Would like to say hello, as this is my first post.
Would like to share my experience of owning this fine driving machine.
This is my 4th E46, and managed to get a manual 2002 184bhp 4 door M sport with 115K.
I have had the car for a month and the power was rather disappointing and I had to push hard to get any decent acceleration.
I had spent weeks researching on getting the car remapped, as I have never had this done to any of my cars previously.
I took the plunge and took it to SP Tuning in Hinckley.
I was very impressed by there advise and honesty. A very helpful chap indeed.
My current figures on the dyno was showing 175 Ps with a torque of 375 Nm.
After the remap this took it to 216 Ps with a torque of 475 Nm.
The car is now completely transformed, and the in gear acceleration is sublime! It really does put a grin on your face :-)
Although there are companies out there that quote higher figures, I am more than happy with the result.
If you have a 330d, then getting it remapped is the best thing you can do to it!
