    I have 2.0L 318ci and I'm considdering a remap. I have a standard exhaust (thinking of fitting a less restrictive one) and no turbo/super charger so would it really be worth remapping? I've been informed that a remap on a normally aspirated engine will only give an extra 10 0r 20 bhp.

    cheers

    I would be surprised with 10-20 BHP TBH, gains on normally aspirated engines are normally small but the improvements are usually to be had in the way that it drives (loss of flat spots and better throttle response etc.)

    These 318i are miles better to drive after our remap
    Customers say it feels a lot light to drive or they are not towing that invisible caravan any more

    Thanks Kevin. Would you say it's worth a few hundred quid?

    I will check if our Bw Flasher unit covers your car
    If not PDT tuning can offer our Remaps and dyno testing in Newcastle or you could post the Ecu to me
