Had my 330d remapped

Went to Evolve yesterday to take advantage of their 350 remap/RR deal.

Car went on the rollers and produced 240.9bhp and 420 ft/lbs as standard.

Post remap, 291.5bhp and 510 ft/lbs

Initial thoughts;

- car just feels more alive as soon as you touch the throttle - way more responsive
- MPG - no idea, too busy nailing it lol
- Smoothness - not sure if I can feel a difference - not exactly rough before anyway!

OK performance-wise - I have to say that I have had remaps on other brands of turbo'd cars (Skoda/Volvo) and this one is by far the most noticeable over stock - the car is an absolute missile now - in any gear the thrust is amazing. It feels quicker than a standard 335d to me (ducks for cover) - but I need to compare it to a remapped 335d really...........

Imran and co did a superb job and they really know their stuff - highly recommended

Oh dear (digs into pocket in search of 350) can't hold back for much longer. Will be interested in MPG report once you clam down a bit!

Which map was this out of interest?

I'm not sure, I just said I wasn't after big numbers, I wanted similar driveability etc as the standard car, just more oomph.

They got it spot on!!

The 330D auto has the same box as the 335D so if the 335D can take it

What torque do you get from a remapped 335d ?

On average 700Nm but some maps go as high as 730Nm - which is probably the safe limit.

Good stuff MOB

I have shared in your delight when I got my 330d done - exactly the same views on the results as you - my MPG has improved slightly too (1 to 2 MPG)

Only issue I have is I do not know the bhp or lb/ft as I got someone to come to my work and had it done there (300) so no rolling road. I was informed it would be around 275ps and 450lb/ft but I really do not know as I asked for a safe map.

A more aggressive map was offered and from memory thought was around 290ps but I was more than happy with a safe 275ps

So, a couple of months on, are you guys still happy with the results of the remap?

I'm seriously thinking of getting on the 'phone to get mine booked in.

No problems with my map from Evolve, it hasn't missed a beat and I have pushed it as far as you can on the road.

I need to get it on a straight track and find the speed limiter

Do not hesitate - get it done

The car hasn't missed a beat, returns 2-3mpg more than before and is still bloody quick - the novelty hasn't worn off at all

I was doing 80mph (private road) the other day in the dry, booted it and the traction control light flickered for a bit
