    Hi,

    After a bit of research I've decided to get my 320D remapped. Spoke to Jason at BW Chiptune as they are quite popular on this forum and he thinks he can get my 150Bhp up to 200Bhp. I do have some questions being a newbie on this forum as well as BMW owner.

    1) Do I need to have a rolling road tune?

    2) 50Bhp seems quite a big increase and Im not sure if it makes any difference on economy, parts etc..if I keep it down a notch Eg 190Bhp.

    3) How much does the acceleration increase by typically, eg 0-62 mph time?

    Any advice greatly welcome, and I will post a review once it's completed next weekend. Cheers.

    Sure Jason will look after you.. ! But 1 not at all but there good to see the gains on.. 2 Thats a big jump on an older car.. But have a chat see if there offer a milder map.. 35-40hp. 3 its more about your 50/70mph times ;-)
    Thanks Mike

    ok thanks for the info. I was hoping to see a quicker response in the lower gears and about town as its not often I do motorway driving.
    I'll talk to Jason regarding the extent of the map and see what he suggests, 200Bhp is probably a stretch anyhow.

    Thanks

    This is a Dyno graph of what we get from these e46 320d 150bhp engine
    There is no problem getting an extra 45-50 Bhp from a bmw Diesel engine

    As you can see from the Dyno graph your car will have more torque through the rev range
    It will be more responsive off the line
    Smoother with less lag for much better town driving as well

    Dyno testing before and after will show the power of your engine before and after our remap
    Having a Dyno dynamics rolling road on site allows us to prove the power gain on your car rather than us say your car will end up with x amount
    It also helps us fix car that have loss of power as well

    This car had over 135,000miles on when we tuned it
    I've tune cars that have over 300,000miles and they have made standard power on the Dyno
    Just goes to show you how the machining tolerances are a 100% on these days compared to 20 years ago or more don't forget how much better lubrication is as well

    As long as the components are in good condition on the engine there's no problem tuning the engine

    I custom make my own files so can adjust to your liking


    I have my own Indy bmw garage
    Im an ex bmw tech with over 28 years on bmw cars and I use the best tools out there

    I make my own custom tuned files in house and for other we know tuning company's
    I also own the oldest tuning tools supplier to the professional tuner in the uk

    Remember not all Remaps are the same !!!

    We have had many customers that come to us just for power testing after they have had a remap by other company's as they are not happy and they have see the proof of what they payed for they then ended up going back many times to the other company just to be fobbed off by the company

    I thought I should post a write up of my experience now that I've been driving the remapped version for a few weeks. I met Jason from BW on the day once he had remapped my car and he took me for a spin to demo the difference. I have to say I was impressed with Jason's passion for what he does and I would recommend him to anyone else seeking a safe and knowledgeable pair of hands to tweak their Engine.

    As soon as I got in the car it felt different, the boost in your back when you touch the accelerator was startling. The car felt more agile and responsive particularly noticeable being an auto. Especially noticeable was the fact that power (or torque) seemed immediately available at a press of the pedal and there was no real acceleration lag, plus no need for the gearbox to drop a gear to accelerate. The bhp was increased from 150 to about 195 I think and the car is so much more fun to drive.

    I've also taken it up North for a few long runs and it has been a dream to drive, accelerating quite effortlessly at higher speeds when overtaking. I would strongly recommend a remap for anyone who has a similar age BMW as the £250 investment completely changes the experience.

    Like the dyno graph I posted earlier in this thread

    Hi could you provide me a quote for remapping my car
    ITs a 2005 Bmw E46 coupe sports 320 CD with 150bhp in a very good condition
    just wondering to get it tuned but as long as it won't harm the engine and components in the longer run.
    and also tell me where are you based as i live in Berks
