    Hi all

    My first post, so bear with me please.

    I bought a 2006 530d M Sport Auto a couple of weeks ago. It's a fantastic car but I've been pretty shocked by the fuel consumption, particularly when driven with a featherlight touch! I understand that it's a heavy, powerfull car but based on published MPG figures I expected better than 37/38 MPG on a 100 mile 70MPH cruise! I had a brief search online and see that most people who've commented have similar tales to tell.

    I stumbled across the following outfit:
    http://www.evolutionchips.co.uk/chipsearch.asp

    I spoke to a local dealer/fitter and he sounded convincing about the upgrade and the improved fuel consumption they claim (up to 20% improvement) but I wondered if anyone on the forum had any experience of them? If not, can anyone vouch for someone I could use up here in Edinburgh?

    Thanks guys.

    Sounds and looks good but I dont think you will get 20% Of an MPG gain...

    BM owners club had an article last year about diesel re-maps and they used Evolution chips. 20 to 30% BHP and torque gain, maybe 10% gain on your fuel consumption - they thoroughly recommended! Big discount if you are in the Owner Club.
    I only get 31 mpg out of mine but I don't go on the motorway. Been thinking of having mine done for ages....
