    Hi,
    I am considering getting a Tuning Box for my 150bhp 320d and am wondering if anyone has any experience/feedback?
    They all seem to do the same thing and vary in cost from as little as £75 for and extra 37bhp (ebay) which is great value but do they work?
    Thanks

    the simple answer is no they don't work. you'd be much better contacting someone like MotechMike, one of the forum vendors, and getting a remap.

    Yeah great value but unfortunately you get what you pay for !!! All these basic tuning boxes do is bump up the fuel pump pressure.

    I'm 100% with Doy, save your pennies and get a remap, the forum vendors are well documented here on delivering value for money remaps that won't $hag your engine, clutch or gearbox.

    You pays your money and you takes your choice???

    quickest way to fubar the high pressure fuel pump and at 7-800 quid just for the pump rather an expensive gamble .when they do burst they usually flood the sump and engine with diesel fuel too..
    330i sport a big chunk of berlin...
