2017 120i to get 125i power? same engine?

Post by CynicalRobot » Sat Jun 30, 2018 11:15 pm

Hi All,

I have been on the lookout for a 1 Series with the B48 engine and one has come up that i am interested in.

It is a 2017 120i with 181BHP / 290Nm


Seeing as its the same engine that is in the higher 125i model... is there anyway i can get that 120i to have the same power as the 125i? the 125i comes with - 221BHP / 310Nm i believe, i may be wrong though!

The spec of this 120i is just what i wanted and i dont really want to let it go and hope for a decent 125i to come up :?

I normally see 270-280bhp with 340ft of torque
Here a 220i with the same ecu as yours

If you google bwchiptune 120i 220i 420i reviews

The 220i b48 can still be remapped to the same type of power
