    Hi guys, I'm pretty new on here - I've just put a deposit on an E60 525D M Sport ('07 LCI - manual).

    I not even picked the car up yet but I'm looking at getting the car remapped. Who's best suited to do this? Ideally I would like someone in the North West, with lots of experience on these cars, who's able to do a proper live map and give me a before and after dyno print out. Some sort of warranty would be preferable too. I take it a proper live map will better than these flash devices like Superchips Bluefin and Evolve Automotives switch box?

    Besides a remap - what other mods do these cars respond well to? I was thinking of keeping it simple and going for stage 1 mods (what would these be?)

    I don't want to go crazy with the tuning as I throw enough money at my other motor!

    Thanks for the help

    Pd tuning are one of our dealers for bmw Remaps up north and have a Dyno dynamics rolling road
    Newcastle

    This is a 325d which has the same engine as your
    You can see how I've unlock the torque for this car

    Here you can see by the blue line how we have got extra torque by unlocking its power on a 325d with 3.0d bottom end
    Tested by another tuning company

    Thanks for the reply but I'm ideally looking for a tuning garage in the North West.

    I live near Chester.

    Did the car in the top graph start out as a 197bhp 525D?
    What mods has the car in the bottom graph had? That's a big difference!

    Top dyno graph is a 170bhp 2.5d

    Bottom dyno graph Is the 197bhp 2.5d which has the 3.0d engine which make 260bhp with our remap

    The extra torque is is gain by some of my extra tweaks to the software
