    Hi and welcome

    I have moved this thread to the correct forum, please also have a read of
    This to assist the replies you will get from future posts

    Regarding remapping the 330D,
    yes, it is very worthwhile and this car/engine responds very well indeed to a custom remap.

    Iirc the 330D will put out over 500nm of torque after a good remap and this takes it into E46 M3 performance territory up to 80 mph where the M3 will walk away a little due to more revs etc

    What are are you from? and are you prepared to travel a little for a good remap?

    Silly prices and not that good!

    Ive put the word out to a few tuners I know and will post up when they confirm they have hardware and experience with the 330D.

    Ive also asked them for cost and hp output figures

    I have heard a lot of bad stories about Thorney so would personally avoid them.

    On the other hand I would highly recommend Evo-S.
