    Hi all, I've got a 320D coupé (2008) and I'm wondering what tuning mods will give me that bit of extra power even with an auto box. Problem is I've just taken a new job which means I'll be on the road a lot so MPG is a factor too. I've looked into a remap which seems good but I wanted to see what you guys thought.

    Thanks

    i recently got a remap by quantum tuning , its far better more driveable at lower speeds and a lot more torque but it has slightly lowered my fuel economy, could be my driving style has changed could be the map has been set to max power at the expense of fuel efficiency
    not sure but do these cars have a dpf or just a cat , looked at a decat ? more power but wont affect fuelling
    also a front mount intercooler or a larger capacity standard fitment one ?

    A re-map is only thing to do that will make a big impact on the cars power and drivability.. You will also see a gain on MPG too..

    We charge £240.00 for the 2008 177hp cars..


    Thanks Mike

    Thanks, a remap is the confirmed way to go then. You guys at Motech seem to be cheaper than I have been previously quoted so i'll be calling you soon.

    Just remember to get it all done how you want first..no sense mapping then decating and wanting to remap again etc...i have this dilemma on bikes, even a street tyre vs track tyre affects power readout as there's more tread on the street tyre meaning more weight is spun etc...

    as a minimum on bikes before I'd map I'd change sprockets and chain(as I intend to so i'd do it first before remap) get the tyres you want on, rims you want(I stick to standard as honda rims on their bikes are the best in the market in terms of stock lightweight rims), I make sure its full of shell vpower(so they're mapping it to shell vpower not tesco shit), get any jet kits etc on and anything internally in the engine(if you do engine stuff I don't on bikes not got that kind of money) THEN I would go for a map, then the bikes neares to end result in terms of the 'power chain' fuel/engine/sprocket/chain/sprocket and finally to tyre

    im an&l like that

    I also make sure they don't strap it down too hard(affects reading and can make you think its gone up in power) and make sure to get an air/fuel ratio with the changes on so you know they're actually tuned it rather than just forced more fuel through showing more power or whatever other tricks there are out there

    anyway im ranting...lol
