Your Ride: 2001 X5
X5 Diesel ECM


I have a UK (Right hand drive) 2001 X5 sport diesel which has been professionally tuned (sorry do not know by whom). I am in process of selling the car to move home to Norway, where I plan to buy a 2002-2003 X5 (so the same 184hk version). Does anyone know if a ECM from a 2001 would fit a 2002 or a 2003?

Also, how are the X5 usually chipped? Are they remapping the original chip, or are they usually installing a unit between the BMW ECM and the loom?

Where is the ECM located on my car?

Appreciate any help

They should fit, not much difference between the 01 and the 02.

Remapping depends on the tuner.
