Recommended Diesel Tuners in Sydney/NSW??

Hello,

My warranty is out in Feb this year & I'm thinking of getting a re-map done on my 06 3.0d.. Have any Aussie members done this?? Would like a recommendation for a shop in Sydney if possible? Might even have the injectors serviced and what not just for good measure!

Cheers

If you want to send me a PM I can give you the heads up on any Mod your considering and where to source them. As there is alot of false info floating around regarding remaps etc.

I haven't done anything with it to tell you true, I am kind of refraining from spending any money on mods because I am strongly considering a trade up to an E70 XM or facelift 9PA Cayenne Turbo in a years time.

The flip side is I keep and drive it into the ground.. in that case I will definitely get it tuned!

I recently traded my X5 for a Jeep SRT8 Alpine, no it's not an X5M but darn close, it's a brute I just want to keep driving with 344kw, and deactivation on 4 cylinders, I'm more than happy with fuel consumption. Worth a serious look.

Had one Jeep GC, that's was more than enough for a lifetime! never again.

I do know they've improved them vastly since the last generation but once bitten.....

I too am looking at E70. My investigations to date are that post 2009 models (and maybe late 2009) have encrypted ECU - ie 2009 and earlier can be remapped via the OBDC port. Post 2009 a tad harder.

Oh btw, get the E53 retuned if you keep it. The grin factor is worth it.

There is a bunch of stuff out for E70 XM, modding shouldn't be an issue!

I would imagine your X3 is a rocket ship with a tune and lighter kerb weight!!?
