BMW stands for “Baertschi Motoren Werke GmbH” which roughly translates to the “Bavarian Engine Works Company”.  Known for their high-quality manufacturing of vehicles in all categories, from day to day to high performance BMW is one of the most popular brands in the world.

The benefit of BMW having great production quality is that many of their cars are still on the road today.  It’s not uncommon to see a BMW e30 model or older still cruising around, going about their day-to-day business.

BMW performance cars often outlast many other brands. The incredibly popular e36 m3 has a reputation to this day of one of the best driver’s cars in the world.

Models such as the e46 m3 were designed with performance in mind but had the drivability and safety measures in place so that an inexperienced driver could use it daily (which many did and still do!).

These are only a few of the popular BMW models, the list is vast and includes diesel models like the 335d and all M models (M2, M3, M4, M5, M6) to name a few.

BMW Diesel Tuning

BMW diesel vehicles are a favourite when it comes to tuning. Not only is there a diesel option for nearly every model in the BMW range, but the tunability of the engine often allows large power and torque increases with some simple modifications.  Making tuning BMW vehicles more attractive is that in most cases the large power and torque changes often can leave the vehicle with reasonable fuel economy! Some of the 335d engines are considered by some as the best balance of performance and fuel economy and are used by many performance car enthusiasts as “daily driving” cars. On the flip side some consider this their engine of tuning choice when it comes to performance tuning. The TDI engines (Turbo Diesel Injection) comes with options of straight 3, 4 and 6. A great example of simple modification creating dramatic increases in power in the BMW TDI engine is performing a remap of the ECU alongside a rolling road dyno analysis.

The 2012 onwards model of the BMW 335d, with remap of ECU changes BHP from an already respectable 308bhp to near 400bhp and torque from 465ft/lb to 570ft/lb! This alongside most reporting an economy in the 30mpg (if driving sensibly). This modification does need to be carried out using a dyno/rolling road to ensure the map is correct for that vehicle but is considered a simple upgrade with huge benefits in performance.
