    Hi

    I have looked at a few threads on here and other BMW forums but still looking for some advice.
    I have been looking for a 530D for a while now and due to my budget I have basically gave up and considered a 520D as there is a 2006 one local to me.

    I know the car will be too under powered for me so I will be getting it remapped straight away. Just wondering what other mods there is?

    I presume the de-cat and DPF.
    DPF seems fairly expensive? Anyone have an idea of cost for this also gains after a map?

    I am looking to get a bit more power but with out spending huge money e.g intercooler upgrade etc.

    Thanks

    Be warned of DPF offs, it is looking like there will be new checks for these in the MOT next year.

    I have been telling people for a while now that if they are removing them, it's better to gut the original case and keep the weld on the top where it can't be seen so it will pass a visual inspection, but there may be other checks or methods coming in.

    or just fit a custom undertray so that it can't be seen, MOT testers aren't allowed to remove stuff for inspections

    You don't need to remove the Dpf to get more power and torque

    These 520d 163bhp go really well after a remap and will feel better than a 525d power wise to drive

    You will see 210-215bhp with an extra 80-100ft of torque extra

    We have a BW chiptune Xmass remap offer which includes dyno testing before and after
