by KCPerformance Overview Projects

The BMW E39 5-Series 530d build by KCPerformance is one of the first generation. The BMW E39 530d was available with three differently tuned (but identical) engines. Initially, the engine produced 163hp, which was increased to 184pk and eventually resulted in an engine with 193pk.

Our BMW 530d has 300+ HP, a larger (custom) turbo, a manual gearbox instead of the automatic gearbox and custom engine management software. It is a real pleasure to drive the BMW, he has a lot of power and torque so he picks up speed from low rpm. The combination of solid hardware and software ensures that even beyond 180km/h acceleration is clearly noticable.

Besides regular maintenance, preventive maintenance containing the following: Routine maintenance including oil refills, new air, oil and cabin air filter is done every 10.000km.
