    F10 LCI 530d MSport.F15 X5, E46M3
  1. absolutely gorgeous, wheels and car. Badly need an E39M5 if anyone knows of a low mile facelift for sale in Carbon Black !
  2. Terrible E39M5 colour in my humble opinion- however each to their own....
  3. Remove a drop of oil ( careful if hot) and check the level accurately with dipstick also. I marginally overfilled when I did an oil change - easy to do...
  4. Thanks very much. That looks great. Now heres my worry- its not the body pre/post LCI - Its the front caliper design. When I get a chance I'll check on real OEM but see your front caliper is a snug fit next the spokes and the caliper is curved/relieved to allow the spoke to clear. My caliper is more of a straight block without that curve . Hence my LCI question.
  5. Bigshout, is your car LCI. Looks like its petrol? Just trying to figure out what front caliper its got and ifs the same as the LCI 530d? Thanks
  6. Thanks Matthew and Bigshout @Bigshout, do you mean 343m ( vs 334m) and also you mean 285 rear and 245/55 FRONT? Thanks !
  7. Sorry to hear this- sounds like a right nightmare !. So as to protect the reputation of the good tuners and those of us who are thinking of remapping can you tell us who your tuning experience was with or tell us who it wasn't with. A few of us on here have been considering Simon from EMaps....If you can confirm it wasn't him it would be helpful ( and I'm sure hed appreciate it). Hope you get sorted soon
  8. Apologies if this is a repost but has anyone successfully fitted F10 OEM M5 wheels & tyres to an LCI F10 530d. I believe the front caliper changed Pre LCi to LCI and the 530d has bigger discs. Thanks
  9. so what ate the non RFT Goodyears like then in comparison to the RFTs?
  10. Oh Dear! Not sure I like that idea. That's heat applied t board, risk of ESD damage, resoldering and all that can go wrong with that etc.
  11. HI, Yes I'm interested. Just need notice to have the time. I think Simon travels up to the north West so as I'm coming from Dublin I might coordinate to meet him around Chester area. He mailed me back a whikle ago and I had a few questions but don't think I got a reply. Hes quoting "The BMW F10 530d engine we can take from 258bhp up to 325bhp and the torque from 560nm up to 660nm giving a very impressive performance gain and all within safe design tolerance of the engine and drive train components " which is impressive but seems a big jump. Quoted £299. I wanted to know if his remap is via the OBD port or ECU out /replace etc. Hoping its via OBD port......? Does it increase responsiveness in various modes equally e.g. eco pro, comfort, sport etc. Also curipus if he does some other coding on the F10? Cheers John
  12. Interesting. What car have you and is it LCI? I believe there's 2 different front calipers designs, one (earlier?) that is tapered that accommodates the 20" M5 wheel.
  13. It's indeed 7l. It needed a big more to bring it to max.
  14. Big shout, do you have 20in avant garde wheels, (OEM m5?) on yours?
  15. Agree with this. I had this done with my old E39530d , subtle mod rather than the down turned OEM. Easy for an exhaust shop and they will have several deigns to choose from.
