Remapping
« on: May 04, 2017, 10:41:21 PM »
Because the X1 is not as nimble as my 320d SE I was toying with the idea of remapping however can any of you knowledgeable folk enlighten me as to whether my car has the anti remap chip built in.

Hi

I don't know but I would recommend a quick call to Jason at BWChiptune link below

http://xdrivers.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,356.0.html

As he does a lot or work on members cars remapping them and he has a network of other garages that also do the remapping work up and down the country and he would be able to steer you in the right direction.

Hope that helps

Ours is out getting remapped right now - looking forward to the result. Should be circa 178bhp and 395nm - hopefully that will mean less cog swapping when out and about.

Well I've on;ly driven it a few miles but you can already tell that is now has the right amount of power - its not struggling with a lack of torque any more which I suspect is exasperated by long gearing.
