    Hi Guys,

    I have a really nice early E46 328i.

    I would like to just increase its performance.

    I dont really want to go down the changing intake minifold route, mine is a M52, so ive been told it cant be done anyway.

    I was wondering, is it really worth having it chipped or anything, and would i really see any noticeable improvements in performance.

    The point is, if i did chip it or anything, would the fuel consumption suffer drastically? I do around 100 miles a day monday to friday at the moment, 75% motorway

    Cheers guys !!

    Find out about remapping your car-as you do motorway driving alledgedly you MPG actually improves and you get better response throughout the range ie no flatspots and should see some gains in HP and Torque too

    Shadow, if any help I had my 330 mapped, don't expect it to become a M3 but as stk has said the driveability was a great improvement and much more torque at lower revs. I don't do much town driving and my mpg stays around 30/31
