Just wondering about your remap. Is such a mild remap noticeable and who did you use?

I think my 330 could use a few more beans!

A question for everyone with a remap in the UK: how do you handle warranty issues at the dealer? In the U.S., a big fear is having the dealer threaten to deny warranty work because of the presence of a tune, thus typically over here the owner will remove evidence of the tune, and erase all codes before going to the dealer.

Are your remaps such that they cannot be detected by the dealer? We have a tuner in the U.S. that uses a German tuner that claims this is the case. Or - do you remap after the factory warranty has lapsed, thus bypassing the issue entirely?

I ask because we d owners in the U.S. do not have the plethora of choices you seem to have over there, and I personally would like to know what kind of options we might potentially have going forward. Thanks!

Our 330d being a lease car with 3 year warranty - it has no modifications as I do not know where I stand regarding voiding the warranty and the lease contract.

Yes, definitely feel the difference especially 3000rpm. With 20% more torque you would be hard pressed not to feel the difference. Done by P-Torque near to Wolverhampton.

Car not under warranty now so not an issue

What about the 6spd Manual? Can that take more or less than the Steptronic?

Less, but can't remember the exact figures but 560nm rings a bell. 330d auto box same as 335d and yes 700nm the upper limit.

560? Blimey its fairly pushed at the current 520NM then... The new 30d pushes out 560NM. Hmm... surely it must be a bit higher than that!

i had my leon tdi hybrid tuned by will at p-torque..very good at what he does
does he do more agressive maps?or is that the most youll be looking at in a 330d?

i have a 55 plate 330d and am wanting 280bhp ish and 420lbft ish?
is that safe on a manual gear box?

It does add up that 560NM is the limit for MT.

Ok...

how about these guys then...

http://www.remapsuk.com/blog/?p=67

From the article they are saying that they recommend ecu or ecu performance tune for the manual gearbox...

That said i did not know the torque figure but im sure that the ecu performance map that adds 48HP on top lifts the torque above 560nM...

Having owned a plethora of Duramax trucks the past 7 years, I've owned 'programmers' for each, and the market for such items is flooded. You simply plug the programmer into the OBD2 port, and answer some questions. I also had one on a Boss 302 I just got rid of. On a stock 360hp Duramax engine, you LITERALLY can choose from an honest+ 90hp all the way to +300hp. Obviously you gotta rebuild your trans with hi-po internals if you choose above +120hp, but that's not my point. My point is, why hasn't any company released the same thing for the 335D? I realize there's a lot of shops out there that make a killing on mapping ECUs, but they can survive with these things on the market. As most people know, a map made for YOUR particular car is going to be more efficient than a pre-loaded map on a programmer, and in fact, these programmers make it easier for the techs to remap your ECU(the Mustang tuners use 'em almost exclusively). Either way, having the ability to do everything from adding hp, firming up shifts, calibrating your speedo for over-size tires, raising the rev-limiter(if you want to), changing or eliminating your top speed limiter, and best of all, putting it back to stock in 2 minutes for when you take the car in for service. Heck...some of these programmers even come as a package that has a plethora of electronic guages on the screen, which allows you to view (usually) 4 items at once. i.e boost, EGT, water temp, oil temp, voltage, fuel pressure etc...you simply choose the 4 you wanna monitor at any given time, and you get a graphic on the screen that mimics actual guages. Of course for all this to happen you need to keep the thing plugged into your OBD port, but as usual you simply unplug and remove it when you take the car in.
I had a Chevy HD 3500 dually crew cab 4wd, which was lifted 6" and had 35" tires. With a programmer, turbo-back exhaust(turbo's often quiet down the exhaust noise to the point where no muffler(s) are needed, and cars next to you can't tell otherwise), and cold air intake. That truck weighed almost 9,000 pounds, and it pulled 13.6s in the 1/4.
With the car(the US 'D') now being in it's 3rd model year, I figured companies would have flooded the market with these things by now. Unfortunatley all I've seen is one piece that you install inline somewhere, and it's no-where as accomodating as the ones for diesel pickups. Could be 'cuz the market for diesel trucks here is a LOT bigger than it is for diesel BMWs, but that doesn't excuse why Euro companies haven't done it. In Euroland, diesel's are more common than gas-burners I'm told..
I know people are scared about BMW being aware that the ECU's been 'tampered' with, and thereby canceling their warranties, but FEDERAL LAW mandates that if a breakdown occurs and the dealer or manufacturer blames it on a mod the owner did, he burden of proof that this is actually what happened IS ON THE DEALER/MANUFACTURER. They cannot deny warranty coverage simply because you 'modded' your car. Of course you want to use a product produced by a company with a good repuation-and hopefully one that stands behind breakdowns caused by their unit(s), as if you do experience a breakdown caused by your pogrammer, it IS your responsibility.
Just my $.02
