Great to see it's not just my 9-5 diesel clogging up the Project section :)

I ended up getting my EGR disabled or blanked (not sure which) as part of a remap package with Angel Tuning (see my project thread).

What sort of MPG are you getting Paolo?


About 28 mpg if it's driven hard around town on very short journeys, 45+ on longer journeys, can get 50 if driven carefully on long journeys. The car does a right old mix of driving and normally reads around mid 30s.

Coming from a BMW 530i auto that normally read 18 mpg it's amazing.....

Not bad at all (especially compared to some of the Aero drivers on here), but I'd recommend getting the DPF gutted and mapped out. My MPG has risen to around 40 if driven hard around town / short journeys, 55+ on longer journeys and 60+ if driven like an old man on longer journeys. I'd have to do the maths but I'm sure with the mileage I've done it would have paid for itself in fuel savings by now.

When are we going to see some more pics?
