Most of the tuners should be able to remap your car through OBD port now. There is no need to open the ECU. All the ECU tuning tool manufacturers have come up with OBD protocols now for BMW Fxx .

If your car is still under warranty, tuning box makes more sense. You can remove it during service. Remap can be detected, if looked into.

Hi Tanveer, looks like you are having a gala time with your 530d. The pics say it all!

I absolutely love with what you've done to your car. Unfortunately my wife wants me to maintain my 530d stock bone...so i am left with no other option but to drool at your mods.

Keep up the good work and hope you don't upgrade to G30 too soon. I still cannot digest it's front. And rear from far off still fools me with present 3 series!

Yes i am in talks with tuners who will be doing it via OBD port only, Makes the whole remapping process much easier and risk free i suppose when compared to benchtune.

Its actually not, But even if it would have been i would have gone for a remap, It can be "looked into" if someone with interest is specifically "looking for it" + the cost of some tuning boxes is x 2 or even x 2.5 the cost of a remap. I have a couple of nice SA at my end to handle my car too.

Thanks! I understand that some people like the car bone stock, But well perhaps you can get your car tuned, She won't know & you'll enjoy even more, Win Win situation!

Upgrading from a 6 cylinder will surely be a pain when the time comes, I won't mostly settle for a G30 530d again, Something a segment above would do the trick maybe. I agree G30 is not one of the nicest designs BMW made, I'd still prefer how an F10 looks over G30.

Ill be getting the 6 month maintenance on my car done in a couple of weeks time, Its just a couple of hours process, Its been around 5 and a half month since i got the ceramic done on my car & i have to say, I am impressed! Hydrophobic effect is still the same, Cleaning the car is a breeze! & even my dad mentioned a couple of days back to how the car shines & the gloss effect is simply brilliant, Looks the best under sun light.
