Hi all,
I am 1 week into ownership of my m5. Le Mans Blue, black leather, UK.
I have a load of jobs to do on it but all thing I'm looking forward to getting stuck into.
It has an Evolve tune with 4:1 headers. 427bhp dyno run. Can anyone share anymore info on this? The difference with sport button is huge!
I am assuming the rev limit has increased and speed limiter removed.
It is mapped for 98RON.
Thanks
Russ

I have an evolve alphaN tune and the throttle response difference between sport on and sport off is very big. Granted I believe this is true for stock but I haven't driven stock M5's for an extensive amount of time, mine came with the tune.

Any pictures of your new M5?

Welcome. You will enjoy the beast, especially with headers (the way they should have come from the factory).

Full spec:
2001 le man blue with recently done timing chain, clutch, service. It has brembo 6 pot front brakes although they don't feel that special. Could be a little warped and might need a pad upgrade. Bilstein B8s which I wasn't looking for initially but starting to come around to. Great control but short stroke, not designed for UK country roads. Then the 4:1 exhaust and tune from evolve is very impressive. A little loud on cold start up at 2000 rpm but then perfect when driving. I need to find out more about this tune...

I'm looking forward to a high speed run at some point to see what it can do (Autobahn trip). Are there any results as to what speeds people have reached in their standard and tuned e39s?
I have a life goal to go 200mph on the Autobahn but not sure e39s are geared for it even?

Car looks great, sounds like it has some quality mods as well.

I've only as been as high as about 155 in mine (looked down once slowing down and saw that), we don't get many areas to speed on the east coast of the US of A. Need to go out west and do that in the middle of the desert.

I could be wrong on this but I'm pretty sure a Dinan S2 with stock gears was capable of cracking 200mph (204 I want to say?) because of the rev limiter being bumped. Again, could be wrong, but I think with the 7000rpm rev limit you won't be able to rev out high enough to hit 200mph. Dinan 3.45's brought it back to 194mph with the increased rev limit.
