Hi folks I am sorry if this is a repeat type of question but my 3 year old 330d convertible is now just out of warranty and it made me wonder if I should go for a remap as in theory there is nothing to lose. However a quick review of some previous comments makes me wonder how robust is the engine to cope with around 270 ish bhp and 570 plus nm [versus its current 231 and 500]
Quite frankly I find the heavy convertible [perhaps my extras, heated seats, sat nav etc also add weight to the car] makes it rather tardy when coming up against golf tdis and even BMW 520s have given me a run for my money. I'm an experienced [IAM] driver and the car is serviced decent tyres etc. I like to drive safely but quickly. Am I having a late nearly 60 mid life crisis and wasting my money?
I look forward to some thoughts and many thanks in advance if anyone can provide me with some sensible comments and testimonials.
