They are not even that expensive, in the great scheme of things, and can be downloaded through the Connected Drive or USB from your friendly dealer.

Anyway, got it remapped today, with 429 bhp and 826 Nm (corrected), up from 355 bhp and 733 Nm. Quite a difference, the midrange acceleration is very different, yet it still feels linear, just turned up to 11.

Gearbox service to follow next week to be on the safe side.

If I remember I think it was Anth_B and try this link may help


Thanks Graeme,

That's the one, I failed to find it again.

General X5 Forum (F15) / Remap M50D
« on: June 12, 2018, 02:34:04 PM »
I have booked my M50D in for a remap on Friday. Most of these only make 340-350 bhp but do reach the stated 740 nm torque. Projected results are 420-430 bhp and 850 nm.

I remember a recent thread where a remap ended with numerous problems but this thread seems to have been deleted. Anyone had a successful remap (not tuning box) and is there a noticeable difference? Basically miss my F10 M5 so this is to close the gap a little bit...

General X5 Forum (F15) / ZF gearbox service
« on: June 11, 2018, 02:26:48 PM »
My X5 may be in the higher mileage category, at 96.000 km,  so may be the first to ask this but I was considering having an oil service done to the gearbox. As I am in Belgium, I could go to one of the ZF centres, in my case in Dortmund, Germany.

I was quoted 675 euro, which seems a bit steep but having done some research it is very thorough service that takes a full 4 hours. ZF recommends having the service done every 100.000 km, as opposed to the "sealed for life" BS that BMW claims.

If your X5 was a keeper, would you have it done?

Rear lights are a real letdown and the “kidneys” are too big, interior very nice

I would guess 30 % worse than your F10, but depending on your driving pattern and speed.

Have a look at this YT comparisons at different speed intervals: https://youtu.be/Bh_pB9ZOaQg

Good question! My rear pads went from 10.000 km to 2000 km in a week, where I drove 1000 km. They have lasted 50.000 km so far, but will book it in just in case.

Does your car have the backup camera? I am happy to have the surround view and it is a cool feature but in fairness I would not consider what must be a very involved retrofit (new mirrors with cameras, cameras in the front fenders and camera between the front grilles + coding), as in reality the backup camera is sufficient 95 % of the time.

From a previous invoice, the parts are:
#34216768471: Brake pads 142.61 euro
# 34356854168: Wear sensor 23.52 euro
# 10000614: Service (fixed) 78.00 euro

Total: 295.40 euro

Mine needs doing soon, so curious to see if the price has gone up.

Driving though Germany I found that the S63B44 ASD sound was becoming quite wearing, and coded it back to the original ASD - over 2500 rpm it really gets quite droning so unfortunately it had to go.

What I would like is for the gear display in standard to indicate the actual gear you are in, as it does in Sport. Anyone managed that one?

General X5 Forum (F15) / Re: M50d depreciation ?
« on: May 04, 2018, 05:49:00 AM »
Having had unfortunate experience with short term ownership in economic terms, I would not entertain the idea of trying to sell an M50d 6 months down the line. At 48k it is a steal but you will still be hammered. Buy and keep at least a year or two before it makes sense.

There is no LCI F15 - digital dash (6WB) was an option.

Only differences I am aware (but not LCI) is the improved iDrive system that came in 2016 (?), which can be identified by "flat" buttons, and later the touch screen iDrive.

Personally, I prefer the classic dials but each to their own.

Having the XM5 ASD is quite entertaining. However, has anyone tried the S55B30 (M3/M4) option? I imagine it would also mean choosing in “Model” the F080. Still have to try a good run on the motorway to see if the ASD mod gets tiring.

I think you would have to be going pretty hard to having the noise droning.  It’s about 3k rpm that it starts getting louder.  That translates into quite a speed.

I do drive through Germany 4 times a year...  ;D
