The owner of these is also a member of this site Andrew@DTUK I tried one myself on my old SEAT Leon and was very impressed with them! According to their site, if you buy one and you're not satisfied you get your money back simples. But trust me you'll be very happy!

They pedal box has just been updated to V3



They improve the performance, but DONT increase horsepower

Weve added them to 1.0 Corsa's Ford RS's our own TTRS's and my 1M

The difference they make to the cars is great..

ignore the pricing in Germany, as i know a man with a dog lol

Garage List
Are these basically the same as sprint boosters with a bit more adjustability?

They just alter the positional data of the pedal don't they?
To emulate a 'curve' on the pedal response, like reverse exponential on R/Control sets?

No idea why they are so expensive if thats all they do...

Basically if you have pressed the pedal to 50% the box tells the computer it has been pressed 75% or so so you will get 0.1 sec improvement from 0-62mph or so Its worth a try !!!

Can you use this along side a diesel tuning box and would you see much benefit having them both if you can?

I think you can use both, there wouldnt be any problem. Tuning box gives upto 40% more BHP/Nm dependng on car and box. The pedal box does not increase BHP/Nm, just gives you more response which could affect in slightly better acceleration but you will not notice it almost at all - just like sport air filters. The response will be felt

We use them on our navara diesel and merc cls, and seat Leon as a combo set up, and the drive ability is fantastic.

Everyone is sceptical until they try one.

It certainly has livened the 1M up quite a bit

Next mod is looking like a map from Evolve

I would agree with this, I was sceptical but I've just fitted one to my 330d auto and I have to say they are very impressive!
It feels like a different car with much more power! Gone is the initial hesitation when in drive and you put your foot down to pull away or overtake something.
I've only got it on the Sport setting(there's also Sport+ and Eco settings) and I've turned it down a notch also on the fine adjustment and even on this setting the difference is like night and day!

If your in any doubt about how good they are I would say try one you wont be disappointed!
Plus I must add Andrew is great to deal with and very helpful.

Are these individual for each engine - or is there just one for the 3 series 9x? Any difference on LCI or pre-LCI?

Was my question too! Looks straightforward on the website, but how easy in practice?

Also is this available for 325i?

The systems are pedal specific, so the same kit works on all BMW, Mini and some Range Rovers.

If you drop an email to

andrew(at)dieseltuninguk.com

i can email you the fitting instructions over.

And theyre available fo all petrol and diesel bmw's from 1999 onwards.

Seriously thinking about buying one.Looks quite straight forward to install,but I was waiting for some feedback from anyone with a 335d.
I might have to be the guinea pig!
