This is an opportunity for anyone throughout the UK and Europe to get their hands on the Maxitune software & hardware combo!You can take full advantage of our dyno developed software and hardware upgrade for the 136hp version of the E46 BMW 320D to a white knuckle 178bhp with a rear end hopping 370nm of torque! That's more torque than you will find the the E46 3.2 Litre M3!
What's even more astonishing is that if you drive the car normally on a day to day basis then you will enjoy improvements to the fuel economy. This is due to optimising the fuel quantity, injection timing and fuel pressure during light to medium throttle positions which ensures a cleaner more complete combustion.
What's in the package?
- 316 Stainless Steel Decat Downpipe (Required to reduce exhaust gas temps)
- Maxitune software credit (Redeemed via e-mail)
- iFlash 2 OBD diagnostic programming tool with cables and PC software.
Stainless Steel Downpipe
Built for performance, economy and longevity!
Performance - You will enjoy reduced turbo lag and a noticeable performance difference throughout the entire rev range! The original downpipe has a near 90 degree angle into a restrictive "heat soaked" cat which is replaced with a smooth bend and unnecessary under bonnet heat is reduced. Turbo lag is reduced and the reduction in turbo temperatures has a direct effect on the air intake temperature. This promotes a cleaner burn and with the correct software, a higher power remap can be applied safely in the knowledge that your turbocharger is running cooler.
Economy - You will experience around a 2 MPG improvement over the original restrictive catalytic convertor depending on your driving style due to the reduction in your turbo and intake temperatures.
Longevity - Your upgraded dowpipe is over-engineered in 316 Marine Grade stainless steel and the flexible coupling in 304 Grade stainless steel, your new downpipe should outlast the life of your vehicle. You should also expect your turbocharger to have a longer life as temperatures are greatly reduced.
Perfect Fit - This downpipe was carefully developed using the Genuine BMW factory item as a template then improvements were made to flow where possible.
Noise - The only difference to the sound from your exhaust is a very gentle whistle from your now de-restricted turbocharger. This in no way has an effect on the exhaust note.
Quality - Built with over 20 years experience in all kinds of fabrication and welding you can be assured that the quality of your new performance downpipe will be second to none!
Guarantee - A lifetime guarantee is offered on the pipework and as the uprated stainless steel coupling is a flexible part, we offer a two year warranty on the flexi section.
iFlash 2 OBD Programmer Device
The iFlash 2 is a cutting edge ECU programming tool which allows our customers to read and write their Ecotune calibration to their vehicle at their leisure. The iFlash 2 allows our customer to choose which software to load onto their vehicle depending upon the hardware modifications installed. Various ECU calibrations are available depending upon your requirements.
The programming process is carried out using the touch screen colour display with clear step by step on-screen instructions. The built in diagnostic fault code reader allows you to read and self-diagnose faults then erase the codes once repair has been carried out, switching out engine management light and perhaps saving a trip to the dealer.

- Customers who are concerned that their dealer may detect modified software can use the iFlash to program their car back to standard before servicing.
- You can set your vehicle to a more suitable map for other drivers in the household.

- Vehicle coverage is second to none in the owner operated tuning tool market and it is highly likely that your iFlash will be compatible with your next car. PLEASE NOTE: You must program the original vehicle back to stock settings before your iFlash can be configured for another vehicle. A 50% discount will then apply on the software for your new car making your next remap much more cost effective.
- A built in diagnostic fault code reader allows you to read and self-diagnose faults then erase the codes once repair has been carried out switching out engine management lights. This will save you the high cost of taking the vehicle to the dealer.
