  1. Appreciate the input guys, im going to leave them be for now but will still be looking to do the EGR and DPF delete along with the remap. The car has been well looked after before me and im pretty confident that it aint been abused as there are no signs to show it. What's the standard gains do you get with a stage 1 remap on a 530D roughly? Obviously all cars are different, along with different maps and different rollers but just ranges of increases have people seen?
  2. So i have been thinking about getting mine done at the same time as the EGR delete etc on my 530D. Now i believe it was @GoNz0 who wrote that only 1% of cars are affected by the faulty swirl flaps and if that is the case im asking should we be really worried about it or is it like the boogie man. How many people on here have been affected by it?
  3. Very much so... coincidental that it went in before it happened. Fire was at the front of the car it seems but everything is speculation.
  4. interesting story here....
  5. I just checked on the .gov website then rang up my local BMW dealer and got it booked in but made sure to let them know i need a replacement car which meant it was a 5 week wait.

    Halo LED

    The lights closest to the wing is frosted if it's Xenon and if its halogen then its got a normal reflector behind it. This is my xenon pre lci as reference.

    Black Exhaust Tips

    Thats the thing... without knowing what coating is on it you will always have a risk of damaging it. Whatever you do, best bet is to try a test spot on a bit which you cant see like under the exhaust so you can tell if the product damages it before using it all over.

    Black Exhaust Tips

    That looks slick... lovely work gone into that! I've had a number of black cars over the years and they look the best when you finish them off but sadly shows dirt all too quickly. I've now got a silver E60 which hides dirt very well. lol
  12. That looks slick... bet that shifted. Question is are you happy to be back in the 535D....
  13. My 530D hovers between 75 and 95 depending on how im driving.
  14. This is why i waited a few weeks till a loan car was available. Hope they get it sorted soon mate.

    tyre bods... Need some advice.

    See thats where i was a tad confused as currently its 225/50/17 all round. one of the fronts has a nail in it and one of the rears has one in too. Was hoping to swap one of the fronts with one of the rears so if they are different offsets then that wont be possible.
