    Hiya, have a new to me 55 plate 320i touring. Love it, even the abs unit has been good enough to die under warranty. But tempted by a remap. One outfit quoted me an extra 20 - 25 bhp. Is this realistic for a 4 cylinder non turbo petrol? It's a manual so I deal with 'flat spots' by changing down...

    I have noticed a funny thing. I usually drive rather slow and extremely economical. This is quite obviously not the best way to maintain good engine condition, so I clean the EGR valve and intake regularly. Every 2-3 months the car starts to emit a thick dark cloud somewhere around the peak...

    My turbo started to whine one miles from my destination today. When I arrived I was losing power over 1000 revs. It has a little power left, would it be ok to journey home at low revs for 150 miles (mainly motorway) or should I call the recovery truck?

    When the engine is warm, I only have to turn my key a bit to get the engine to fire up. However, I have noticed recently that when the engine is cold I have to turn the key fully round and hold it for about 5 or so seconds after the glow plug light goes out to get the car to start. This has...
