    You should not have any problems with the Dpf blocking up if every thing is running correctly and you drive the car down the motorway every few months

    We offer remapping and dyno testing on a dyno dynamics rolling road which is in house

    I make our Remaps in house by my self and i supply other well know tuners
    A good few have dyno dynamics rolling roads for testing

    I my self am a BMW technician and have all the dealer diagnostics and more

    We can also remove the Dpf from the car and completely from the Ecu so you will not have any problems with lights on the dash or on the screen

    If you do a search for PDT 335d on YouTube you will find a 335d owned by PDT which i made the tuned file for them and being tested on a dyno dynamics rolling road
    This car has the same engine fitted to your 535d

    A car without a DPF will still pass the MOT as long as it passes the smoke test, before I removed my DPF I spoke to VOSA and they said it would still pass if the smoke test is met, limit for turbo diesel is 3 and 1.5 for cars after 1st July 2008

    Appreciate the advice guys

    I think I'll leave the DPF for now and just start with a remap. I'm told I should expect 345bhp and 517lb of torque which I think will be ample to start with. If and when I need more power I'll look at gutting the DPF and upgrading the exhaust.

    Other than that I cant think of any other power upgrades available on the car. I'm keen to hear of any experiences with a remapped 535d and also if there are any other options to increase power that I've not thought of.

    Thanks as always

    If you do remove your DPF in the future Ecotune in Scotland do a proper DPF delete downpipe that replaces it, I wouldn't waste the time gutting a DPF, when you gutt them you have a very large empty chamber in the downpipe, just get the propper bit of kit that you bolt straight on and is 3" all the way through

    I did originally think it was best to remove it but I'm worried about future mot requirements. It's been suggested that if i have the DPF gutted then it still looks like it's there if inspected?

    I do understand the point of an empty chamber though.

    Thanks for the tip on Ecotune.

    I would have thought you should get more torque than that mate my 330d has 534nm and my friends late model 330d has just shy of 700nm

    That's a handy way that any garage can do without needing any extra parts.
    The DPF is removed and cut at the top, the filter removed, and re-welded, but keeping all the cuts on the top side so they can't be seen.

    It's not as fancy as a stainless pipe, but it can mean that any garage can bin the DPF if needed.

    We have be doing this for a good few years and we do not need to cut open the box as we remove the Dpf and cat from the turbo side of the Dpf box
    This does take some time and care to do

    Here's a YouTube video of a x5 3.0sd we made the remap tuned file for sedox performance uk tested on a dyno dynamics rolling road
    Which has the same engine as a 335d and 535d
    Http:/www.youtube.com/watch?v=cCZBEuHNk3c
    276bhp to 346bhp 518ft/lbs of torque
