Great choice of car and colour you won't be disappointed.
I'm currently debating whether or not to have mine remapped.

No wonder I can't sell my DTUK tuning box if you don't even use them yourself.

I can see an inherent problem....the 1M being PETROL and DTUK selling DIESEL tuning boxes

However, Andrew sells the pedal boxes, so he is going to use a product he sells

....and he has in the past ran his DTUK boxes on several of his vehicles, the astravan, seat leon, vauxhall 4x4 ( can't remember it's name lol ), oh ..... And his 335d he had too

1M is petrol as said below

Btw in your for sale threads please don't state the box is covered under warranty as the warranty is not transferrable and only applies to the first owner from new.

I use our systems on our Navara, Leon and I'll be adding a pedalbox to the 1M.

But as the 1M is petrol, then I won't be adding a diesel tuning box to it..

Amar, check out www.pedalbox.com as I'll be adding one to mine this week..

We've had some fab feedback so far from BMW owners, so expect good things with the 1M
