BMW E60 530D ECU remap 280BHP 650Nm 0 to 60 video
Here is a compilation of 0-60 times for a remapped E60 530D.
Not bad for an automatic car that weighs 1.65 Ton!
The time looks to be around 6 seconds compared to the 7 seconds standard 0-60.
The car is a 2004 218PS fitted with standard Garrett GT2260V turbo charger, no modifications other than the remap.
BMW E60 530d Winter Cold START
Téli mindennapos indítások egyből tövig tekert kulccsal, az izzítást NEM megvárva.
There is the original brief in WDS:
The glowplug control unit communicates with the DDE control unit via the bit serial data interface.
The required heating output is determined by the DDE control unit on the basis of the following operational parameters:
Two other operational parameters determine the point at which glowplug function is activated and deactivated:
The DDE control unit transmits the heating request to the glowplug control unit via the bit serial data interface. The glowplug control unit puts the request into effect by activating the glowplugs by means of a pulse-width modulated signal. In addition, the glowplug control unit sends diagnostic and status information back to the DDE control unit.
At coolant temperatures below 25°C, there is a preheating period of 0.5 seconds. The preheating period increases as the temperature falls, reaching a maximum of 2.7 seconds at a coolant temperature of less than -25°C.
Activation of the glowplug system on the instrument cluster only occurs at coolant temperatures below 0°C.
At coolant temperatures below 30°C, there is a temperature-dependent after-heating period to improve idling and Exhaust emission characteristics.
Start preheating takes place for approx. 10 seconds if after the preheating time has elapsed the engine is not started and the ignition remain on.
BMW E60 530d -22C cold start
Trouble with the starter. The weather was very cold, more than -22C shown on the instrument cluster (my electric engine heater is messing the readings). The bendix had lots and lots of grease on it, which then combined with cold weather caused the bendix to engage only partially, hence the awful creaking noise during the first starting attempt.
The glow plugs were almost new while shooting this. Rough idle caused by frozen diesel, perhaps some water in it.
BMW M5 E60 V10 sounds - Hamann, Eisenmann & Manhart Racing; 1080p HD
Gijs records several incredibly loud BMW M5 E60's with the famous V10. You can see three different BMW M5's in this video. One is tuned by Hamann, one by Eisenmann and one by Manhart Racing. They all sound great in my opinion! I hope you like this small compilation of BMW M5 sounds too! This was filmed at the Dutch Supercar Sunday by Autogespot.com. Subscribe for more.
