While the basic BMW 116d might not set anyone’s pulse racing with a mere 115bhp, that hasn’t stopped Hartge from working their magic on it.
They have worked on a new performance upgrade for the baby Bimmer that includes a new ECU and sports exhaust. Power is up to 143bhp, while torque is increased from 192lb/ft to 232lb/ft. There’s also a set of new springs that lower the 116’s ride height by 25mm and counter the sponginess of the standard setup.
Of course, if you really want to go to town you can choose all manner of accessories from the Hartge catalogue.
