    Hi Guys,

    Just wanted to find out if anyone has had much experience with these 2 respectable remapping companies and how they compare to each other?

    I am looking to remap my 335d and wanted to know which one gives the best performance gains and after sales support?

    Also is it worth getting a K&N Panel filter after getting a remap done?

    Thanks,
    Trigs

    Hi,

    Many thanks for your reply. I have read many forums and the general concensus is that DMS and Viezu are amonst the top tuners in the UK.

    Kind regards,

    Be aware that big flashy marketing support does not necessarily provide the best re-maps.

    How far are you prepared to travel and what is your budget?

    Bit of a tricky question as to whose best. Technically someone who can hook their laptop up to your car and datalog/monitor before making changes, testing and then making more changes is best but that is probably more than you need. Personally I'd just go to someone with happy customers.

    If you look through the vendor sections there are reviews from customers. Mark who posted above used one of the vendors for two of his own cars.

    As to panel filters I wouldn't bother. Most of the air filters are shared between lots of models so it looks like they do not restrict airflow.

    Hi Ian,

    Thanks for your reply. Which vendor claims that they can get the biggest (safest) gains to the car is what I'm looking for I guess. DMS claims that they can get 344BHP and 507 lb torque and Viezu are claiming that they can increase the car by 55BHP and 120Nm torque.

    So far these are pretty similar with DMS edging the BHP by 3BHP.

    Guess my question is can anyone better these figures and still offer the same kind of after sales support claims?

    Kind regards,
    Trigs

    Hi,

    Check out the E-maps website for gains also.Simon's got your neck of the woods covered.
    I think you'll be surprised and not to mention being an approved vendor on the site also.

    And you were quoted how much by DMS etc ??

    Cheers

    There's more to a map than headline power and any rolling road figures should be taken with a pinch of salt. You also wouldn't notice a few bhp difference at the power your talking about. I'd still be comparing the price differences and looking at the reviews.

    I agree with Ian, you could have 2 maps, one offering 20 bhp gains over the other (hypathetically) but that doesnt mean that its going to be more powerful at certain points in the rev range. it could be 20 bhp peak, but in the meat of the revs where you want the power the one with the lower headline peak could well end up offering you more. Dont be drawn in by power figures, you want the one that offers the best driveability. If that happens to be the one that offers the higher figures as well, then its a bonus
