    Hi All

    I am new to BMW's and to be honest dont know alot about them. i have a e46 320ci sport coupe on a 03 reg and thinking of doing a few bits to it.

    i would like to put some nice discs and pads on it nothing stupid just a subtle upgrade. any ideas?

    also can you chip them BMW's? have you got any recomendations if so?

    thanks in advance

    Hiya there, These 320i can be remapped via the diagnostic port and we see good gains from these even though they are normally aspirated. Normally looking at around 15bhp and maybe 22Nm torque. The throttle response is improved and flat spots are virtually non-existant. As for brakes, there are plenty out there. Personally I would only buy cross-drilled discs myself and stick to good quality!
    If I can be of any further assistance then you can contact me on 07930410102 or email: info@APTuning.co.uk
    all the best,
    Darren@APTuning

    hi thanks for the reply. i am interested in improving the performance of the car the remap sounds like a good point to start any recomendations? also is there any other mods you can recomend ? i am not interested in exhausts etc just wondering if these cars are restricted in any other ways?

    Cheers
