    Hi guys I have a 530d with 161,000 miles and was thinking of getting it remapped and wanted too get options on what other members think and would advice?

    It's had a recon turbo about a year ago

    Don't know if the gearbox has ever been recon or replaced but performs great

    Thanks in advance

    no probs bud

    As long as the service history is there I think you'd be ok with a gentle map, say +30bhp and +80nm the only question mark will be the auto box
    and we've all heard the horror stories about them failing

    I'm sure one, or more, of the tuners will offer you their professional opinion soon.

    That's the only thing I'm a little concerned about is the auto box

    Costs will vary from place to place.
    From me it would be £245, and power is adjustable to different levels.

    The box would cope with the extra power but 10% will be lost with an autobox on any power increase anyway.

    Def do it though as they respond very well to remaps

    Do you know the current output? I'm guessing it is a 184bhp engine.
    Approx 35bhp is the norm for an engine of that size to stay within limits, and 80-90Nm of torque, but it can be varied towards more or less power if required.
