    It's a very small engine for a relatively heavy car. You won't be able to do anything to get noticeable gains. £2-300 might get you an extra 10 Bhp and even the power out a bit. That's why most people opt for an engine transplant for the easier and cheapest way to extra power. Drop a 325/328 lump in.

    This is the review of our remap we did on Total BMW mags e46 316ti
    They ran this in the mag a good few years ago after Paul wager asked me if I could remap there 316i n42 engine as we got good gains from these cars
    Attachment 43006
    Attachment 43007
    Attachment 43008

    The 0-60 mpg using racelogic gps system was 13.3seconds as standard
    After our remap the car was 11.9seconds 0-60mph
    With much better throttle response

    hey OP, i have a 316i and i bought one of these: accelerator tuning engine performance - it doesn't make the car any more powerful but it makes it *feel* a LOT more powerful makes the car a lot more fun to drive. they have a 30-day full refund policy so i'd highly recommend checking them out. people will likely reply to this telling you it's stupid because it doesn't increase the power, but it makes the car a lot more responsive and fun to drive and the illusion of greater power is very enjoyable.
