I have a new 316des arriving next month. The general spec of the car has been upgraded but I have concerns about the lack of bhp the 316d has. I believe it is basically an electronically de-tuned 320d with only 118bhp available?
What if any re-mapping or re-tuning options are available for the 316d ?
This is a lease vehicle so it would need to be something that can either be removed before a service is carried out or not be detectable by a BMW dealer. I do not want to run into warranty problems. I am not looking for a race tune that will light the tyres up every time I press the accelerator, really what I would like is more torque to make the car a bit more user friendly on motorways etc.
I have seen different companies such as Bluefin, Viezu advertising tuning units etc but my concerns revolve around whether any new map can be removed and if it would leave any indication the ECU was mapped/demapped should any potential problems occur. I think the Viezu V switch unit in particular looks a possibility ?
I have emailed them to ask questions but not had a reply as yet.
Am I on to a loser here - or can anyone point me in the right direction please ?
