    Hello mate the best performance mod would be to have the car remapped, turbo'd cars have better gains than N/A cars.

    They arent ridiculouslt expensive either i belive they cost from £250 - £450 obviously depending in da vehicle

    No probz mate. Removin dpf would make a very small difference but not hugely noticable however there r new MOT regulations now involving diesel emmissions/Dpf which means it will fail its mot if it has been removed, there is a thread about that in this forum somwhere .

    As he said, DON'T REMOVE THE DPF. From next year that will be an MOT Fail.

    Get her remapped for sure, mine cost £250 and the difference is amazing. I've done a couple of things to mine so far, just cheap mods like the new number plate surrounds etc, LED interior lights.

    Planning for some new wheels in the summer, probably go for some 20" Alpina replicas if I can find the right set.
    2009 530d M-Sport, step auto, paddleshift, 19" alloys and now Remapped...Brum Brum!!
