    Hi.
    I've got a 1997 318is and i have heard you can remove the trip cap and increase the bhp by 40 for only £50.
    Can you really do this and if so does anyone know how to do it?

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Cheers!

    Isla Motorsport, welcome to the forum and it's great to see another newbie posting a thread.

    One thing I do know about gaining power from BMW's is that the BHP per pound sterling = Little BHP for LOT's of money.

    I've never heard of any normally aspirated car get anywhere near that sort of gain ( 7-10BHP more likely ) from a chip or remap and these procedures will cost anyhere between £300 upwards.

    Do you mind me asking where/who informed you of this. £50 for an additional 40BHP would be a steal so long as there was no risk of engine or componant damage.
