    I would really appreciate if someone can give me some answers on how to get some better performance and sound to my 2003 318D, I was reading about cleaning out my EGR valve, taking off the 2nd CAT and also removing the rear silencer, Remapping. Do you know if all of these are possible to do to my car? And is their anything else that i can do, i really want to put some work into my car and will like some feedback..

    You can do all of them, but I'd avoid removing the rear silencer completely!

    Remapping and decatting will have the greatest effect.

    You have posted a lot of times and the simple answer is a remap removing bits will make very little difference (2-5PS) a remap for €500 will add 80PS

    If i did a remap will i also need to change other parts on the car so it can keep up with the newer performance after the remap?

    A remap on it's own will be fine and also give you the most amount of power for you money
    If you want more after this I would advise you to buy a car with bigger engine size
