    Hi All,

    I'm new here, not sure if this topic is in the correct place?

    I have a 335d at present, I had a 335i but one of the turbo's went so I went for an 07 335d e90 (all black) three weeks ago.

    I'm currently looking into a remap but would like the flexiability of going back to a stock map.

    So my question is, has anyone had any experiance of the e-motion from Celtic Tuning? I have seen lots of posts regarding the Bluefin product but not much about the e-motion.

    Celtic Tuning's offering in looking the best at present, partly due to the 345bhp I would get versus the 333bhp with the Bluefin.

    I have heard of "limp" mode issue's in the Bluefin product but I can't find anything for the e-motion? Is that a good thing?

    Any help or guidance would be appriecated.

    Thanks

    Hi Mike,

    I'm in Nottingham, just off Jct 25 of the M1.

    I'm wanting the advantage of using a module to put the stock map back on if I want to so the two products I have mentioned earlier fit me very well.

    What suggestions do you have?

    Sorry to ask lots of questions

    I can look into a DIY module for you, but they do cost more as you get the tuning work, plus a box of electronics to carry out the changes.

    As Mike says, Limp modes tend to be when someone has forgotten a limiter map, for example there are a number of turbo maps, all cross referenced with others, an overall maximum boost limiter map, and then usually a single value boost limiter too.

    If one is forgotten, or the tolerances are too tight, it can overshoot one of the limiters, and the car will cut power thinking it might accidentally boost the head off into space.

    In this case, I think it might be the tolerances, there is an allowable buffer but if it is too small, it can cross the line occasionally and drop the car into reduced power mode.

    The switchable map boxes may also add to the internal flash counter, BMW specifies (although incorrectly) that the ECU can only be reprogrammed 12 times.

    This isn't actually true, the memory re-flashed can be flashed 120,000 times without problems, but I guess it's BMW's "throw the towel in" value if an ECU has been reprogrammed a number of times, and still is looking for a flash to sort a problem.

    The flash counter is visible in BMWs programming system, and although 1-2 reflashes would go un-noticed as normal for the car's life, if you keep doing it, you *may* find BMW will be dead set on replacing the ECU if it has counted more than 12 programmings.

    I've yet to fully confirm if aftermarket flashing will add to the counter, but as it goes in the same way BMW go in, I'd think it is likely.

    Anyway.. scare stories aside, a couple of reprogrammings wouldn't attract attention, and their are plenty of independent BMW garages that would be able to carry out the same work as BMW without being tied up in red tape.
