    Tunes for 2005+ 535d (272 HP) and 530d (231 HP) are ready! Vast shift-speed improvements in all modes, quicker reaction to driver inputs and instant closed torque converter clutch combine to a whole new driving experience! Get ready for Sheer Driving Pleasure! Stage 1: ====== The Stage 1 file maximizes the comfort by early upshifting and downshifting later. This helps to reduce noise, mileage and wear on your car. The shifts itself are a little tuned, to make the trans feel more modern, while retaining full factory smoothness. - Shiftpoints optmized for low mileage and wear - Shiftspeeds slightly increased Stage 2: ====== The Stage 2 calibration wakes up the transmission to give it a more sporty touch. Shiftspeeds are increased in all modes, combined with recalibrated Shiftpoints in D mode to give you an overall more modern and fun driving experience. WOT shiftpoints are changed to keep the M57 engine in the optimal torque range during acceleration. In manual mode you will experience faster shifts and a removed Kickdown to avoid unwanted downshifts. - Recalibrated Shiftpoints in D for better response on driver-inputs - Recalibrated Shiftpoints in S to keep the engine in the happy rev-range - Shifts noticeably quickened in all modes - Kickdown removed in M - Torque limiters removed - Torque Converter clutch closes in 1st gear Stage 3: ====== You won't recognize your good old auto transmission with our Stage 3 file. Shifttimes under WOT have been cut by over 50%, reactions to gear lever inputs in M are instant and trigger really firm, fast shifts. At the same time, the Stage 3 keeps the comfort and smooth shifts during normal driving. All shiftmaps have been recalibrated to create a way more lively driving experience than before. Last but not least we removed the auto-upshift in manual mode, to let you have fun, when you want it. - Shifttimes under WOT cut by over 50% - Recalibrated Shiftmaps in D and S to facilitate active driving - True Manual Mode - Shift delay after corners removed - Torque Limiters removed - Torque Converter clutch closes in 1st gear
