New here and advice please

Hello,

Iím new on here but have owned my 325d for about 9 months now. I love the 6 pot motor.

Iíve been reading a lot of the discussions on here about remaps and think it may be time to take the plunge.

My BMW used Warranty runs out in October so I am planning on booking one in for then.

Has anyone on here used P Torque in Wolverhampton? Iíve heard good things about their remaps and theyíre fairly local.

Also does anyone have any advice on what BHP is optimum on these? I donít want to go mad and put everything under maximum pressure. The car is my daily drive and I cover about 15k a year.

Any advice is much appreciated. Mines a 2010 Lci with 40 odd thousand on the clock. I don't have many good photos yet but i have posted one below (hope it works).

Thanks

Nice car. Is it the M57 or N57 engine?

If its N57, then the gains are fairly high with a remap.

I read a lot of positive comments about AC Speedtech (is it Andy?!?) on the Fat Datsun forums.

When i had my 2007 E91 335d (2008-2010) I had a unit from Imran at Evolve which allowed you to change the maps yourself and remap if the dealer wiped it etc. But i'm not sure what the latest and greatest. It was an off the shelf map admittedly and not done on a dyno - so pretty safe. But then that's the way i like it generally!

Yep spot on it is Andy, the map he put on mine was replacing a very poor 1 from the previous owner, won't name them but it is the big 1 in Essex.

Over fuelling and to much boost and it was dyno'd 3 times.

The map andy has devolped over 2 years of testing and tweaking the difference to the old map is massive.

he 100% knows his stuff.

I seen evolves m3 at Santa pod couple of months ago. What a machine that was.

Thanks for the recommendations. Who do people insure with?

I'm with Admiral who i have just spoken with and apparently they won't insure anything over a 25% increase in power.

Also with Admiral preparing for the 3 stage upgrade on a 325i, so I'd also be interested if I'm going to have to swap insurers after doing this.

I'm tempted to do the upgrade with out the remap until my renewal is up. From what I've read, it will give a boost in lower end torque but not overall HP.
