    Hi all,

    I've got a 54 plate 525d 177bhp. I'm contemplating getting a remap, just to tease a touch more oomph out, as well as potentially some mpg gains. Anyone had any good or bad experiences, or have any idea what gains I may be able to realistically achieve?

    Cheers,

    Phil

    As long as you stick with forum vendors like bwchiptune you won't have a bad experience. Realistic gains I have heard can be around 30bhp and upwards. PM him and see what's best for your car.

    There nice to tune. 30/35hp and 40lbt.. Just make sure you go for a map that is for your car.. Being a 54 plate you want it tuned like a 10 year old car not like a new one..

    We offer a try before you buy and 14 days money back too.. Cost is £280.00 all in..

    Thanks
    Thanks Mike

    Hi there. As your in Colchester you probably don't want to travel to far. Bwchiptune is in Hayes Middlesex and I'm their dealer for Kent/Essex. Have a chat with bwchiptune and they can sort things out.

    These e60 525d 177bhp are great to tune and make a huge difference to how they drive after

    Here is a dyno graph of a 2006 e60 525d before and after the remap

    This car made 178bhp standard and remapped made 233bhp with an extra 80ft tested on a Dyno dynamics rolling road
    Which is a huge difference to how the car drives after our remap
    ImageUploadedByAG Free1392258668.919479.jpg
    Green lines are standard car 178bhp
    Red is the tuned car 233bhp

    I've retune many of these 525d 177bhp as most other tuners only get around 30-35bhp and 40ish ft extra which does not feel a lot when driving these heavy cars

    Darren at APTuning is one of my dealers and if you don't need or want your car dyno tested then he is the nearest dealer for you to use and me to tune your car through
    Darren number is 07738 236577
    My number is 02085611818 if you need more info
