I notice it's a 535 (badge on boot) it should be 280ish standard is the 275bhp right? after remap should be about 300-330bhp?

 

Mines a 530d mate, standard 218bhp so happy with the increase in power.

Pics of lowering springs required when fitted! I've got Eibach 30mm on mine and whilst I was happy with how it sat at the time, I can't help but think it needs to be just a touch lower.

 

Pics will be up as soon as they are on. Hoping to do it myself but it looks a little in depth to me :blink:

True, until you come up against a mapped one! :wacko:

 

Haha that is true, it's why it's best to put a 1.0 Ecoboost badge and have teenagers try to race you :) Trust me it somehow worked on my old Integra Type R :D

The amount of times I've considered getting a 518d badge :D (I know there isn't one but the amount of times I've seen the E90 318d try to give it some to me, it would be pretty fun) - Currently 525d 3.0 remapped

Keep us posted on how you get on with those, I'm running Continental Sport Contact 2 on mine and they're not the quietest tyre. They seem to grip will though.

 

Well these are the replacement for the Pilot Super Sports which were basically the best road tire you could buy not too long ago. I expect nothing but the best from these so we will see.

 

On my E46 M3 I had a set of standard Michelin Pilot Sport 4's (not the S) and they were amazing, in both quietness, grip and funnily enough fuel economy. The M3 was previously running Continental M3s (not sure which model they refer to exactly but that was their name).

 

I ll keep you posted once my wheels come back from the powder coaters :)

 2nd one I've had done since I had the car, 60k since the first. Personally i love a bit of preventative maintenance and I'm sure that it feels different after. Slightly smoother and less dim-witted

Where did you get it done bud and did you have to supply anything?

 

Cheers

I'd be interested too. Bought Conti Contact 6 for the front of mine but not had a chance to drive it. Off to Bristol tomorrow so will feed back anything I notice :)
