    Hi
    just a quick report had my e46 318 (n42 engine) remapped by Simon from emaps couple of weeks ago now and I am well impressed. The figures on paper almost didnt look like it was worth doing 12bhp, 20 whatsits of torque
    but what a difference its made, the car is much more quiet and lively, mid range acceleration has a marked improvement and it will pull away rapidly from 80mph (tested on private road) off the line launch is much quicker.
    Flat spots are gone and fuel consumption has gone from 35.6mpg to 38.2mpg and that giving it some down the motorways

    All in all well worth it

    cheers

    Dave

    Very good mate

    What made you go for it?

    I quite fancy a remap myself but get told the same old, waste of money for a 318i

    I read some reports of improved mpg so I thought it was worth doing just for that as I plan to keep the car long term anyway,

    there are a lot of opinions but not many of them based on actual testing/ownership so I thought I would give it a go. The standard engine is a bit gutless so every little is going to help.
    I put my money where my mouth is and I am not disappointed

    cheers

    Good man. Inspiring for some other 318i owners perhaps
