Remap back to Stock?

5 posts in this topic

Does anyone know where I can go to get my E60 535d remapped back to BMW stock settings? I can't seem to get rid of a fault after my car was supposedly mapped back to my original map (was Stage 1 for a bit but didn't like being DPF-less). I'm located in Surrey.

 

Does BMW offer this service themselves? If so does anyone know what kind of astronomical price that would be?

 

Any input will be highly appreciated :)

Did the original mapper not make a backup of the stock map? Also did they tamper with the ecu to apply the unnecessary map?

The original mapper ought to be your  first port of call.

 

If not then rather than ask for speculation on this forum why not simply phone your local BMW dealer and get a price, once they stop laughing and have digested what the work entails it may only cost an hours labour.

 

Very dependant on if the ecu has been 'got at' though obviously

 

I have done remaps on e46 dde  ecus they took about 30 minutes end to end iirc but they did not need holes drilling in them etc.

They did make a backup of the "original" however the original map itself had some issues as someone had previously tampered with it to lower fuel rail pressure and up boost instead? Resulting in something like a 2% gain over standard. Unfortunately the original mapper is too far away for me to drive the car there as I am trying to limit the amount of miles it does at the moment.

 

I will ask in BMW, however it is the weekend hence why I asked here first. Not sure why they'd laugh either?

 

I believe the ECU has not been hacked up, as the car can be mapped through the OBD port just like the E46.

 

 Thanks for the feedback!

I was the second mapper for clarification.

 

The car has been returned to its original tune, which wasn't the greatest but did have working DPF software in, the tune itself was very low, possibly hiding issues we found when tuning higher which unfortunately despite us spanking the arses of our cars for a good 2 hours, did not occur until @iiNNeX was 200 miles away unfortunately :(. The software the car came in with is what got put back on. I was unable to find a completely standard file matching the software and upgrade number on the ECU which made life harder so it couldn't go back to 100% standard.

 

Any BMW specialist with Autologic should be able to do it for you, I'd expect to pay around £80 for an Autologic update to the engine ECU. Failing that BMW will be able to do it, all you're effectively asking for is a software update. 

 

I'd also advise driving it as little as possible too as you have been. With it being a voltage issue on that sensor, it may not regen and just continue to block up. It's still important to bear in mind this is why the DPF may have failed in the first place. Let me know how you get on with it dude. Hopefully you'll get it sorted easy enough.

It has now been booked at BMW Sytner Sunnigdale for the 11th (Monday). They will be performing an ECU Software Update, which will hopefully flash and reset all settings that were previously modified.

 

I ll update this thread after I get the car back.
