    Hi all,
    Il just go straight in to the question im asking, im finding my BMW really sluggish, dont know if its because my previous car was a 225TT, then a 3.2v6 vectra, but i want to get a remap or chip/box. cheapest option iv found and been recommended by 2 different people is 'bluesparkautomotive' chip tuning box. advises about a 35bhp increase along with about 700Nm
    As i said 2 people have recommended, anyone else had one? or know any other options within the £200 mark? i really dont know that much about tuning, so any other tips would be so grateful aswell
    Tayn

    Hi. U sure the car is running ok? The pull from the turbo is not that big kick in the back, but should pick up speed quite fast. Maybe read the codes, clean map and maf, change the crankcase breather, as they are usually the ones to blame when a 320d feels slugish.

    if im honest i dont think it is, i got it 3 days ago, there might be an underlying problem to why it feels so sluggish. and iv never had a diesel either. what should 0-60 and 60-100 be roughly? im going to say its about 12-13 0-60 and probably 18-20 60-100 il have a look on forums now and see how to do things advised, thank you very much for your input

    Should be enough power in first to make the tyres slide, with the traction of. In 3, around 2700rpm, foot down and it should overtake any lorry in your way, 5, on motorway, should feel brisk and with enough power till 100 and so on.
    Most important thing, I would say, is the crankcase breather, just for piece of mind, as it is a turbo killer. The rest, really read codes and a good cleaning with electrical cleaner to the map and maf, good oil and filters, hopefully it will cure the slow response. If not, there are other suspects, but a good working 320d should be fast enough for comute...
