Mercedes Benz C 300 D Modern Power Diesel Technology

The Mercedes Benz C 300 D is the first of many new diesel engines utilizing the OM 654 SCR motor that comes standard with two turbochargers and easily produces over 200 PS. Lightweight, economical and powerful, this engine is perfectly suited to the C class Mercedes. With 500 Nm of torque available at just 1800 RPM, this motor propels the C class rather rapidly for a diesel and is sure to impress. In manufacturer standard form: Engine capacity: 1950 cc Engine code: OM 654 D20 ScR Fuel type: Diesel Hybrid drive?: available on other models with this engine Number of Gears: 9 Speed G-tronic Standard power: 245 PS Standard torque: 500 Nm Standard 0 to 100 km/h time: 5.9 seconds Top speed: 250 km/h Through individual software optimization and programming directly to the engines control unit, Fastlane Tuning Schweiz can offer the following improvements: Optimized power: 280 PS (+35 PS) Optimized torque: 570 Nm (+70 Nm) Optimized 0 to 100 km/h time: 5.4 seconds Top speed: 275 km/h (+25 km/h) 0.5 seconds faster does not do justice to the improvement this tune makes, the real benefit is in the 70 Nm of additional torque that is available from 1800 RPM. This results in real world improvements in responsiveness, agility and acceleration that continues in all gears. The outcome: a torquey, fast C class that loses none of its elegance, refinement or style but gains a spirited performance normally reserved for the larger 3.0 litre V6 motor only available in the higher specification models (C400 for example). As always, our software is individually programmed to match your vehicle and our upgrades are designed to last. At stage 1 no hardware changes are made and this ensures your vehicle remains emissions and noise regulations compliant.

BMW 428i Coupe - Refinement and Poise

BMW's F Series 428i Coupe is an excellent mix between real world economy, great looks and performance. A smooth and elegant design matched to BMW's N20 or B48 2.0 litre four cylinder turbocharged petrol motor means strong performance, refinement and reliability. At Fastlane Tuning Schweiz we have a lot of experience with both of these motors and can offer a nice power upgrade that truly transforms the car. In standard form the motor is under powered for the size of the vehicle, but still adequate. After our upgrades the vehicle rides and responds significantly better and shows greater agility in all conditions. When fitted with the ZF8 Automatic gearbox and xDrive, the vehicle is able to make the best use of the power increases and transmit that efficiently to the road. The result - better acceleration, similar or slightly lower fuel consumption and a higher top speed. Engine capacity: 1997 cc Engine code: N20B20 or B48B020 (later models) Fuel type: Petrol Hybrid drive?: not yet Number of Gears: 8 Speed ZF8HP transmission Standard power: 245 PS Standard torque: 350 Nm Standard 0 to 100 km/h time: 5.9 seconds Top speed: 240 km/h Through individual software optimization and programming directly to the engines control unit, Fastlane Tuning Schweiz can offer the following improvements: Optimized power: 275 PS (+30 PS) - The B48 Motor can yield slightly more - circa 285PS Optimized torque: 400 Nm (+50 Nm) - The B48 Motor yields 20 Nm at 420 Nm Optimized 0 to 100 km/h time: 5.6 seconds Top speed: 260 km/h (+20 km/h) As always, our software is individually programmed to match your vehicle and our upgrades are designed to last.

Professional - Accurate - Real World Performance Measurement

Finally a realistically priced and technically accurate device is available on the market that enables Fastlane Tuning Schweiz to offer its customers an accurate assessment of their vehicles performance. Whether your vehicle was already tuned by us, or your simply interested in finding out what the real world power and torque of your vehicle is, we offer this in a reliable and professional manner at a compelling price. For our customers who have already undertaken an upgrade with us, we offer a performance measurement and report for just 60 CHF. For new customers who simply want to know what their vehicle is currently producing we can offer it for just 100 CHF. We also offer this service as part of the Stage 1 upgrade for just 50 CHF. This is to cover the time it takes to undertake the testing and gives you an accurate baseline and post upgrade performance assessment. We only wish we could have offered it sooner. Some reasons why you should consider having a road based power measurement undertaken: 1. It reflects the real conditions under which your vehicle will operate. 2. No issues with under or over reading on static dynanometers. 3. No possibility of 'interpretation of the results' through adjustment of the correction factors. 4. No disappointing results due to a lack of air starvation that is common amongst inline 5 cylinder engines. 5. No messing around with activating and deactivating dyno mode. 6. No risk of overheating or undue stress on the engine or drive train. For a long time, road based dynometer systems have been a little inaccurate and relied heavily on the input data provided. The factors that go into a correct assessment are as follows: 1. Vehicle weight 2. Amount of fuel in the vehicle tank 3. Driver weight 4. Passenger weight (if any) 5. Temperature 6. Altitude 7. Barometric pressure 8. Road surface 9. Tyre condition and size 10. Tyre type (winter tyres can impact the result if not properly accounted for) 11. Technical proficiency of the tester. With the new DynoRoad system from Magic Motorsport, the number of avenues for 'interpretation' (ie manipulation) of the results are limited and thus the assessment is fair and reliable. In other words it leaves the ego and the desires of the operator / customer behind and provides an impartial and professional assessment of the real world power of your vehicle.

SEAT Cupra R - Simply Awesome!

The Mk3 SEAT Leon Cupra R is a rare beast indeed and if you find one, simply buy it. Buy it and then bring it to us! The SEAT Cupra R is basically a Golf 7R in but without the price tag. It is also lighter therefore goes faster than a Golf 7R standard form. Fastlane Tuning Schweiz recently had the privilege to upgrade one of the rarest Cupra R models - the ST in limited numbers and the result after chiptuning was fantastic! Just like the Golf R there is a lot of potential hidden in these motors just waiting to be released. In standard form these vehicles have the following characteristics:: Engine capacity: 1984 cc Engine code: CJXC Inline 4 cylinder turbocharged Fuel type: Petrol Hybrid drive?: not yet Number of Gears: 7-speed DSG - front wheel drive Standard power: 310 PS Standard torque: 380 Nm Standard 0 to 100 km/h time: 4.9 seconds Top speed: 250 km/h Through individual software optimization and programming directly to the engines control unit, Fastlane Tuning Schweiz can offer the following improvements: Optimized power: 360 PS (+50 PS) Optimized torque: 470 Nm (+110 Nm) Optimized 0 to 100 km/h time: 4.2 seconds Top speed: 280 km/h (+30 km/h) The result after our professional software optimization is great. The additional 110 Nm of torque delivered to such a small bodied car results in the ability to shred tyres at will. The traction control really struggles to keep order. As always, our software is individually programmed to match your vehicle and our upgrades are designed to last.

BMW M140i - a true wolf in sheeps clothing

Until recently, BMW have been shoving moderate capacity inline 6 cylinder engines into small and compact segment cars with great success. The ultimate recipe for automotive fun is a large engine coupled to a small / lightweight body and the higher models of BMW's F20 / F21 series 1 series cars were no exception. The last of these underestimated and understated creatures was the BMW M140i. Sold up until December 2019 it was the last of the 1 Series 6 cylinder BMW's. In Australia and the United Kingdom these models sold only in rear wheel drive, however in Europe xDrive was available which enabled a completely standard M140i XDrive to go from 0 to 100 in just 4.4 seconds. When first released that was just 0.1 sec slower than the BMW M2. 0.1 seconds is noting in the real world and when considering all wheel drive it essentially translates to a 1 Series being able to soundly out accelerate an M2. Engine capacity: 2998 cc Engine code: B58B30M0 3.0 L Inline 6 with twinscroll turbocharger Fuel type: Petrol Hybrid drive?: not yet Number of Gears: 8 Speed ZF8 steptronic transmission / 6 speed manual Standard power: 340 PS Standard torque: 500 Nm Standard 0 to 100 km/h time: 4.4 seconds Top speed: 260 km/h (electronically limited) Through individual software optimization and programming directly to the engines control unit, Fastlane Tuning Schweiz can offer the following improvements: Optimized power: 410 PS (+70 PS) Optimized torque: 580 Nm (80 Nm) Optimized 0 to 100 km/h time: 4.0 seconds Top speed: 300 km/h (+40 km/h) The improvement is significant, resulting in a more responsive and torquey engine output that transforms this car into a truly enjoyable vehicle to drive - without sacrificing fuel economy, quietness or reliability. Basically it becomes an M2 destroying beast and can easily take on faster vehicles and give them a real surprise.
