    Just curious if these tuning boxes which are available for the 320td are benificial and if anyone has fitted them to their car?

    Can you really feel the difference? Or is it just a waste of money?

    eg.....

    If you are after a plug and play device which will allow you to put your car back to standard at any time then may I suggest the V-switch which I can supply. Have a look at http://www.viezu.net/3_products.htm And if interested then give me a call on 07930410102 or email me info@APTuning.co.uk for best price. These have been fantastic sellers within the VAG community for ages now but very few people with BMW's seen to know about them yet there are so many BMW owners who look at the cheap so called tuning boxes.

    Hi,
    Ive been doing some sniffing around with regards to these tuning boxes for my 525 tds and found a few places that do them.
    One that is close to me is DTUK and from a plug and play piont of view they seem to be the way forward for me. They also do plug and play systems for the whole BMW diesel range from what the guy was saying.

    I just thiught i would post this info as its always best to check out all your options available.

    If its anything to go by the lad down there is running an E91 335d with a one of these boxes and its awsome

    Some plug and play box's are better than other's, But they still do the same job as in sending incorrect info to the ecu..

    I understand About the box sending incorrect info to the ecu but remap just does the same really apart from you manipulate the ecu to send incorrect signals out to the injectors ect. So its the same difference really.

    Remap is reprogramming the ecu, the ecu will be the part that requests as well as determines the engine running parameters. Plug in box will just fool one or more of the inputs to the ecu so the output will change. Remap can change about 50-95% more than most plug ins will ever do.

    So because your manipulating the ecu does that mean the signals it sends and recieves are correct then?
