Hello, and welcome to Swedespeed! Those are some impressive statistics for your S60 D5. I must admit that I'm not really qualified to talk with you about your performance metrics, since I'm kind of "out of the loop" on that topic. (I drive a normally-aspirated gasoline-powered 2.4 litre S60 automatic, and I certainly have not ever timed it!) So while I <I>can't</I> say much about the times you listed up above, I <I>can</I> say this..."Don't worry about the spelling and grammar, my friend, because it's the content that matters!" <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"><P>I think that I speak for most of the members here when I say that we are <I>far</I> more concerned with your passion for your S60 than your grammar! Welcome to the board, again, and CONGRATULATIONS on your new car!!!<P>

Is this possible? <P>I bet your D5 is pretty good with the ECU upgrade. Who tuned it? Do you also have a sport exhaust?<P>Again, welcome (BTW, where in Europe are you from?)...<P>Yannis<P>
halo,<P>Welcome to Swedespeed! That is some great information have have given, there are some other D5 owners here that can maybe chime in.<P>If I remember correctly, 8 seconds from 0-62mph is pretty good. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"><P>What kind of torque does a tuned D5 engine get? I imagine it is pretty massive.<P>-Drew
Hi, <P>i am from France (Lyon)<P>No, the 270 CDI does not have a chance, look at the charts, says 60-100 in 7 secs, mine in 5 for instance.<BR>That is the only data i have on the benz, but be sure it the same with the other times.<P>Only problem with the D5, top speed limiter (no more than 210 kmh means 221 kmh on the gauge).<BR>Too bad, but that will make the motor last lot lot longer !<P>Cheers,<P>
OOPS, i blew it with the 0-62 time, it is 8,7 s, sorry guys !<BR>Spelling mistake.<P>The car has no modification whatsoever, only i painted the d of d5 logo in red, so that mercedes and bmw drivers have something to watch from behind ;o)))<P>Torque is 415 NM, yes it is huge !<P>
by the way, the tuner is digital tuning <A HREF="http://www.digitaltuning.ch" TARGET=_blank>www.digitaltuning.ch</A> <BR>Mister HUBER, a very nice guy.<P>You ask so many questions, that's nice !<BR>Improves my english...<P><BR>Cheers,
Hi Halo, and welcome.<P>You might want to check with your tuner. I know some companies can basically eliminate the high speed limiter in their software.<P>Interesting info. I wish we could get the D5 here in the states. You never know, maybe soon, but for now we don't have it.<P>I understand in France 80% of the cars sold are Diesels.
