I am picking up a German spec S80 D5 at the factory on 8 November, and would like to hear from any of you D5 drivers and your experience with this car and engine. I am seriously considering the engine chip upgrade done by HEICO SPORTIV here in Germany. It boosts the 163 HP turbo diesel up to a powerful 190 HP. The package includes the sport exhaust, which I hear boosts the power a small bit more, a looks just super cool. So if you own a D5, or have driven one, let me hear from you. Best from Bavaria!

Re: D5 Experiences? (bavarianami)

There is a guy from France who did the upgrade on his S60 D5...perhaps he will see this and reply.<p>Yannis
