I don't know why, but the rear tyres have worn down after about 14k miles but the fronts still have about 4-5 mm tread :D So for that reason I replaced the rears for the ones th...

Ouch!

£7k

Not worth selling if that's all I would get.

What would a remap on a 535d give me. It's already quick at 6.5 secs to 60. Would a remap give me more mpg?
