TDI-TUNING box

Hi there,

I have just sold my f31 335d in order to purchase a 2016+ f80 M3 that I am still to source.
I had a tdi tuning box on my 335d as wanted to keep it removable for warranty etc. I can get this reprogrammed with the f80 software and wondered if anyone here had used one of their boxes on an m3/4??
I know it is far inferior over a remap but for 130 odd quid thought it may be a start while I get the exhaust and a few other bits done initially.

Be interested in your thoughts

Regards

I certainly have!

It's a great box to be honest and the ability to turn it up/down is a dream. My CP car dyno'd at 507 bhp so quite respectable.

I've just bought the BootMod3 license for OBD mapping from home - hoping for good things.

Not sure how the 335d box connects, the M3 version has 2 boost connectors and, I assume one fuel so I think it's likely to be a different loom too.

My box will be up for sale soon so if you end up selling the 335 box and want another, let me know.

Thanks for the info. I emailed them and they said it was fine to do. There are 3 connectors on the box.

Did it make a noticeable difference on the car?

Cheers

Oh yes!! Huge difference.

The map is smoother but the box is great bang for the buck.

Did you not need a new wiring harness?

Sorry to be ignorant in this but what's the difference between bootmod3 and the TDI Tuning box and why did you swap the former for the latter?

Cheers MarkG_M3CP
