I got my E90 320D 163 bhp remapped a couple of weeks ago, after the rolling road test mine was only actually running 149 bhp. The remap company said they had come across this before, apparently BMW release a load of detuned versions with lower emissions and bhp to market so company car users could pay less tax.

So i went from 149 bhp to 201 bhp, and 235 ft/lb of torque to 309 ft/lb of torque, and the difference is massive, i haven't had chance to test the economy properly yet as we have had nothing but ice and snow since i have had it done, its just cleared yesterday so i will get a better chance to test it properly now.

It's definitely worth getting done as it gives the car a new lease of life.
