as many times as needed to your vehicle. Keep in mind that the AutoFlash will lock on to your cars VIN Number on first use and cannot work on any other vehicle after you sync it with your car.
Please note! Once this unit is linked with your vehicle it is married to the car by the VIN Number. While you can use it over and over again on your car if needed after a dealer visit, but you cannot use it on another car. Trying to sync it with another vehicle once you paired it with your car can do damage to the item and the ECU in the car. Due to the way the unit is designed to work it cannot be used on another vehicle once it is paired with yours.
Due to this we cannot accept returns for this item in any way. We have no way to tell if the unit was paired or not with a vehicle and if it is returned we cannot use it again. Because of this all sales are final on this unit once you purchase it. There are no returns or exchanges of any kind and all sales are final. Please be sure to ask any questions prior to ordering. Once shipped there are no refunds or exchanges.
Video below shows the AutoFlash being installed on the Jeep Renegade. Please note that the Jeep Renegade and FIAT 500X share the same platform and the installation is identical on both vehicles.

MADNESS Autoworks was originally known as SMART MADNESS a company that became famous for customizing and accessorizing smart cars.
SMART MADNESS has become the largest provider of smart car parts, accessories and customizing services in North America and now one of the largest globally in just a couple of short years.
We accomplished this goal by providing the very best in products and services at reasonable prices with a personal touch. We treat our customers like family members and do our best to make sure every one of our customers gets the very best treatment possible.
A number of our customers own other cars besides the smart car and continuously ask us if we would also work and or customize their other car due to their positive experience with us. This is how MADNESS Autoworks was born.
Our goal is simple! Provide you, the driver with the widest range of products, servicing and customizing options with friendly service at a very competitive price.
After spending years working on cars and working with many suppliers we thought at times we could do better by designing and manufacturing some products ourselves. We started partnering up with our most trusted manufacturing partners and suppliers, investing in infrastructure, manufacturing equipment and recruiting some of the best talent that could help us design and build superior products and make them available to our fellow drivers.
Our goal is to provide a top quality product that has been tested and used in our own cars and has proven to last and provide a good value for the investment. Whether you are looking for the best value in a set of floor mats, a performance exhaust system, an intake, a roll cage or a carbon fiber part the MADNESS Item is designed to deliver on our promise of bringing a good quality item at a reasonable price. We do not design and build our products to be the cheapest, we design then to be the best value for the money and stand behind them the same way we stand behind our work.
