Yes it does. The engine is much nicer to use afterwards - the power and torque gains are just a bonus :-)

On your website it states that any changes made are only visible to the customer and yourselves! With that in mind, would a re-map to get the smoother running, etc, invalidate any existing BMW guarantee, or would BMW simply not know that a remap had taken place, unless they looked at the mapping and didn't recognise it as theirs?
I'm quite interested in having it done  :002:

Hi,

Our work is invisible to BMW dealers and cannot be overwritten by them, so you will keep your factory warranty :-)

Cheers,

Mark.

Just a heads up for you guys who might be keen on a little home work he's up front no smoke and mirrors and no bullsh#t.

Are you suggesting that Hilltop is all smoke and mirrors and bullsh#t?

We're definitely not!  I don't know a thing about BSD so I don't have anything to say about them either good or bad, but - unlike some other tuners - I've not come across anyone slating them so that must be a good thing I guess. Anyway, here's what our customers say about us:

https://www.google.co.uk/#q=hilltop+motorcycles&lrd=0x4877503da26811ff:0x9638f0008c332a5a,1,&spf=1494864828852

https://uk.trustpilot.com/review/hilltopmotorcycles.co.uk

https://en-gb.facebook.com/pg/hiiltop.dyno/reviews/

I might be a teeny bit biased but I believe we're the best in the world at what we do. When I talk about our work I use the term 'remapping' because it is commonly understood, but technically we don't remap; we write engine management software - from scratch - and a lot of work goes into it. Because we write our own stuff rather than hack the OE software we're not stuck with any legacy issues and this results in (in my opinion of course) a better product for the customer. That's also one of the reasons why our stuff is invisible to the manufacturer and why we're not at risk of bricking an ECU with our work.

Cheers,

Mark.

Hi Mark
I'm sure you've already told us how much for the re-map but I can't find it on the forum. I live in the North East so it's a good run to Brum for me. How long for the process? Cheers

What I'm suggesting is you do your home work I've visited both,know the difference between a full remap and having your ignition advanced.

This is only for boxers but the principal is the same www.BoxerPerformance.com you will see rocket sprockets that advance the timing and the performance they give but there is a separate part about fuelling on a modern day ECU all in one map but just from the link you can see that advancing the ignition will make a difference!!!

It didn't come across as suggesting people do their homework, it came across as a veiled pop at Hilltop,
