    Hi everyone,

    I have a 2006 520d 163bhp and am looking to remap it.
    The only remap people I can find within a sensible distance from where i live (swansea) is a company that do evolution chips.

    1.Do remaps really work and what am i looking to gain?
    2.Has anyone had experience with evolution chips or are they reputable?
    3.Does anyone know of someone doing remaps in the S.Wales area?

    Thanks

    mark.

    Hi Mark

    There are 2 main companies that appear on the forum as vendors.
    Motech and E-maps

    http://www.bimmerforums.co.uk/forum/f94/

    If you check their websites you should be able to see typical power gains for your model.
    I think E-maps will travel to you and Motech are in Northamptonshire.

    I'm down for a remap soon and I did a lot of searching around until I found a company that had a good reputation,
    after all you don't want any old idiot with a laptop remapping your pride and joy.
    Both these companies have very good reputations but ultimately it is your choice.
    Personally I even thought of traveling 150 miles to get a remap and stay overnight in a cheap hotel.
    Or getting a group together for a remap is another alternative?

    Hope that helps and good luck

    We have our dyno setup in Hayes if you every want to see what it's putting out
    And I also know tuners around the uk that will read,send me the file so I can adjust the maps, then send back so they can upload it to your car

    I have a tuner in Swansea if that help you
    or
    I can send out our BW Flasher unit for you to do this at home or keep if you want to swap between maps
    Here is a dyno graph of a 520d we remapped and tested on our dyno dynamics rolling road


    My advise to all out there is to take your car to well know tuner with a dyno so you have proof of the remap or use a forum sponcer

    As you can see the post above is a advert
    He has only posted 1 time on the forum and it is to advertise another company
