We are one of the biggest remapping agents in the South East.
Are you aware that the engine fitted to your car has had its power output intentionally restricted by BMW?
This is due to BMW having to cater for a wide range of conditions and various users throughout the world and as such have to make allowances some of the following examples:
[list_item]Some countries outside of Europe only supply low octane or sub standard fuels.[/list_item]
[list_item]Some vehicle owners do not stick to the recommended service schedules.[/list_item]
[list_item]High and low altitudes also have to be taken into account.[/list_item]
BMW intentionally restrict some engines via the maps they use for each product. A lot of the power plants BMW use are physically identical, the selected ECU tunes will raise or lower the power output to fit their market demand. Take the early Mini One and Cooper as a good example, these two vehicle have exactly the same engine but with a 25bhp difference in power output, this is purely a different ECU tune selected by BMW. We can take a Mini One over and above Cooper spec in the form of a remap giving it 30 additional horsepower.
The good news is these restrictions do not need to be kept in place on any of the BMW range. By removing these restrictions we can then optimise your vehicles engine to its full potential. This process is called remapping.
We remap the vehicles ECU (engine control unit) thus attaining a genuine increase in smoothness, driveability, throttle response, power, torque and MPG. The engine’s “flat spots” (usually two) that are purposefully engineered into the power curve at the factory (so as to pass emission and noise regulations at those particular RPM locations), these are also eliminated.
The new software can easily be reverted back to the factory map at any time.
Our remaps are invisible to a regular service centre, even your BMW dealer with their latest diagnostic equipment cannot identify our upgrade.
Vehicles that can be tuned via OBD (pre 2007) are charged at £359.00 inc VAT.
Vehicles that require ECU removal and bench flashing (2007 and newer) are charged at £550.00 inc VAT as additional labour is required for this new process.
So what’s the down side?
There quite simply isn’t one.
