    Remap don’t feel quite as expected

    Appreciate the reply but I’m not interested in the golf ?”! Thanks
  2. Guys and girls I have a 2008 520d Msport Manual lost the turbo on the run up to Xmas so havent had the car for the past month or so, have been driving my pd130 golf !!! So Here is the issue Ive had it back yesterday new turbo etc and with some “improvements” Egr dpf out and a remap from 177 up to 220 is what Ive been told!! My golf is much quicker had a mate drive the bmw lasting night and I was literally parked on the boot he couldn’t pull away. Dont know if it’s expecting to much from 2 tonne of car but it don’t have the feel of 220 ! It’s been with the mapper all day as it was suspected the egr needed to be re blanked a different way ! This was completed and the car ready to collect and it still don’t feel any quicker infact it feels very much standard but it does feel lighter on its feet if that makes sense ! ! I’ve paid near 1200 for all works to be completed new charger service dpf egr and the map itself. ARE ANY OF YOU GUYS ON OR NEAR M4 CORRIDOR BETWEEN BRIDGEND AND BRISTOL WHO HAVE THE SAME MODS EGR DPF 220 MAP ? I’m looking for a comparison nothing more so if anyone can assist me I’d be really appreciated i don’t want to go to a different mapper ( yet) I’d like to see how others perform first and then make my thoughts known !! Thanks in advance

    BMW E60 Standard audio

    Leaving the rest of the system as it is (see my others thread ) already installed 2x12" Vive Blackair subs in custom box in the trunk with 3 amps and 1.5 Farad power cap it's going really well so far and sounds soooooo much better !!

    BMW E60 Standard audio

    Bit of a risky thing but thought I'd pass my findings on to all, I've been doing a little project on the audio system in my 5 series, separate thread already on here, however I have ordered a direct replacement for the rear shelf speakers but they don't come for a week so today being impatient I decided to connect the standard poverty rear shelf speakers to my amplifier !!! ( don't judge ) the results are astounding my god the clarity and power they are taking is unreal !!! Probably going to now do 2 things 1st save myself £145 and cancel the components I've ordered and the second is leave the standard ones connected, does leave me with the question though if the speakers can actually handle the amount of power I'm putting through them why have BMW put such shite power through them in the first place as trust me these things are handling a beating and sound superb !!!

    Custom install 520d M Sport

    Well it's like this so far ! Seriously it's a job I wish I never started, must say though learned a lot about my 5 series and how the panels fit together but her it is so far (still needs the surround to go on) but it's in and i didn't break anything, There was some cutting involved but as I've said this is the route I wanted to take to avoid loosing any other existing feature, update 2 to follow !

    Custom install 520d M Sport

    Hi guys after becoming more and more impatient with my 5 series poor quality audio system so I've decided to go ahead with a full install and upgrade all of the audio system .... Ive sourced 2 replacement front headrests which will each house a 7" tft screen, up front a pioneer DVD player with a complete custom install of all components and amplifiers to accompany it, I will be leaving the existing head unit and speakers in their original positions, I want to retain all features of the existing idrive, Bluetooth, and navigation as they are in use daily, I will be starting this in the next 2 weeks and il post pics and a walk through of what I've done to accompany the build, The new head unit will be located in the recess in bottom of PHOTO 1 below the existing radio/cd player. This will have its own separate power supply, I am hoping the dash does not need removing for this to be installed Front of the car, 6" coaxial component set consisting of speaker, crossover and tweeters The tweeter will mount upon the dash itself to fire into the cockpit, The 6" speaker will be housed in a custom built pod in the door card PHOTO 2 (The bit we all dump junk into as you can see clearly in mine currently ) Rear of car ( The exciting bit ) rear shelf will have another custom built pod to house another 6" coaxial right behind the rear head rest PHOTO 3, TRUNK SPACE 2 x 12" ported subwoofers in a custom made box ( The plan is to only use enough space that boot space is not compromised ) Enclosure will be designed with the theory of small perameters taken into consideration, This will allow the subs to fire correctly and produce the correct amount of punch / rumble and ultimately bass that I'm desperate for. This entire system will be pioneer to accompany the head unit DVD Player PHOTO 4 Power will be supplied by 1x pioneer 4 Chanel amplifier (for front and rears) 1 x pioneer monoblock run in Phase to lower impedance of the subwoofers I have plenty of audio installation experience and I'm familiar in the use of fibreglass to design, Fit and secure the 4 pods needed, I've just had the head unit arrive PHOTO 4 and ive ordered enough dynomat to cover my living room (twice) Guys I'm not going to put a timescale on this install as I have a family and hold down a full time job so it will literally be an hour here and there when I can spare it !! I simply would love to take the car off the road and do it all at once but that just isn't an option. I can only hope if I do encounter any issues / snags along the way the community will be on hand to assist and provide advice along the way. Photos and descriptions to follow, My next day off is this coming Tuesday which will hopefully see the headunit and power supply put in, Thanks for reading all and I hope this may encourage more of you to be a little more adventurous with your 5s cheers Jon

    Advice

    Hi Dennis, The system I am looking to introduce has potential to add screens to it which I'm looking to put in the front headrests, but I don't want to touch the existing setup as I don't want to loose any of the functions, I am lookimg at a full custom install of the additional bits 2 x tv screens door pods front with 2 components shelf pods with 2 components tweeters dash mounted or A pillar boot 1 x 4ch amplifier 1 x mono 2 x 12" subwoofers maybe a power cap to assist I am happy to wire this all in myself as I've done it many many times I would simply switch volume down on the existing so I still have all functions i.e. Phone nav etc amd the use the other for when it's alone time or family travel with me
