Having recently introduced remaps for the 3.0-litre diesel and 1.6-litre petrol engines, global engine ECU remap specialist Superchips has released a conversion for the 1.6-litre turbodiesel engine used across the BMW 18d range.
Fitted to the 118d, 218d, 318d, 418d, 518d and the X3 18d and xDrive models, the engine releases 136bhp and 299Nm from the factory. However, the Superchips conversion adds 30bhp to this at 3908rpm and 56Nm torque at the same engine speed.
This not only provides each model with improved performance but also greater driveability and more relaxed cruising with the new power and torque curves following the originals perfectly.

In addition to the improved performance, drivers can also expect potential improvements in fuel economy of up to 7% when compared with a similar driving style.
The conversion uses Superchips’ EPC device which, when fitted to the vehicle, optimises engine fuel, ignition and turbo boost settings.
The device is fitted to the vehicle by one of Superchips’ nationwide dealers and the price of £449 includes labour and VAT. The conversion is covered by Superchips’ no-quibble seven-day money back guarantee and the device itself is also covered by Superchips’ product warranty*.
