    Remapping

    Easy DIY installation within 10 min. No mechanical knowledge or special tools are required. In contrast, the process of remapping is very time consuming and may damage the ECU.

    RaceChip

    Remapping

    RaceChip as well as remapping use software to get the best performance out of the hardware (engine). If durability is relevant, the results are usually the same, because they are only limited by the available power reserves.

    Remapping

    If you want, you can further adjust the individual software to your needs after installation e.g. via the RaceChip Smartphone App. Remaps are set in stone and not adjustable.

    Safe Engine Warranty

    RaceChip

    Remapping

    RaceChip products comprise an engine warranty of up to 2 years. Moreover, the manufacturer’s engine hardware remains unaltered. Remapping leads to a loss of the manufacturer’s warranty.

  • Easy Reset to

    Easy Reset to Factory Setting

    RaceChip

    Remapping

    In contrast to remapping, a RaceChip can be removed in a few minutes (e.g. before a service) in order to reset the car to the factory setting. Our tuning can’t be overwritten during a service. It can be reprogrammed and transferred to another car.

Plug & Play in 10 Minutes

RaceChip

Easy DIY installation within 10 min. No mechanical knowledge or special tools are required. RaceChip works right out of the box.

Remapping

The process of remapping is very time consuming and may damage the ECU, if done wrong.

All Power reserves activated

RaceChip

Uses software to get the best performance out of the hardware (engine). RaceChip utilises power reserves smart and efficiently and can’t be outperformed by remapping in most dimensions.

Remapping

Also limited by the power reserves, if durability is relevant. Power upgrades by 40% are castles in the air without exchanging components or harming your car in the long run.

Fine-Tuning also after Installation

RaceChip

A RaceChip is programmed specifically for your engine. On top, you can fine-tune the settings after installation, if required (e.g. your specific engine variants slightly).

Remapping

Remaps may (but not have to) take standard factory model variations into account. Though, after installation they are set in stone and can’t be adjusted to your individual needs later on.

Two Engine Protection Systems

RaceChip

Manufacturers protection mechanisms remain functional, plus additional RaceChip Engine Protection System. This ensures maximum safety and longevity of your car.

Remapping

Manufacturers protection mechanisms can get overwritten. This e.g. leads to your engine not detecting overheating or too much pressure anymore. I.e. wear and tear are increased above an acceptable level.

Safe Engine Warranty

RaceChip

RaceChip products comprise an engine warranty of up to 2 years, which covers all relevant engine components. Moreover, the manufacturer’s engine hardware remains unaltered.

Remapping

Remapping is detected during a normal service, which definitely leads to a loss of the manufacturers’ engine warranty. Most remappers do not offer a warranty on your engine.

Easy Reset to Factory Setting

RaceChip

Easy removal within a few minutes (e.g. before a service) in order to reset the car to the factory setting. Our tuning can’t be overwritten during a service. It can be reprogrammed and transferred to another car.

Remapping

Removal is difficult and will remain detectable (manufacturers’ ECU counts each flash). Moreover, a remap may be overwritten during the service of your car.

Your BMW still has power in reserve.

Tap into its full potential with RaceChip.

Why do different BMW engines sometimes have such different outputs – despite having the same cubic capacity? Because in today's BMWs, the main difference between the engines is the software – not the hardware. Our engine tuning products use the same principle.

With RaceChip engine tuning parts, your BMW will often have more engine power than the next up the BMW range. At a fraction of the cost.

Even more joy with your BMW

A joy to drive with RaceChip

The Bavarian brand with the unmistakable blue and white logo is internationally renowned for its dynamics, agility, sportiness, and the pure joy one feels when driving it. With RaceChip and BMW, two automobile companies come together who deep within their brands stand for a one-of-a-kind driving experience – which makes for an ideal combination. You can experience the joy of driving a BMW on a whole new level with chip tuning modules from RaceChip.


BMW earned its unique reputation primarily through sports engines that are reliable even at their limits. BMW combines accomplished turbocharger technology with the latest injection technologies for high performance and efficiency. Nevertheless, even BMW engines offer incredible power reserves and are far from their performance optimum in standard factory condition. That's exactly where RaceChip comes in. With our engine tuning you can tap into your BMW's power reserves and enjoy your engine's potential on a whole new level.


RaceChip offers performance improvement with our chip tuning for almost all BMW models. Whether saloon, coupé or convertible, Touring, Gran Coupeé or Gran Tourismo, X, Z or M, we surely have something available for you.


Electronic performance improvement

Experience the joy of driving on the next level with RaceChip – that's how a BMW should drive!


RaceChip chip tuning for your BMW offers you the latest method of electronic performance improvement. A highly sophisticated and individually programmed auxiliary device is installed between the engine control unit and the sensors – a type of mini-computer with optimisation software developed especially for your BMW engine. This software optimises the electronic signals that control the engine, enabling up to 30% more power (HP) and up to 30% more torque (Nm).


With our technological approach to engine tuning, we follow the same principle of electronic performance improvement that BMW itself uses to differentiate models with an identical engine block. For example, BMW today offers the 3 series BMW (F30) in a wide range of performance levels from 116 HP to 218 HP based on a 2-litre diesel engine with identical bore and idle stroke. These are primarily generated by adjustments to the electronics.


BMW designs its engines in such a way that they allow for a wide performance range, and even the highest motorisation models still possess considerable thermal and mechanical power reserves. RaceChip performance improvement always works within these reserves, and the engine protection system in your BMW remains active at all times.


Experience the famed joy of driving in your BMW in a completely new way. More power, more dynamics, more fun.

No matter which BMW you drive, whether turbo-diesel, turbo-petrol engine or ActiveHybrid, with RaceChip chip tuning you'll enjoy a more intense drive every time. Here are just a few of many examples:


With regard to the 20 d engines in the current series (no matter whether the BMW 5 series, 3 series or 1 series), you can always surpass BMW's next-highest model with diesel tuning from RaceChip. In this way the optimised performance of 235 HP in your 320d with the Pro 2 from RaceChip easily beats the 325d with standard 218 HP – offering much more attractive value for money.


With turbo diesel tuning from RaceChip Ultimate, the 25d (like in the 525 d or 325 d) really shows what it's got – with impressive acceleration and more power in every driving situation. The 218 HP version with 450 Nm torque gets boosted to 279 HP and a full 576 Nm torque with RaceChip Ultimate.


The BMW 535i, which features a standard twin turbo 6-cylinder with 306 HP and 400 Nm, experiences performance improvement with RaceChip Ultimate for a spectacular 394 HP and 512 Nm – performance data that suits this premium vehicle well.


Even the “smaller” BMW 535d turbo diesel has get-up-and-go with a standard 299 HP and 600 Nm. After 10-15 minutes of DIY installation, the RaceChip Pro 2 provides 390 HP and 700 Nm for more fun on the streets.


We also have something in store for price-conscious chip tuners. The BMW 118d with 143 HP will easily reach 181 HP and 386 Nm with our starter chip, the RaceChip One, offering you real driving pleasure.


With RaceChip Ultimate, a BMW X5 with xDrive 40d and standard 313 HP shreds its sluggish image and becomes an irresistible road warrior with 411 HP. This heavy SUV becomes an agile all-rounder for any driving situation. Plus, if you want to pull a trailer or go off-roading, then you'll really appreciate the supreme 737 Nm RaceChip unlocks.


RaceChip can even tap into power reserves of top models like the BMW M6—and in a big way. RaceChip Ultimate catapults these modern 4.4 litre V8 turbocharged petrol engines from 560 HP and 680 Nm to more than 635 HP and 815 Nm. As far as driving goes, the Gran Tourismo becomes a racy sports car. You'll only find a few vehicles that can compare with it. When it comes to power as well as quality, RaceChip motor tuning is at least on par with prominent BMW tuners like AC Schnitzer. However, you'll always get the RaceChip package at unbeatable value for money.


Summer 2014: it's not even on the market and it's already optimised at RaceChip – the new BMW M4 coupé with BiTurbo and standard 431 HP V6 (the same power train is also used in the M3 saloon). With RaceChip Ultimate, the M3 and M4 become powerhouses with an overtake guarantee at 484 HP. Read this article about the development of our power increase for the new BMW M4.

Help differentiating CR/PD

Several Audi, Seat, Skoda and VW model series with 2.0 TDI engines use both CR and PD ("Pumpe-Düse" / Unit injector) technology.

RaceChip chip tuning is specially customised to the applicable fuel injection technology with respect to both hardware and software. If your vehicle is specified in the list of applicable models below (all other 2.0 TDI models feature just one type of technology), it is important to determine, before choosing a tuning product, which type of injection technology is installed in your vehicle. For such models, you will therefore find the “CR” or “PD” designation after your engine code.

Performance The following Volkswagen Group model series are applicable: Engine code CR Engine code PD
100kW (136hp) Audi: A3 (8P), A6 (C6)
VW: Golf Plus, Jetta V, Passat B6
CAGB, CBAA, CFFA AZV, BMA, BNA, BRF
103kW (140hp) Audi: A3 (8P)
Seat: Altea (5P)
Skoda: Octavia (1Z), Superb (3T)
VW: Caddy (2K, 2C), Eos (1F), Golf V,
Golf VI, Jetta V, Passat B6, Touran (1T)
CBAB, CBDB, CFFB,
CFHC, CJAA, CLCB,
CLJA
BKD, BKP, BMM, BMP

If your vehicle is in this list and you are not sure if it is a CR or PD version, then simply follow one of the following steps to identify CR or PD technology.

Using the engine code:

For PD models, the engine code consists of 3 characters, while for CR there are 4 characters. You can find your vehicle’s engine code in the specification sheet in your service booklet or on the data sticker in your engine bay.
