Re: Has anybody "chipped" thier 159 JTDM?

I had my 159 JTDM remapped about a year ago. Had a 320d before and the standard 159 performance was nowhere close. Took it to Red Dot in Watford and they did an excellent job. The rolling road test they do showed 158 bhp before and 196bhp after, loads more torque too. Nearly 20k miles on all is still fine and the MPG hasn't dropped. Get it done, for about 1% of the new car value you get the performance to match the looks!
Out of curiosity, what is you MPG?'
I seem to do pretty well here compared to what I've read! I do about 500 miles per week, probably 80% motorway. Trip computer regularly tells me the mpg is mid 40s. I don't thrash it, but at the same time I'm no Capt. Sensible! A 190+BHP Alfa that does 45 mpg can't be bad.
