    thanks, and I wasn't meaning to knock your recommendation either, just speaking in general. That's why I dropped my original reply, but then I let myself get sucked back into the whirlpool [done]

    If Bexleys is who people use there and they have a good rep then they're likely one of the best places to consider, especially in this case given Jefrem's last explanation

    A friend will come bail you out of jail, but a TRUE friend will be sitting next to you in the jail cell saying, "Dude, that was focking awesome!"

      As Jefrem said - that's why I didn't get one of his chips. I eventually went to Bexleys (around 400 plus VAT I think) for a custom remap.

      It took all morning and made massive improvements in the midrange - see the scans in the gallery section. Even with only 1hp more at peak power, the improvement was substancial enough (on a completely standard engien with cats removed) that I knocked round 1.5 seconds off my hillclimb times (on 40 to 60 second runs).

      Even on a standard engine it's worth it. I even got improved fuel consumption (around 2 - 4 mpg) on normal driving.

        I live on the other side of London from Kent and I thought Bexleys was a mission. You came all the way from Scotland. You really must love that car.

        I guess I'm just lazy :p

          My car was initially mapped by a UK company with good reputation on BMW car club forum.
          I had it remapped by someone else while on hols in germany with a lot of experience. The ignition map he wrote from his experience
          (not beeing on the rollers at all!) did out perform the custom mapped chip on the rollers on the first run quite significant!

          I agree that on a fairly stock engine with all the components in reasonable condition a "of the shelf" chip can be suffient and be a good improvement. A 4cylinder 16 valve engine will only except a certain amount of advance with a certain petrol quality. Even custom mapping will not change that.

          Just my expereince with "specialists" charging a premium.


          Goodbye M3, you served me well.

            Jefrems normal chip will work no problem on the euro cars,
            assuming he has chips for the various common cam setups.
            All you have to do is change your engine coding
            connector to US map. Or he burns his map in
            the euro map location. his 93 aki chip should be good
            for our 98-100 RON gas.

                  Yes, this theoretically will work -- the burn-in to the Euro map location is the easiest from a consumer perspective. *BUT*, and this is a big one, we haven't tested that :-).

                    So lets test it, and open the doors to a wider European market for you my man.... :yeah:

                    I'm not clear on what's involved, but I'm game as long as I dont blow anything on my motor!
