  1. BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    Hi Everyone, I recently bought a Superchips Bluefin for my 335d, about a month / 2500 miles after flashing my ECU I noticed some soot appear around the exhaust tips. Previously it had always been very clean, as you'd expect from a car with a DPF. There have been no warnings displayed on the...

  3. BMW 5 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 5 Series
    Tired to put back on the bluefin superchip after I have had the dpf removed. I think I followed the process correctly and the hand held device froze. I pulled out the obd wire and tried again only for the device to tell me not to carry on if the device is not registered to the car. As it was...

    I'm looking at remapping my 03 330d and, being in NZ, my only option is basically the Superchips Bluefin. Ive been reading about the different remaps but haven't found a lot to tell me about the Superchips. And yes I know to make sure maintenance is up-to-date; I'm working on getting the vortex...

    I am thinking of a remap for my 330d. Its done 160+k but it still goes well returning very good MPG. I am swaying towards Superchips' Bluefin - I already have an old bluefin plug in unit which I could get re-programmed making this a better financial option. The performance hike is 184 to circa...

    Is there anything to pick between the two?? Id be going for the Middle option of the three powers stated on Ecotune, which is most similar to the Bluefin gains. Just wondered if anyone would come up with a good reason for one manufacturer vs the other?? £365 for BlueFin and £404 quoted after...
  7. BMW ECU Tuning and Standalone Tuning
    Hi all, first post. Purchased a 320D M, It's my 2nd BMW used to own a 323i E36 many moons ago, the straight 6 engine was awesome. Anyway that all aside, I've done tons of research on remaps and whether to get it done by a company or handset, I've been eager to get some more grunt out of her...

    What are their maps like these days, do they do r&d, testing on individual maps available etc. ? seen a e60 td with one, but it wouldn't be my first choice of contact, but then again it's got to be better than the non name ebay ones. would it be worth another remap from the recommended ones on...

    So Superchips has been around for along time, but what are their current R&D, software like? Personally if I was to get a car mapped, I would choose the well known ones used by enthusiast on here. However, having seen a car advertised with it, should it be a cause of alarm bells? Or are their...

    Has anyone got experience of this product, had a quick search but didn't have any joy! Does it give a noticeable power increase and any ideas of the new 0-60 figures? Would you just leave it standard?
  11. BMW Tuning Forum
    Hi guys, I have a Superchips ECU and a BMC Carbon airbox which the previous owner installed about a year ago. I just have a few quick questions: Are the Superchip ECU's any good for the E46 330's? Or would I be better off getting a re-map from someone like E-maps? Would I notice any difference...

    I am thinking of getting this mod done to my E36 318is M44. Has anyone had it done and if so was it worth the money?? :optimist
  16. BMW Tuning Forum
    Does anyone have experience of Superchips Bluefin for BMW 330d ? The principle seems ideal - handheld device that allows the owner to remap the ECU or reset to the manufacturer map at any point. It's not a piggy back tuning box, so those potential issues aren't an issue. I saw an old post from...
