    You may get more of a response if you post this in the tuning forum

    It was one thing that I always wanted to do when I had my tds engine fitted in my 3 series but circumstances did not allow unfortunately.

    I would have an engine check up before hand just to be sure you still wish to do it as the fuel pumps can be troublesome

    Seems strange to believe that we have forum vendors that specialise in this field but have not done one of these?

    I think it may be worth dropping them a PM with a LINK to this thread

    I have just messaged APTuning, Emaps and motechmike (listed in alphabetical order only) with a link to this thread so they should be able to answer when they log in next

    These cars need to be chipped and not remapped.

    I can do these cars and would need the ECU to work from the two chips. If you can post me the ECU I can do the chips the same day.

    Drop me an email through my website if you want
