    Just bought a 2002 320d saloon. Is mine 150bhp or is their different bhps, seems slow for 150 if it is. Is a remap worth it, does it put the insurance up much. Is the engine actually fit for more power, does the turbo not blow up easily. Is it nicer to drive or are you changing gears the whole time. One more question, what is a touring, is that an estate or an automatic or something?

    Obviously I'm not a tuner just a fellow 320d driver, here's some of my observations, the E46 is a large and heavy car so 150bhp might not feel so quick depending on what you're comparing it to, also are you totally confident the car is running as it should.

    The Engine is "fit for more power" but is dependant on its condition, service history and how much you want to strain other components,
    Turbo, gearbox etc.

    The Turbo is a known weak point but most will agree thats down to elongated oil service intervals and failure to change to Oil Separator regularly.

    A mild 185bhp remap should give you more torque throughout the rev range so effectively you can change gear less just pottering along,
    or floor it to let rip, better drive-ability imo.

    The Touring is the estate car body shape immaterial of transmission type.

    You'll need to contact your own insurance to see if the rise in premium is worth having the remap.

    Sadly I see you're in NI and all the approved forum tuners are here on UK mainland, so if you're still intending a remap
    make sure you do your homework on the company you're intending to use, don't let any fool with a laptop loose on your pride and joy.

    I'm sure one(or more) of the forum approved remappers will be able to add their professional opinion to your thread

    if you remap this you can get the bhp to 200-205bhp with no problems torque is an extra 70-80nm

    will have instant responce and alot less turbo lag as they say(but this is more to do with the extra fuel thats added when you put your foot down)

    your insurace may not like it though

    As I've said to couple of other fellow Irish lads recently. Give me a shout at info@aptuning.co.uk and I'll give you the details of a friend of mine who lives in Ireland and runs a tuning business.
