    Hi,
    recently purchased a 330D M Sport BMW, 2002.

    someone mentioned the Superchip Bluefin. can anyone tell me a bit more, what are the pro's and any cons about getting this done?

    thanks in advance.

    i've got no experaince of the blue fin but a remap is general is well worth doing! even more so on a diesel speak to whichever is the closest vendor on here to you and they'll tell you whats possible for your car!

    Bluefin remaps can be loaded on and reset at will so you can turn your car back to standard if needed, but generally they are a bit milder than most other remaps.

    I imagine you'd have the 184bhp version, I'm not sure what Superchips offer but I would get you to something in the region of 215-220bhp, and 70-80Nm of torque.

    Generally bluefin is a bit more expensive as you also pay for the kit to reprogram the cars which you keep hold of (it will be locked to your car on first use) so the "value" is different.

    It's easier to swap around, but usually not as powerful, and often more expensive.
