E90 320d M-Sport, remapped, PX - w.h.y.?

Here's my E90 up for sale:

Factory M-Sport 320d, sparkling graphite, Alcantara/Silver interior, Manual
M-Sport spec includes alcantara sports seats, exterior lighting pack, sport suspension, fatter steering wheel, stubby gearknob, bodykit etc.
Remapped to ~200 bhp (Autoremap)
The "big 3" have been done (clutch, DMF, turbo)
Engine is deflapped, and CDV is removed (this improves the clutch response)
Non RFTs fitted, comes with spare wheel, jack, and roof bars
145,000 miles
fresh NCT, also has current MOT

Parkers review says it all :

This car has the M47 engine (163 bhp), in standard form, 0-60 in 8 seconds, 140 mph top speed, 153g CO2/km.
Estimated figures with the remap are 200 bhp, 0-60 in around 7s, it feels very similar in power to the 530d I had previously.
The M47 engine does NOT have the camshaft problems that are now being seen with the later N47 engine (177 bhp, stop start).

The car is driving very well, with no knocks, clunks, or rattles. Everything works, and all maintenance has been carried out either as required or on a preventative basis. I have a file with receipts or stamps for all the below work, plus other bits and pieces I bought for the car.

thanks BigH, thats the service details alright.

Nasah the deflapping made very little difference. Very very slightly rougher idle I think, but absolutely worth it for peace of mind - even though there was a redesign for the 163 bhp engines which reduce the likelihood of the problem occurring.

The CDV removal makes the clutch much more responsive, kind of like a normal clutch actually. Its slightly less comfortable (more jerky) until you get used to it, especially for passengers. I found with the CDV in place, I would quite often cut the car out when trying to pull out quickly from a junction into a gap in traffic - this doesn't happen any more. I also left it for a good few months after purchase before removing the CDV, as it might have been me not being used to the car.

I'd recommend doing both deflapping and CDV removal. The CDV is a handy job to get put back in again.

(there is no VRT due on this car if it is put back on Irish plates)
