We get to remap a lot of modern diesel engines and enjoy seeing the owner enjoy their vehicle’s new found personality. Tthis BMW is no exception, the 530d is what we would call a performance diesel car anyway, but with the ability to increase power and torque the car can become a real sports saloon.
This 530d started with 246.9bhp & 386lb/ft. After our ecu remap was carried out the engine now produces 330.3bhp & 430.7lb/ft.
Incredibly the torque delivery is extended across the rev range as seen in the graph below, it would normally drop off after 3000rpm but now pulls to 4000rpm.
Today we had a BMW X6 in for servicing, this monster has the Xdrive35d setup with the 286bhp twin turbo diesel.
We changed the air filter, engine oil filter, engine oil and brake pads. We skimmed the brake discs too so they are just like new for half the price!
In the garage this week we had a BMW X5 in need of a major service and replacement of some badly worn bushes. We recommended the Powerflex bushes for their longer lasting and better ‘feeling’ through the wheel!
Do you think your pride and joy is in need of a bit of TLC then why not bring it down to Perfect Touch in Hoddesdon, we would be happy to take a look and talk you through the necessary work required to get your car back to ‘tip-top’ condition.

We recently had to change the turbo’s on this diesel Range Rover, unfortunately the previous garage didn’t have the tools to carry out such a large and difficult task.
As you can see the ‘easiest’ way to get to the turbo’s is by lifting the entire body off!
Get in touch today if you think your turbo(s) are on their way out – 01992 443900
