    Hey Guys,

    From searching the internet, and various forums I have been unable to find a clear answer.

    Is it worth (or even possible?) to re-map a 325i N53? (3.0L engine) Some sites are saying you need the 3-stage manifold off a 330i, others are saying you can hit near on 268bhp with just a map.

    Has anyone had there 325i re-mapped? If so, was it worth it/where did you have it done?

    I have a drive-line warranty on the car, so I suppose I should let that run out before looking into this more seriously?

    Thanks for reading!

    I know this is an old thread now, but I'm just about to take delivery of a 2010 125i coupé. I really wanted something with the power of the 130i, but not the hatchback look.

    I own a 330d e90 msport and re-mapped it using my own company and saw incredible gains! 700nm torque! In regards to the ! series there, i remapped my mums for economy and she's been saving money! best off all it doesn't void the warranty so you don't have to wait!

    ALL TUNING on cars with warranty will void warranty if and when found out

    Don't be fooled by other company's that tell you it doesnt void warranty if the remap is found out it will and I have be saying this for years

    I tune new cars all over the world and only in asia do the dealers give warranty with a remap as they have the biggest Market

    If you can bring your car down I can remap tune your 125i for more power like the 130i

    I've had trouble logging back onto the forum, so have only just seen the other posts. I'm still very interested in getting more power, but just like xPETZx am a bit confused by claims of power gains that seem to be stated by various companies. And, I have also read all sorts about the manifold upgrade. I would definitely like to explore that route before the remap, if that would give me much larger gains.

    I also have a warranty that I'd like to keep intact, so will probably wait till that has run out. I think I have about 9 months left on that.
