    Hey there am looking into buying a 318ti auto and was wandering which company would be best to get it remapped safely. it is mainly for economy as i am a musician and would be doing a few miles in it but a few extra ponies would be nice to overcome the auto box. i have seen figures of around 151bhp after the remap is this about right? if any1 can recommend a company that would do it for around £200 this would be great. many thanks

    try emaps, there a vendor on here and offer remaps around £200 i believe!

    the 318ti standard is 143bhp so 151bhp would sound about right, maybe slightly more, again though emaps should be able to give you accurate facts and figures on this!

    200 quid is a fair amount of fuel. How long you keeping the car for?

    also i think you'll find it'll only incease your mpg by 2-3 maximum, so maybe just drive as ecomonically as possible and save yourself £200??

    all well and good but we are talking about an auto here, so if the box doesnt have step, the drifting will be marred by a confused gearbox.

    Theoretically speaking, extra power would put extra load on all sorts of components. I would say that the figures we are talking here would be so minute that the life threatening aspect to components would be almost non existent. Its not as if you are strapping a supercharger on the motor.

    That said, if you were running a car with a gearbox that was due to blow its guts out, then any extra power could (again, in theory) cause premature failure.

    Personally, I wouldnt worry too much about the box.

    Am glad to say my 325 Compact is a step box. Absolutely love the box. Wouldnt want one without it. But for those who have never had a step and are used to autos, the non step shouldnt be a worry (excluding drifty type peeps).
