    Hi guys had my 2016 F80 M3 remapped this week. Firstly I’m not going to say who it was or what the exact figures were but it was from a reputable company and wasn’t a cheap £200 off the shelf jobby!

    Basically around the 500hp and 750Nm mark, however now it seems like the mid range is massive but almost to the point it’s no fun to rev it now. Seems to die above 5.5k, I know the boosted M3 don’t rev anyway but it seems more like a diesel with high RPM :muttley:

    Also the throttle response is ridiculous, to the point where I physically can’t modulate the throttle without it almost banging the drivetrain, like an on off switch.

    Anyone else had car mapped and experience similar symptoms, could be me being fussy. Gearbox is so pants too, like kangerooing even worse although I’m booked in with Henry for the CS/GTS gearbox and drivetrain map Saturday so that should smooth things out!

    Any feedback would be great. Cheers guys

    Who did you map with? I have previously had a remap from a large tuner from the UK (not Evolve) and changed to a US tuner who is popular on bimmerpost ([email protected]). While the original tune was similar to OEM, my current tune is even MORE drivable than OEM.

    I suggest it may be a good idea to ask for your money back, do a bit more research and go with someone else.

    Sounds like a GAD map

    I’d rather not say who done the map but who have you guys used in the UK?

    What makes you think it’s a GAD map?

    I had a GAD map. It was not bad at all! Its just the tune I have now feels more OEM. Absolutely nothing bad to say about GAD, in fact the opposite.

    So got the GTS map and other GTS settings and it’s changed the car! Not like night and day but made a big difference to drivability. Got a Chinese guy called Henry who came to me and done a complete flash of gearbox / diff / traction / steering plus few other program features!

    Can you pm me the guys details as I’m looking for similar updates to my car as the current setup is also very on off the throttle when in full M modes

    I have just had it mapped very happy with it but he wouldn't do the gearbox flash as he said it's a bit risky if it goes wrong but maybe would like to contact Henry too

    Awesome! For sure transforms the car. Miss mine so bad, broke my ankle so can’t drive it for at least 6 weeks now! :(

    Message Henry directly via WhatsApp his number is 07985*232591. He can do it remotely if you order the cable, you drive to him near north London or he can come to you depending on location. I went with comp pack traction settings and GTS for everything else although I’m going to change to CS for gearbox as the GTS is still a tad aggressive! Enjoy :D

    Who done the map if you don’t mind me asking? Weird they said to not do the gearbox map when it’s actually the same map as BMW load into the CP / CS and GTS models

    Look in the F80 forum for the thread regarding Henry... and then contact Zed coding.
