E90 gone, F10 in

So I traded her in on Saturday and got myself an AUC 530d MSport which I'm very pleased with. I'll get some better pics up tomorrow hopefully but here's the shitty dealer one for now



It's done 35k on a 60 plate and got quite a few extras like pro nav/media, sport auto 'box, fineline anthracite, visibility pack (I finally have proper LED halos ), memory seat, heated seats...

As far as 'shove' goes it's about the same as the 325 with the map on but the feel is totally different through the ZF 8 speeder. I'll probably end up mapping this one in a month or two, I've read you can get close to 300bhp with these, that'd be nice if possible

Black performance grilles are the first mod on the list.

Cheers

Dave

Congrats on your new ride. She's a stunner, so chunky looking with those M Sport lines!! How do you find the handling & general feel on the road compared to the 3 series?

nice, can you map these now? i thought they hadn't been cracked, and dealers can now see if boxes have been used.

I haven't really had chance to give it some but will do next week when I'm back at work. So far I get the feeling it's just as planted but seems to do it all with a lot less 'bump', it's very comfortable but has the feel through the car at the same time.

I think DMS and Emaps can do them, I'm sure I read on 5post that DMS had done a 245ps (like mine) up to 300+. I'll have to check if it's detectable as it's got 12 months warranty that I don't want to void and I may even take another 12 out when that comes to an end.

Very nice! Not a major fan of alpine white (or any white!), but looks good!

Here's a couple of phone ones, I tried posting from my phone the other night but it failed miserably.

Needs a drop, 20's, perf. grilles and more black to cover the chrome bits
