Congrats on the new car. I’m in the same boat, but decided against it. If I was going to get it done, I’d go to one of the big players, rather than the shoddier ones. I was going to go with DMS automotive, but they wouldn’t guarantee their work, and said that if their map caused an issue, they’d remove it before my car goes to the garage. WTF??? :blink:

Hello Chaps, Laidies,

Early apologies if I’m the 800th member to come blasting all over your pages with the same generic topic and banter about this. I’ve been an avid RS6 lover and owner for many years and in the last few years my “significant other” and I have started a family and I’ve had to keep car seats away from my other lady, I just had my RR vogue V8 go back after many negative experiences that I will not go in to here. 

Role on my New M50D which I have had delivered this weekend, I think we are going to get on. But I have issues .. I know she’s quick, for a 4x4 but really !? This is it .. no, I refuse to believe that with twin scrolls etc turbos everywhere this is what BMW expect us to have. I want to keep the car obviously Running well and not start chucking gear boxes but I need a stage one remap at least to deal with the 1st & 2nd gear boost restriction it’s killing me ! Could I please have some advise and information on people that have been here and gone with the remapping, I don’t need huge increases, I need the anti boost police to at least tone it back a level or two.

Thank you for listening to me rant ! Also a pic attached as it’s my first post. To top all this off it’s snowing all
Week and I’m on new car week ! Bollocks .

Hello Mate,

I’ve just spend a long time looking at your topic . You will find a car in your budget . I don’t recommend PCP on a used car like that maybe just personal loan or HP on your remainder, I found the bigger the spec the higher the demand and this pushed the price right up. I’m sure in June you will get a very nice car low miles @ 40k ish spec depending.

Good luck

Hello All!

Saying Hi! Ex Landrover convert back to BMW. Never again! Spent the last 3 years with the 2015 Vouge V8, endless problems. If only I had more text room I could go in to details. Anyway, as I just don’t have the time to spend in Landrover hanging around the coffee machine waiting for a courteous car to be provided I have purchased a 2016 plate X5M50D ex demo great spec Mineral White, full carbon kit, 21” she’s beautiful, and really love it. Small problem, On paper = great, but I’m really not loving the restrictions in place - 1st & 2nd is just frustrating! So I’ll see you on the remap thread !

Have a great week people .

Ideally, no, but whether it matters in reality?  I doubt it.  As long as the tyre plate on your B-pillar says you can use V or W ratings and the load rating numbers for that size are OK then you should be fine.  You have the same pattern all round anyway.

V & W ratings with 107 load index are listed for 19” wheelsets.

Mine first came on last August and went out after turning the ignition off then back on again.
It wasn't until December that they came back on and wouldn't go out .

The letter is for the speed rating.  They should be the same, but the key is to have both the number and letter matching or higher than those on the tyre pressure plate.  The figures used on the plate are the minimum that can be used on each axle.  From memory, the E53 has different load ratings (the number) front and rear.

V is 149mph and W is 168mph, neither of which you are going to exceed.
