    To be honest there's no point in spending money to gain a little more speed out of it as it would put your insurance up higher than buying a bigger engined BMW.

    I know they are slow but still nice to drive and fast enough to get you banned

    Hi Kas,

    A Remap would help although the numbers aren't massive on these but certainly makes them a bit more fun to drive.

    Expect around 12-15 bhp max.

    I have a 318ci from last year (also x reg) - not for performance more for fuel economy and a run around - i treat it like a van now. It looks nice but has no power lol and totally know how you feel ! Live with it mate and wait till you can get a straight 6.

    Not really worth doing any mods to the 318's
    ive heard a remap is good for removing the flat spots
    but other than that i wouldnt bother.

    a mate had a K&N on his sounded the dogs but it reduced the performance.

    im only 19 and the insurance on the 6pots is stupid.
