    Ok guys...
    Bought a 530d, and im happy with performance for a diesel its pretty quick
    (e39 530d 193bhp), however i would like to push it abit further. I currently have just over 115000 miles, automatic tip gearbox and 4 fresh tyres lol.

    Im looking to remap it however i'd like abit of advice on that due to too many people coming up with 'the gearbox cant handle it' 'this will happen' 'that will happen'

    I also dont mind replacing air filters, although on another post someone had said it wont make an increase due to it being a diesel, therefore i should go for a uprated panel filter?

    tbh guys, my car atm does 0-60 in about 8.7 seconds on a timer, if i could including both tuning mod's mentioned above i'd like to bring that to at least 7.0 seconds if not less.

    Any help appreciated people! p.s, i love some of your cars guys, definatley bmw for life

    Hi there, don't think that a remap alone will drop your 0-60 time by 1.7sec but it will of course help it. To be honest,oem bmw air filters are pretty good but if you want to get an uprated filter then by all means do it, it won't make things worse.
    From the remap you will gain between 40-45bhp and 85-95Nm torque, you may also see some mpg benefits! As for the gearbox issue, it's really hit and miss. I've remapped some auto cars with over 130K on the clock and as far as I'm aware theres never been any problems, but then I've had some cars with much lower mileage that have had gearbox problems. Yes a remap is going to put a little more stress on components but are you going to be driving with a heavy right foot ALL the time to utilise the extra torque? If so then the only way of doing things properly is to have a new gearbox before a remap (which is a little excessive). Drive normally and use the extra power when you need to and you really are not going to do any more than if the car was standard.
