If you are NOT tech savvy, buy a Turner chip...

If you ARE tech savvy, the only option is a WAR chip.

you clearly didnt bother to search or even read the stickies. Why would anyone help you seriously?

Hi de kala,
I've done the research on chips and the Miller "WAR" chip seems to be the one to go for. A lot of the US guys don't appear to regularly drive long distances as we do in OZ so the flexibility of being able to select a chip which has multiple tunes eg. economy tune vs performance would probably suit best. When I have the $'s that's the way I will go anyway.
Cheers
Weisebar

Are you capable with a computer? WAR chips allow you to load your 'own' tune...so you would need to know what you are doing around a computer so you don't botch that...and then you would also have to know your way around a car if you wanted to make your own tune...most people can barely do either...those people shouldn't buy a WAR chip. Do a little reading on the subject. Anyone with thumbs can install a chip...physically...not everyone understands a WAR chip...

Rude. Where's propellerhead with his ' Rude/Inflammatory Posting' infraction?

Thanx guys. I spent about more than 7 hours of research yesterday and found that the EAT chip is the one so i bought it. They said that the EAT AND THE WAR CHIPS are the same. Pluse yes we are into computers. And i asked you guys only because i dont want to try any thing bad n fake because my biemmer is one of 14 ever imported to Australia so i have to take care of it no matter wat. thanx guys any way and will see how it goes with eat chip. If dont like it igo a head with the WAR CHIP.

Hey de kala, when you install the chip let us know of the difference to performance. A re-chip is on the list for me also.
Cheers

I have had the EAT chip in my 95 525i for at least 6 years. Works great, better low and mid range power. Egone seems smooth. Must use higher octane here in the US. I average about 23 mpg with mixed driving. I have woindered about the WAR chip. However I do not really want to play with different tunes. I just wanted a better running car.

de kala 10-04-2012 01:55 AM

Sure i promise just let me get it first. :)

MeanM50 10-04-2012 07:47 AM

The WAR chip and EAT chip are NOT the same thing or even close.

The thing I really like about the WAR chip is you can have a few different tunes loaded and switch between them on the fly. So I can run the 'economy tune' while I drive to the track (25mpg's+) and then turn the knob to 'track use' and rail it to death on the track...(more HP)

To each his own, but having multiple tunes on deck seems like a great thing to me. (and nothing against EAT chips...they are a great product)

de kala 10-05-2012 07:46 AM

Man thats why isked this question koz i have no idea about these thig. Its too late for me anyway i alrady bought the EAT CHIP and its on the way to me i hope :)

I would like to see how well the war chip works with the automatic 95 525i built 1/95 or later. Anyone?

Based on the fact that you can load your own tune: it'll work just as good if not better than every other chip on the market...asking if the WAR chip is right for you/your car is like asking if breathing is good for you/your lungs...you simply can't go wrong.
