World ECU remap specialist Superchips has introduced two more conversions for BMW models; the 2.0-litre turbodiesel engine and the range-topping M50d using the 3.0-litre turbodiesel.
Both engines are Euro6-emissions compliant and both use Bosch management systems. The 2.0-litre variant is the mainstay of the engine range and is found in a huge variety of the marque’s model ranges, including the 1-, 2-, 3-, 4- and 5-series. Developing 190PS from the factory, the Superchips remap adds a very useful 43bhp at 3247rpm and 94Nm torque at 3147rpm.
The three-litre engine, used in the X5 M50d model, leaves the factory with double the output of the smaller version but sees even more impressive gains from the Superchips remap. Power rises by 54bhp at 3402rpm while torque grows by a huge 111Nm, at the same engine speed.

Following the remap, drivers will enjoy greatly improved performance and acceleration, for a more rewarding drive and safer overtaking. They will also see benefits in driveability, with significant gains in mid-range torque. They can also expect to see up to 7% improvements in fuel economy, when compared with a similar driving style.
The conversion is carried out by one of Superchips’ nationwide dealer network and typically takes around an hour. Customers can either wait at the dealer or drop off their car and return later to collect. The cost of the remap on each engine is £399 including VAT and labour. The conversion is covered by Superchips’ 12-month/30,000-mile warranty*.
