The XHP tuned file will provide dramatic improvements in behaviour and performance, further enhancing and complimenting any stage 1, 2 or 3 remap the vehicle has.

WHAT IMPROVEMENTS WILL I GET FROM THE GEARBOX REMAP?

These are just some of the features that improve your BMW Gearbox. There are 3 different Stages of an XHP Flashtool Remap depending on you and your vehicle. Stage 1 is for vehicles and drivers who are set up for the more fuel economic way of driving but still enjoy some spirited driving when the need and desire takes, we would say that this would be suitable for 95% of the drivers on the road. Stage 2 and 3 are for the performance lovers out there who are focused on gaining the most they can from both the Engine and Transmission, mainly those who regularly attend track days.
