Feedback needed on 535d GT

Hi all, first post on the forum. Just got me a 535d GT, would be grateful for any feedback good or bad from anyone who has the same vehicle or knows anything I should know.

I have had one of these for only 1 month and glad chosen over the 530d as I believe looks better and rarer on the roads.
Am getting DMS remap next week as significantly more power/torque and better fuel consumption. They have done my cars for past 12 years and always proven their worth.

As expected fantastic increase in torque and mpg not hurt, am achieving 42 on same route my Jag XF diesel could only get 37.
I have used various companies to remap my cars and DMS are the best by far so I always use them for cars I intend to keep over 1 year.
Speak to Rob (owner at DMS) and tell him Graham recommended you so you should get discount, I cannot tell you what I pay as I have used their services on 10+ cars so he knows he will get repeat business.
Best of luck and enjoy.

Just bought one last week. Excellent car. Standard at the moment but will be remapped easly next year by DNA Tuning he does all my work. looking for around 360bhp before i do any exhaust work. I dont think 400bhp will be that hard to hit with no CAT or DPF and a real strong remap.

Did you do any before and after timmed runs??

Would it be ok if I pm you with my personal details so we could speak over the phone about your remap?

Thanks

By the way we both need to have 5 posts to communicate through the PM system.

How much are you expecting to pay for you remap?

Mine will be pretty cheap as I use John all the time for my projects and have had loads of his maps.

Got close to 400bhp out of my last 535d, details on my site

I guess you are looking at around 400 as it is EDC17 ecu
