    Hi Guys

    Am new to this site. I've just acquired a 2008 535d and was looking to have it remapped. There seems to be a lot of tuning companies out there but I'm sure they're not all the same, even though they all quote marketing leading technology etc. Does anyone have any experience or advice please? I am also interested in the sort of gains I should expect.

    Thanks in advance

    As you are in London, you would be best to go and see BWchiptune in Hounslow. He can also dyno the car for you so you can see the difference between stock and modified. You can reach BWchiptune on 07831 103030

    That's great guys. Really appreciate the replies and I'll certainly check out some of the above.

    By the way, does anyone have an opinion on DMS tuning as I've read a couple of articles on a 535d they'd remapped? And am I better off having the DPF removed?

    Many thanks

    Having the DPF gutted and deleted from the software while getting it remapped is the best thing to do. You will no longer have to worry about the DPF blocking up. I'll PM you some other information.

    I think new laws come in that any car after 2008 that has the DPF taken out will fail the MOT..

    If its not playing up . let it be !

    Point taken, if I left on the DPF and it eventually clogged up, am I looking at a massive repair bill or can I then remove the DPF to sort out the problem?

    Thanks
