    Hi All,

    I have just brought a 55 plate BMW 523I and absolutely love it, but as usual I am always looking to the next project.

    A couple of friends have suggested a remap which I believe on will raise the current BHP from 177 to 189. Has anyone had this done and are the remaps worth it? If so do people recommend that I upgrade any other components before I start messing which the ECU.

    Thanks for your time!

    John

    Remaps on NA car's are about driveability not power..

    A lot of conflicting reviews around about NA remaps.. some say they are awesome, others say they aren't worth it..

    Basically they are used on NA cars to reduce flat spots and smooth out the torque curve.. personally I wouldn't bother myself although I've considered it in the past

    Thanks Baderlfc, Do you have any suggestions as to what can be upgraded or should I just leave it be? She is a little sluggish for my liking but the quality and comfort more than make up for that. If I could find a way to make her a little better on the pick up and with fuel, i'd be in heaven

    It's all down to who dose the remap as most will used tuning software that will show them which maps can be adjusted
    I sell most of the top brands that tuners use so I know what the limotaions are in the maps

    It's like giving you a book to read with pages missing With an exam at the end you can't complete

    That how a can fly to Asia and retune cars to get alot more as well as the cars here
