RaceChip for G05 X5 40i and 50i now Available!!!

Guys,

I would like to share the news with you all.

RaceChip is finally released for G05 X5 application.

Some of you probably know about it already, but they finally confirmed the compatibility with the B58 engine on the G05 X5 xDrive40i.

It is a simple plug and play piggy back tune. 100% made in Germany.

Here are the list of the compatibility:
BMW G05 X5 xDrive40i
- RaceChip RS : +51 hp and +72 lb-ft tq
- RaceChip GTS Black : +61 hp and +86 lbs-ft tq

BMW G05 X5 xDrive50i
- RaceChip RS : +44 hp and +61 lb-ft tq
- RaceChip GTS Black : +53 hp and +73 lb-ft tq

App function are also available for both RaceChip RS and RaceChip GTS Black.
The App function will allows you to turn off, change the warm-up timer duration, and change the map via your SmartPhone.

Feel free to ask any question or PM me for pricing.

News for you guys.

As of November 2019, RaceChip GTS Black purchased are includes engine warranty the same as factory.
You have to be the first owner of the vehicle and RaceChip GTS Black to have the coverage.

The rest of details are being finalized. Once they are ready, it will be up on their website and my website.

I would say it will be the same process as dealership.

I am also still waiting on the full detail and steps on the procedure.

I don't think it is a big deal since I have been selling RaceChip for 5+ years and I haven't got any blown motor to any of my customers who bought from me.

I even used it on my personal cars even to my current F97 X3M Competition.

Yep, i dont think itís gonnal blown motor too but just worried about CEL show up which for me, itís annoying to see that.

Do you think with hp increase and toque increase from GTS black, ~50hp and ~70tq we will see different? Compare to JB4 , Velos tuning and DME tuning. I would like to try because RC is plug and play and it seem not so complicate.

You should feel the difference.
Torque is what you will feel in daily basis.

CEL wise, it will not happen.
RaceChip is well developed before it is being released publicly.
Unlike others where it release a test version or beta version and see whether the end user will encounter any issue or not then fix the firmware.
I never seen RaceChip do that with end users.

What's the difference between the two tuning devices? How many sensors do they bypass?

Considering these, the Dinantronics Sport, and JB+.

Which G05 X5 engine variant that you have?
Connection can be from 2 to 3 sensors, depending on your engine type and whether with or without App function.

The difference between RaceChip RS and RaceChip GTS Black are:
GTS Black have
- 7 maps
- Built-in warm-up timer, even without App function
- 2x free reprogramming within 3 years of ownership
- 4 years / 50k engine warranty (1st vehicle and RaceChip GTS Black owner, CPO or used GTS Black doesn't transfer the warranty)

It would be 2 sensors for RS or GTS Black without App and 3 sensors with App.

For 40i, all the sensors are visible after removal of engine cover.
Very easy.

It would be the Cam sensor.

Here is the Youtube video on the installation for B58.

It has been live. Just refining the details. Lawyers stuff.

IMO shouldn't matter much. I have been selling RaceChip for over 4 years, I haven't got any major issues.
Mainly installation issues.

Is there an instructional video for the GTS Black with App control? The video from Racechip only shows the 2-sensor install. I am trying to install the 3-sensor version and I need assistance identifying the cam sensor.

Thank you for the prompt replies to my PMs and the excellent vendor support last night when I was doing the install.

So far, so good with the Racechip in my X5 40i. The additional power is what I was looking for. I will post additional feedback once I get more miles on the setup.
