Yes the car is much improved but there are no straight and level roads anywhere nearby for some timings. I like the smooth progressive throttle response - all too often a remap will turn the throttle into an on / off switch.

12years ago I had a DS3 1.6THP 155bhp motor which was remapped to ~ 200bhp and the 116i feels similar.

I am fitting an oil catch tank this week.

(The DS3's motor blew and was replaced under warranty. The dealer told me that it was caused by a known fault - excessive crankcase oil fumes entering the combustion chamber and causing detonation. One piston was in pieces and other holed.)

Did you choose any of the options?
