Got me an X5...

Bit of a cross post from X5 forum as this is the only place predominantly UK...

Done a deal on a 2016 X5 40d and picking one up next week. Really nice spec.

Does anyone have any experience of a decent remap for it? Is it worth doing?

I've got all the M Performance bits on my 4 series, carbon splitter, diffuser, side skirts, mirrors, spoiler etc and it looks great on red,

The X5 is white, and I think it would look nice with some gloss black or carbon additions to the front and back only - very few pictures on the web as I guess it's a less popular model to add the sporty bits to.

Anyone bothered and have some pictures?




This looks good... 400bhp...

I'd possibly look at spacers.

So... if you have an X5 or have seen some nice examples of subtlety modified things, please let me know!

Here's my 435i

This looks good but not sure about the little wing things on the rear bumper.... front makes it so much more aggressive looking and lower

The AT car looks great doesn't it!

Very similar spec to mine but a bit newer. I think the kit looks great!

Thanks for the link.

Congrats!

Regarding the X5 MP kit, i'd say every other F15 I see has that kit on, so not rare at all.

Whole kit in black:

Splitter and diffuser in carbon look:

I can honestly say I've never noticed another F15 with that kit on. Perhaps it's not as obvious as I thought it would be or perhaps I've just not paid any attention.

I'm trying to sort a remap out with DMS at the moment, 395bhp should be a nice amount.

Trying to strike up a deal to get my 435i over 400bhp too.

Congrats on the new car!

Old one looks great too.

I recently had my 640d remapped by Celtic Tuning. So far, so good - no issues. They came out to me and did it on my drive. They even configured the sports display dials to show the new hp and nm.

406 pages will take some time to go through, she'll just have to understand that research isn't quick!!
