    Hi has anyone remapped a 520d e60 2008 (177) before?

    I am thinking about getting this done but wanted to know if it increases or decreases the mpg.

    Cheers

    You'll get an increase so there are no nasty surprises for you.

    There is a chance you may need the ECU removed as Tuning Protection does start to appear in your car at about this age which can make it quite a specialised task, but no t impossible.

    You'd be looking at about 30-50bhp increase, around 70Nm of torque, and 2-3mpg increase dependant on driving style.

    As above..

    If driven well you will see a good gain in mpg. But being an E60 the ecu wont have to be taken out to be re-mapped , they can be done via the port..

    Hi, I see your question goes back to May 2012 but I have a 58 plate 520d m sport and had it remapped last year at In Car Tech with rolling road data in Chipping Sodbury. The car now makes 228 bhp and 351 lb torque. I have had no problems at all and a small increase in mpg when driven sensibly. The torque is where it makes the difference and im glad I had it done after wondering about it for months. I did my research and heard read some bad reports but luckily all OK with this remap after almost 12 months.
