This is an endless topic. If you're looking for a great chip tuner for your BMW 1 Series, whether powered by a petrol (turbo) or turbodiesel engine, we want to tell you in the meantime that you've come to the right place and that you can find the perfect kit to increase the power and torque of your 1 Series in the chip tuning section of our online catalog > https://seletron.com/it/shop/bmw/


Coming back to chip tuning additional modules for BMW 1 Series, the topic is never-ending. This is primarily because BMW is one of the brands we have worked with for well over 20 years! Moreover, as we have become familiar with from BMW, there are so many constantly evolving engines with the related technology always keeping pace with or pulling ahead of the most refined solutions. This means that there are so many 1 Series models on the market and, consequently, so many enhancement kits (we're talking about chip tuning units) available for these little Bavarian cars.


BMW 1 Series Diesel Chip Tuning Units

These are the first ones we dealt with. The 1 Series were practically born with common-rails and have been tuned by us thousands of times, both in Italy (where we manufacture) and abroad. The most tuned engines with our CHIPBOX ECUs in the early years were the 16-valve 2-liter common-rails, especially those with 163hp. In the years following the early versions, other power ratings of the 2-liter turbodiesels were introduced right up to the very frequently tuned bi-turbodiesel version. More recently, the more performance-oriented 2-liters with 177hp, 184hp, and 190hp were added. These have been the subject of continual requests for performance increases. The various 3-cylinder or smaller displacement turbodiesels were also added. Here, too, the demand for additional chip tuners was intense and still is today, partly because those who tried a 1 Series with one of the higher performance diesels but bought a less powerful version often regretted it and sought solutions to safely increase power and torque.


BMW 1 Series Turbo-Petrol Chip Tuning

In recent years, more and more automakers have gone in the direction of downsizing, meaning producing engines that are smaller and more efficient but equally as powerful as or more powerful than their predecessors, which had larger displacement and-often-more cylinders. To progress in this direction, the major automakers have resorted to turbocharging (often twin-scroll), direct petrol injection, and increasingly complex and precise electronic management. In recent years, BMW has produced many turbocharged petrol engines with 3, 4, and 6 cylinders. Also, on injection systems, BMW has come a long way on Otto cycle engines, bringing to market many turbocharged engines with direct petrol injection. This solution allows for better efficiency and means the engine can create stratified charges and work at low loads even without maintaining the classic stoichiometric ratio. It goes without saying that the 1 Series has also benefited from these technologies, and thus there are many versions of the BMW 1 Series with turbocharged petrol engines powered by direct injection. Lo and behold, as this category of engines has become more popular, many requests for electronic tuning with the installation of chip tuners have reached us. Would you like to see a few examples of what can be achieved with our CHIPBOX chip tuning module on the 1 Series?
