Had the Z4 mapped yesterday by these guys: https://www.peterborough-remapping.co.uk/ using Quantum software. So the 23i is improved from 201 to 225 ps. Not really stretched it yet but it certainly feels smoother. The other benefit of the mapping was we were able to go through and test/clear some historical fault codes :wink: A

Thanks pvr. That’s a fine garage you’ve got judging by your signature, even if one is out on loan

Hi, be interested to see what you think of the remap once you've had time to test it... not many have bothered with the 23i :thumbsup:

Thanks Baron, I’ll be sure to comment. Not sure there are that many E89 23is out there given it’s relatively short production run due to ‘improved’ engines. I think the amount of polish I’ve added has reduced drag, improved mpg and added 5 bhp by itself :rofl:

Have you got a dyno sheet you could post for us showing the before/after power curves?

Hi Rob.., sorry no dyno readout available, as the mapping was done on my driveway from a flashy laptop. The Quantum web shows that the upgrade is 201 to 225.

This week I’ve got the brakes being replaced - my discs aren’t great so I’ve planned to upgrade the discs and add some more attractive callipers at the same time.

I may yet rolling road it to both assess the mapping and the braking performance… A
