    Hello Forum. Very excited to say I have now done close to 150k in DMS remapped 2006 535d. Now I'm not scared of the loud pedal, but not a murmur from engine or transmission, and up to 120k, when I woke up to decent independant servicing, not a squeak from BMW dealers when serviced. So I've gone mad and bought another 535d, 2008 to replace. Do I need to use DMS to get the remapping done? I can't, by the way, imagine a better car, and what a good forum!

    I'm pleased to hear your car has been reliable with the DMS remap. I'm considering this option myself. You reckon you've had value for money by the sounds of it?

    Well, it's just all grins. Fuel comsumption marginally better too, and if you want to potter you can get really good fuel figures on a run, by good I mean well over 40 to the gallon, which for something that can rip trees up is good. I did worry about the drivetrain and if BMW would spot it at servicing, but it's all been good. I'm just keen to know if I need to go to DMS again or there are other equally good options.

    Interestingly I've been in touch with Emaps and their customer service so far is spot-on. Farakh emailed me back promptly with answers to my queries. The biggest difference in the claim for what the two companies can theoretically achieve with their maps.

    For my E90 325d...

    DMS claim 285bhp and 530Nm of twist.

    Emaps are claiming 230bhp and 475 Nm.

    There is a big difference in price but I'm tempted by the powerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

    Hi Findlay,

    Something doesen't sound right with the figures quoted??
    That's even more than they produce for a E90 330d engine!! which wouldn't be right.

    Are you sure thsy have given you the correct figures? as the E90 325d on their website is blank for the upgrade columns?? Unless i Can't see the woods for the trees lol or they have unlocked some magical way of being able to add +90 odd bhp and a massive +130nm's of torque on the 325d's??

    Cheers

    From an anonymous source

    We do upgrade a lot of 325d, the 3.0d engine being de-tuned in the 325d hence we get a massive upgrade by bringing it back to 330d spec before we upgrade it, we see 285bhp afterwards which obviously transforms the car whilst still being smooth in low speed traffic, also you should see an improvement in economy by around 2mpg in normal driving.
    Well pointed out. Further investigation required.

    I had to email them as you're correct, there is no E90 325d on the site, just the standard output figures.

    I'd appreciate your feedback on this guys. Whatever I decide it's a lot of money and the dependability of my car relies on the quality of the map...

    Cheers for the update Findlay

    Not quite sure what they mean by "bringing it up to 330d spec before the upgrade"?

    from what i remember the 325d uses the same turbo & intercooler but the intake manifold & Injectors are different.

    I'm sure you'll make a well informed decision whatever you decide.

    Hey.

    I had my 535d 2006 remapped by a local tuning outfit, who actually owned a 535d do i felt fairly comfortable.

    I am interested to know what sort of consumption you were getting out of your first 535d, i have just done 26mpg (calculated when filled up.) this was probably 200 motorway, 200 town/country roads with a fairly heavy foot.)

    Thanks mate.
