    That seems like a fairly significant increase.. as impressive as it is, I'd be worried about the longevity of the motor with those kinds of gains.

    You're probably right Jim, who knows.

    That's why I'm happy with only a Stage 1 remap, I'd prefer reliability in the equation, too.

    First mod;

    Both of my previous BMWs have had the coin cubby holes beneath the light switch. This one didn't come with one, and it's almost mandatory for me, so obviously that had to be fixed. Asked BMW in Dundee and Aberdeen, both said it couldn't be retro fitted. Fine, I'll do it myself!!

    Sorry about the crappy pictures.

    I gotta say, my heart was pounding, and a few people questioned what the hell I was doing. But hey, if it can be done, then why not eh haha

    I deliberately parked on the very other end of the Asda car park earlier today, where there was at least 5 parking spaces either side of me.

    Come back to my car, lo and behold, someone parked in the very next space. What is the logic here?
