Well figures are in the article above, personally i dont think the car could cope with anymore torque than this. Cost , well i had it cheap, but that is mainly because DMS did my previous 535D so i got a big discount.

Good stuff - enjoy you lucky bar steward - still 6 weeks for me.

How many miles were on the clock when you had the remap done?

i did nearly 12.7 -100 in a stock one

If you can get near 12.7 in a stock engine thats bloody amazing as after having the remap my car is totally different in performance terms.
Is it possible that you could post your data from the runs ?

I think you will find he hasnt had a 0-100 timed, and is just guessing from his 1/4 mile run which was 102mph@13.9 seconds, so I think 100mph is more than probably nearer 13.4/5 secs.

i beat a csl m3 at the pod, in a our STOCK 335d

and did 0-100 in late 12's stock, so 12.7 to the ton seems slow for a re-mapped one to me

i will be expecting an 11 something to the ton after a re-map:rocks:

Still not getting you - How do you work out late 12's 0-100, does it take a whole second to get to 102MPH, from 100MPH - I think not. Like I already said your 0-100 was more than likely 13.5 ish

but you do not know that?! and your right im only assuming, i was just going off other peoples times where other cars have taken between 0.5-1.0 sec to travel a few mph at that speed, a merci lp640 will travel 2mph in 0.2 sec but will a 335d? at 100 mph

but i beleive i could have done a mid 13 and if i had then i would have definately done a late 12 to the ton!

the 335d is a 13 sec car standard, between 13.5-13.9! just wish i had carried on to get that 13.5:rocks:

after a re-map, on a good day it with a good driver it i think could do a high 12!!!

the day i went to the pod, i beat a M3 csl, he prob couldn drive it but says something about the 335d, and what does the csl do to the ton again i forgot..

To be fair .. on the 'good driver' front with the 335d auto box there ain't that much to do.

Press the pedal and hold it straight is about it surely?

So you are guessing then. On a 335d, to go from 100 to 102mph, will take no more than .5 of a second, you should know, youre the one always doing over 100mph. Ive only had one on a demo for a couple of weeks and I know how quick it will cover ground, especialy with the amount of torque it has.

But as has been said before its not hard to launch an auto 335D, where as to launch a CSL will take a lot of hard work, but when you get it right it will anialate most things. Well done for beating it thogh, but on another day it will beat you

oh yes definately, a csl is a low 13-high 12 car as standard, but i do think the 335d is a match over the standing quarter with a e46 m3, as i have never seen one beat a 13.5 and i know a 335d is capable of this time in standard trim.

Even so, a low 13 to the ton is far from being shy!!


there is some technique to launching an auto, but your right it would be far more challenging launching a 365bhp csl squeeze!!


i once got a 16.6 out of a 318is LOL, thats not bad really for a 140bhp 1.9 bm lol

Guys, I'm not being awkward with this one, but why should a CSL which has an SMG 'box be more difficult to launch that a 335d?

Hi Oli, how goes it mate?

Anyone who has ever driven or owned a CSL will confirm that they only come with the SMG 'box and therefore launching one correctly is as simple as...
