Great show and great people also. Mike and Edd may come across as a bit wide but I can assure you it's only for the cameras. I have met them a few times and they are two of the nicest, down to earth blokes you could meet - who are genuinely interested in all things car

I posted the below response on a couple US forums when the topic came up - just re-posting below that content;


Hi,

The 'nice' M5 they'll compare it with (in the opening sequence) is a very well known personal friend who I've met many times now via the UK forum bmw5.co.uk. Many of us 5 series lot over here know him very well too!

Just some pics I took of his car going up to some shows last year;







A few more shots I managed to get as we drove up (I forgot which show it was we all went to now!)





My little oil burning Diesel doesn't do that badly in the company of M & big V8 Power !

Cheers, Dennis!

Hi

A few more pictures!







Consistent initial figures;

After remap;


Myself, Paul and a couple other E39 M5 owners met up last weekend and went over to Jason at BW Chiptune to get a baseline for Pauls car and see if a little tweak would work well on the car. A very strong base reading showing a good strong engine and after some banter and re-mapping, some final results were achieved showing a good increase in power and perhaps more importantly, a smoother lower end torque/power delivery.

All thanks to Jason and his skills in this area and very soon, there's another group booked in for a full Rolling road day with more cars etc. I'll get some pictures from that event as well!

I need an M5 !

Cheers, Dennis!
