Just out of interest can you use the iFlash unit to return your car to stock if needs be?

What increases are claimed for Ecotune?

Yes you can. Check out the ecotune website for power increases; on a 143hp 118d the increase is by something like 40hp

Thought I'd give you guys an update on our remap. Bought the Ecotune iFlash unit (118d) and put the reflashed map onto the car yesterday afternoon.

WOW!!!

I wish we'd remapped the car sooner! It's so much smoother, with way more power lower down the revs and keeps pulling right the way up! Drove back on the coast road from Scarborough to Guisborough last night and I LOVE 3rd and 4th gear for those cheaky little overtaking manouvers! Best thing we've done in a long while!
If you're hesitating about getting your 1-er remapped, DON'T!! Just do it!! I won't mind driving the Beema now when the other halfs got the JCW! :P

Thanks to Stan for all his help with this! 8) 8)

I think stig123 has a 123d with ecotune map on.

I have a 123d but I only received the maps today. I had hoped to fit my dpf delete pipe over the weekend but didn't get my map in time, so dunno when i'll have time to fit it.

I asked if I could get the ecotune map with the DPF turned on for the short term as I cant run the DPF off software with the DPF still on the car, but Stan said he would have to charge me for that.

A little harsh if you ask me. If you pay for say an ecotune map, I would have expected you could have that level of map with either DPF on or DPF off and not have to pay extra. Others might see it differently like.


I'l report back when I get things sorted

I'm a little confused about your situation. But it seems you want two maps for the price of one. Or want him to reprogram your ECU twice. When I finally get my reprogram, I'm sure at some point BMW will overwrite it since I'm still in a sort of "new" car. Then I have to pay Stan a small fee to put the tune back in. This is normal.

It's more work you can't just add and remove DPF without changing some of the turbo parameters. Just be a little patient or hurry up and get your downpipe fitted! Can't be that hard I've had mine off takes about an hour or two from start to finish!

And speaking of downpipes just got mine in the post! yay! probably have to wait till Friday to fit it though as it's gonna be raining maybe and I need to get a Lambda sensor and also need to get the map off the car hope it's the right one and wait for Stan to work his magic!
Just wondering as mines lost it's original map wonder if same engine and same turbo from Marco's car would have the same oem map? At least I'd know I had the right one then!

Should do, I think. Make sure it's the correct one though as I think he runs a Bluefin.

Let us know how you get on. It will be interesting to see if the dealer finds the map or says anything. I wonder if the ECU will come back protected?

Has this group buy ended now?
If so, I would like to lock this topic as there is another group buy going on @ 20% and I don't want people to get confused.
Please let myself and the mods know if this has now finished

thanks

Hi Colin. Yes, this group buy is now over but we were going to use the thread to report our experiences. Would you like me to change the title to avoid any confusion with the other thread or would you like us to report our experiences in a new thread?

had a good chat with the service rep today after all was complete,
my early 2008 123d did not need a software update!
standard scope was carried out but no such remap file was recognised

i will be programming the ecotune file back on tomorrow

happy days :D

Got the downpipe fitted was a bit of a struggle but got it on in a couple of hours, biggest increase is in noise though lol! Don't fit one of these unless you have std exhaust or aftermarket one with a good large middle silencer never would have thought cat takes out so much noise! With a straight through exhaust its like a evil tractor on smack sounds so loud but in a good way lol I may have to think about putting a middle silencer or back box on now lol! I know its flowing better and reducing heat on turbo so won't be putting cat back on but it had such a nice sound before with cat and straight through system attached. At idle and low revs and part throttle its loud but ok but open it up at 2500 its seriously loud just like the touring car diesels! Been tinkering with some of the map options Stan has sent me so far impressed with mpg even on maxitune map is good but the smoothness and delivery of power is really well done previous map from sanspeed was jerky at low revs smoked badly when u put your foot down which got worse with the heat were ting now and also was getting transmission shudder when inph all thisas gone pwer and torque. It's definately on same level with dms map in all areas but without too aggressive boost level which was killing my turbos!
