    Hi guys.
    I have a 2001 e39 530i auto. I want to increase the fuel economy of the car but keep (if not increase) is power. Is this possible? I've heard remapping the car may help achieve this, is that correct? What Do You recommend?

    Thank you

    the money you will save on fuel will not compensate for the cost of the remap for a long time unles you do big miles. They can be made more efficient but not by much.

    Most of my miles are urban stop and start, that's Were the auto gear box dents my pocket. Especially moving off. Perhaps I just need to adjust my driving style even more. Thanks for a different Perspective
