I've heard the 3 litre BMW's can be remapped to almost 350bhp and still return 40mpg. You also get huge torque and very little lag.
Mine's the older e46 3L job, which shoves 205 out, and does 40 mpg, but the remap is supposed to give 265 and better mpg. The missus's dad has a 335d coupe, twin turbo with one coming in low, one high, 100% BMW tune and that thing is a monster... something like 300bhp, but something daft like 5 or 600 nm torque... and more mpg than mine!
... i have my eyes on it
