Bought a 2001 E46 330d today and want to up the power.
I'm not talking about silly, clutch wrecking, diff shredding power, just a decent torque increase and more punch. I'd also like to hear the exhaust grunt a bit more.
I'm no virgin to tuning cars, i've modded almost everything i've owned BUT i've never modded a DERV or a BMW!
The usual route i'd go would be de-cat, exhaust, panel filter or induction kit then a decent mapping session, is it the same for dervs?
I'm based inbetween Nottingham and Leicester so i'm looking for a midlands mapper please. I've heard that R-tech in Hinkley are good, anyone else used them?
I'll also be looking for suspension upgrades, a shorter gear shift and any upgrades that are available from later models that fit the E46 (suggestions welcome).
Thanks to anyone who takes the time to reply. Cheers Stu
