Im 99% sure E90/91/92/93 are all the same engines so yes you will find a remap for your E90. If you have a look round there's a lot of mention around the site of who the reputable remappers are.

There is no more poke with a 325d in comparison to the 320d in the real world in my opinion.

I set out looking for a 325d M Sport but after driving a few alongside the 320d M Sport, it just didn't make any sense to me (apart from sounding a bit better).
Seriously???

When I got my 320D, I felt the need for more power 1 week later. With the 325D I've owned it for 5 months now and still don't feel the need for more power.

I test drove the 325D, 330D and 335D before opting for the 325D. In the end, I had to get realistic and insurance/tax/running cost wise i opted for the 325D. The 325D gets about 3mpg less than my 320D on a like for like run. I'm happy with that kind of loss for a 6 pot diesel which sounds fantastic for a diesel and has more than enough power for urban/motorway drives imo.

In short i'd pick the 325D any day over the 320D.

Having had a 320D with performance pack over last 4 years I love it but not a day goes that I wish I went for the 325D/330D. back then I didnt as est milage would have killed me sods law turned out to be not even 50% of the estimated but at least get 48/50 on good ave runs.
