    Hey everyone,

    Just wanted to introduce myself as I've just signed up after buying my 2004 320cd Sport last weekend. Its silver with black leather and some nice extras on it including heated seats and the Harmon Kardon stereo upgrade, which are definitely being appreciated already.

    I've already done my first mod with a set of black kidney grill's and am now thinking of a remap. I've come from a Honda S2000 so its feeling a bit sluggish at the mo

    No pics yet as the weather is so bad!

    Alex

    Haha I have done it by accident a couple of times, having to change up around the 4k mark before the engine runs out of puff is very different after being used to a power band that kicks in at 6250rpm and changing at the limiter on 9250rpm!

    The thought about a remap didn't last long, It's getting done next week

    I like the 'no brainer' decision making on the remap! Who's software will you be using?

    I was going to go for the Motech active map seeing as they are 10 mins down the road from me and come recommended.

    Before you do that, you need to get the swirl flaps removed and a new crankcase breather fitted. Both are engine killers when (not if) they fail.

    Yeah I've just read up on this today...by crank case breather is that what everyone is on about with the vortex oil filter/breather? I've seen that PMW do the clanking plates but have no idea which size I'll need and don't really fancy doing it on the drive with such cold weather :-/

    Maybe I should wait for the remap and do these first...I'll have to see if I can get it done locally cos otherwise I'll have to wait til it warms up a bit to do it myself.
