In my case it was just an ECU flash.

Wow.

Anyone know of any US based tuner doing this?

Hope to go from 248 BHP and 420 NM to 340 BHP 550 NM.

Will update this thread regards the before and after changes and what it feels like to drive.

Being completed by BMWorkshop.ie a very reputable independent shop here in Ireland.

No haven't got a way of doing that apart from eyeballing it in a watch or phone. Is there any free apps?

Will try next time I'm out.

Did a few runs today see video below, it's around 0-60 in 4.5 seconds on relatively flat or slightly uphill road. I can't help but lift off very slightly at about 40mph as the gear shifts.. tried 3 times…brain is pre programmed to treat the engine nice so could be even less😂

Over 600nm of torque and about 330bhp on the sport dials but should be getting 360 per the remap so not sure what's happening there could be due to ambient temperature.

Lot of fun but not what I remapped for, I find the power delivery from 80 up to be great and more useful in normal driving for overtaking etc.

Car just pulls all the way up to max speed.

Standard fuel in ireland think that's 95 octane

No idea of it can be done remotely but sounds like a bad idea corrupt map or similar could happen

That's amazing. Really amazing. I have a LCI with extra boost when they crack the code for that version, I will remap it. It will be a beast.

UMB the guy who did it for me is either polish or Lithuanian can remember has a large BMW Indy garage in Dublin.

I bet he has friends in mainland Europe that can do this also, could be a nice road trip for you, they use some UK companies remaps can't remember who.

May be worth you contacting them via Facebook and asking, at. Minimum you can find out what maps they use.

I am based in Denmark and we have a lot of tuning companies.

I am waiting for them to crack the code for the LCI with extra boost it should be a monster.

Anyone with a B48 or B58 should look into MG Flasher.
Its an app that lets you do all the flashing you want. For example if you have to go back to the dealer you can flash it to stock and then later flash back stage 1 or 2 and you can do this as many times as you like.
Buy their flasher licence, stage 1 or ots maps and an obd adapter or if you have an enet cable you can use that.
Plenty of option that you have full control over from cat delete, remove vmax, change sports gauges, burbles etc.
We have a edrive group here in Ireland and the majority have mg flasher and even some switched from other tunes to mg.
