Thumbs up Mods

Chaps.. Summers approaching (well with what we had yesterday) and I'm in the mood to do refresh the car :-)

I am a bit bored and have the urge to do something fun with it. My main issue is speed, I want it a bit faster, but auto diesels off the mark are generally slow (at least the older models). What can I do to offset this?

Plan the following over the next few months:

1. Front lip /splitters
2. Remap (any issues with remap on auto diesel gearbox)... Anyone had this done to theirs before and if so, verdict?
3. LCI Lights + LED markers
4. 19" staggered BBS LM reps
5. Exhaust re-do

Any ideas what to start with & where to source from?

Wanted to see if I could jump on the coupe scene but unable to pin down any decent 3L diesel coupes m sport within a reasonable budget upto 17k.

Gracias.

Surely you can get a 330d M sport with sub 60k miles for 17k! I was seeing 335d's appear for that money albeit tired examples.

But.

Get back on EvoTechnik mate

And get BWchiptune to remap your car asap!

I hear you man. I will only take it to Jason given your recommendation when I get it remapped, but wanted to know if there were any issues with auto gearboxes? Yeah need to get back on EvoT soon bro. Will take a look at these options shortly too man - interested in some examples. I need something with more gut, more power - or else I need to keep myself busy with giving my current one a new look - preferably the 1st !!

The auto box will be fine. I'm getting my 335d remapped next month (fully auto) and have no concerns at all about it. With only half the power you've got no reason to be worried there

Hello,

For the LED markers get the MTEC V3 ones. I have just installed these on my car and they look amazing!! For the E92 they cost 100 but totally worth it. You can get them from

http://www.hids-direct.co.uk/


Also look on ebay for the back LCI lights, i have just bought a pair for 420 delivered

For the remap type emaps into google ans ask for a person called simon, he is really helpful and will give good advice

hope this helps Lee
