From there they adjusted the file and sent it back. Been running tune for about a month now and had no issues what so ever. I do notice the tune not liking the heat in Brisbane ATM (40c temps) but then again any car feels a little slower in those temps. The cost in my opinion was outrageous $2000 Australian but I would have had a massive markup as no one tunes 130s in australia. Even factoring in the cost I'm glad I did it. Made the n52 complete as a daily/ weekend mountain thrasher.
would u consider the tune a better mod then say a Header/catless exhaust manifold?

I can't really comment what would be better as I haven't put a exhaust on my 130i

What I can tell u though is u should never ever remove your cat from a n/a engine it removes a massive chunk of low down power for very little gain.

What the remap does do is give u what the car should have came with from factory a engine that revs freely to 7k which makes the mountain runs so much more enjoyable. I must admit I am starting to look at bmw exhaust and intake but think I will decide against it as the car depreciates faster then I can drive it in Australia.

I paid 2k Australian and do not regret the decision it doesn't give you that much power gain compared to 135i tune but it does make the car feel very special to drive through the mountains ( got to love a n/a 6 reving freely through the mountains ).


If your looking for a car that u can boast to your friends how u have the most power don't even bother touching the 130i sell it and get a 135i


P.s I noticed you own a 128i it may be worth looking into intake and exhaust I believe you guys have a revised system to the 130i

I can now report my experiences with fuel economy as it has been a couple of months with the dms remap. I drive the car pretty hard so I average about 9-10l per 100 but when I did a fuel conservative run to the Gold Coast ( 150km from Brisbane at speeds of 100-110km an hour) I managed 6.2 -6.5l per 100 and 7.2-7.5l per 100 on the way back . In my opinion I don't think it's affected fuel consumption in any way. It may have even improved economy. The drive was performed with ac on at 25c. outside temperature of 35c Celsius
