As long as the ECU Flash aka "Chipping" is done properly, there wont be any damage done to the vehicle however using an automatic transmission will not bring out the full power delivery of the engine. How familiar are you with driving a Manual Vehicle? I have a long commute with traffic and I wouldn't look back into a Automatic. Why do you want to even "chip" the car if you dont know how it feels? Try both out and see which you prefer. "Chipping" is not a night and day difference with the 335. The power feels similar however the response is quicker in the throttle. Try Both out, Im not entirely sure you've driven them for a long enough time to make the judgement.
