I am helping a shop owner sell a used Jim Conforti chip upgrade for a stock 1995 BMW M3 with a build date before 1/1995. These build dates had ECU #'s ending in "506".
This chip is in perfect shape.

You can check your build date on the black sticker/plaque on the driver's side door jam. It should be in MM/YY format... i.e. ("05/94").

If interested make an offer! I will consider ALL offers.

I Was Told That Once A Chip Is Maped To A Car That It's Useless For An Other Car.

Sorry, the chip will only work with pre-1/95 produced M3s (506 DME).

Im sorry to say but unless you've never used it its uless to anyone else. Those conforti programmers have something that makes it IMPOSSIBLE to use on another car once the software has been loaded. Even if the process is reversed and the cars computer returned to facotry specs via the restore process it still wont work :(


Edit: I just re-read your original post and if it is an actual chip and not one the programmers then it should work fine.

Hey Jordan,

You aren't entirely correct with your information here. Your info. only applies to OBD2 BMW cars. The OBD2 cars use a totally different module("flash" module, that can be seen on the Turner Motorsport website) to upgrade the software.


The chip that I am selling is designed for the OBD1 E36 M3, not the OBD2 M3.

OBD1 BMW cars ('95 and earlier) use a "chip" that plugs into the DME unit. These chips do not have the technology to recognize one car from another car like the "flash" module unit.

EDIT: I just read your 'edit'. oops :)
