    Hi all!
    Im fairly new to this forum :/ but obv i joined for a reason

    Yesterday as some of you may know was eid (muslim religious day) and i went to a family outing. My cuzion has a honda civic type r 2007 completley stock, and yes we had a few drag races along a nice empty road inbetween lengthy traffic lights. I took him first time round, however it ended up in me being demolished!
    as far as paper goes, my 530d should produce 193 bhp 0-60 in around 8.0 seconds? and his type r 201bhp 6.6 seconds.
    he isnt the race driver of the year so i reckon if i was to remap my 530d to arround 244bhp (quote from celtic tuning) it could take him?
    im not looking for any superchargers or any other mod, just a simple remap to push my car and give it abit of oomph! lol
    mine is tiptronic, so i guess i could take him? any ideas if this is possible or where to get a remap done.
    also I wouldnt like to touch the ecu due to hearing its not a good idea!
    and ideas would be helpful! thanks

    Remap,induction kit,free flowing exhaust would free up enough for what you need

    Plenty of well respected people advertise on this forum like motec,the end etc

    Hi, thanks for the reply...
    I just emailed a person who does remapping. My bmw has 115,000 miles on the clock former company car... i dont suppose you'd know if my car would be able to handle the remap?
