    hello, on the back of other posts of remaps and specifically bwchiptune, i decided to take the plunge. being that i live in lancashire and there are no agents of help around here, using their flasher unit was the only real choice for now.
    so two days ago i ordered the service and arrived two days later (today), all i needed was the software and a how to, which wasn't in my mailbox, one quick message to jason and he called back saying he'd sent it again, i quickly checked and it was there, speedy service indeed.
    software downloaded quickly and installed trouble free on laptop with windows 7.
    following the instructions carefully read the original file and sent it to jason with some specifics asked for in the instructions.
    waited a bit for file to be sent back and then uploaded to the flasher.
    less than five minutes later and all is done, no troubles instructions are crystal clear.

    only had a bit of a drive but the engine is far more responsive and a little more power is present, as said many time the power is not the biggest factor and you won't be seeing massive movement in that area, but it is perkier than before.
    i've only had a little drive so far and ecu is yet to "adapt" but you can feel the difference, not bogging down from 2k-4k like it did before and the extra few revs just help keep it in the powerband on quick shifting a bit better.
    was it worth the money?
    well only you can answer that, if i drive on the economy and slight increase power map as opposed to the aggressive one then i suspect the fuel savings alone will make your money back fairly quickly. the aggressive map doesn't seem to use any more than the standard map, so in that sense it's a win all round.
    i would definitely deal with jason and his company again if i needed some further development as he is so friendly and keen to be open and honest, he only promised improved performance and a smoother power delivery, he never claimed any figures or that it's be like a new car afterwards.

    so thumbs up and i will comment further once i have given both maps a bit of a thorough inspection on the road.

    cheers
    sean

    day2, the aggressive map is how bmw should have shipped the car, the response is much better, even sounds more throaty through the exhaust.
    economy kicking it's arse all over the place has suffered a bit, but only down to 21mpg average today, so no worse than standard in similar driving conditions.
    time to make new back box as it's too quiet.
