When you want a fast car that really performs on the road, you need to look BMW. BMWs are known for the highest quality of engineering, design, and performance when they come from the factory. So, little needs to be done to make them greater than they already are. All of the BMW luxury brands offer 0 to 60 in 6.8 seconds or less, but the production car BMW that is absolutely the fastest is the M5 with acceleration from 0-60 in 3.1 seconds!
So, what if you own a BMW that is already fast from production, however, you would like to enhance that speed? Are you this kind of enthusiast? If so, what are your options? How can you improve the car’s performance? The answer to these questions is performance tuning. Look no further because Triangle Imports offers performance tuning services on several brands of cars–Audi, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, and BMW.
Performance tuning improves the systems in the car by modifying the manufacturer’s vehicle computer data. A technician downloads the modifications via software to the Engine Control Module (ECM) by way of the OBD-II (On-Board Diagnostics). We’re all aware of the surface level indicators on the dashboard, especially the dreaded check engine light. But, there is a complex system of diagnostic signals that constantly monitor the health and performance of the vehicle and, by making alterations to this system, you can vastly improve your car’s performance.
When a car goes through aftermarket performance tuning, it is optimized for a different set of performance requirements than those it was originally designed to meet. You can customize your vehicle in order to achieve higher engine performance and dynamic handling as well as a smoother response.
Benefits of tuning your BMW
There is no doubt that BMWs come from the factory finely tuned. But, if you’re wanting to make yours even better, you may want to see what the actual benefits to a performance tuning service are. By having Triangle Imports do performance engineering on your BMW, you can see these benefits:
- Increased power
- Stronger torque
- Smoother delivery of power
- Sharper throttle response
- Faster acceleration
- Reduced number of gear changes
What happens during performance tuning?
Before beginning the tune, it is necessary to perform a diagnostic scan to determine whether there are issues that may affect the upgrade. Then, the relevant performance tuning software is uploaded to the vehicle through the OBD-II diagnostic port. Primarily, the tuning process involves electronic removal and re-installation of a more refined and enhanced version of programming for the computer. Because the ECM can’t communicate during the tuning, the fault memory is cleared and then rechecked when the tuning upgrade is completed.
Some of the BMW models that can have performance tuning include the X1, X2, X3, X4, X5, X6, X7, Z4, M models, i3, and i8.
Integrated engineering can also optimize your BMW’s performance. You can see these benefits with integrated engineering:
- Throttle response
- Rev limiter
- Fuel economy
- Use with 91 or 93 octane
