More Power Needed!!!

Hey ya'll just a quick one.
What would do they do to tune up my e36 (320i 1994 130thousand miles) it doesnt seam 2 spin like it used to or get the speed up as quick so im guessing its lost some power its not exactly slow but it could just do with that lil more throttle responce, will a tuneup solve this and will it cost much?So can anyone give me an idea and what to ask for, and at a reall big push if anyone knows where i can take it in stoke on trent.
Thanx Chris

A tuneup may or may restore throttle response to it's original value - but it will definitely help.
Is it due for an inspection? If you do those whenever the computer tells you, your car should never really need a "tuneup" per se; because that's essentially what they're doing on those inspections. Usually around $500, you can expect a top off of all fluids, if you're nice they may even flush everything for you, change wipers, spark plugs, oil, and all filters.
The oil, plugs, and filters should help with throttle response (as well as if they also clean out the fuel injector and do some of those flushes).
Also make sure there's nothing wrong with your drivetrain...


Crap, I think I may be a yuppie...

well it was servised about 12 month ago id say, but inbetwwen that we've changed the oil filter and oil, spark plugs ive left alone because i heard they arent the same as a cars usual plugs and the cost alot more to ? id say the injectors probably need a flush out and maybe the plugs cleaned but other than that id say it just needs tuning cuz its drinkin more fuel, but when my brother took his old turbos to the likes of castle preformance it used to get the boost done n that, 30quid odd it cost cant i have something that just re maps the ecu back to normal i just dunno really any tips on things i could do myself? i just was hoping for a quick fix

The plugs aren't more expensive so much as more finicky. Something about timing. As for the rich running, you might want to check your air filter even.
As far as remapping... yours is an OBDI, so I'm not sure how that works (I've got OBDII, so you can just reset it. Literally.). But supposedly it's easier than OBDII to play around with... so...

Yeah, there is never a thing as an easy fix, is there....
