When Terry makes an idiot proof unit I'll buy it

Cobb will be here Monday

Too the OPs question if you want to be the safest possible do the PPK from BMW (won't do much like 20hp a joke basically), then its Dinan (they do sales periodically so I'd wait and get 10-30% off, and since you probably have an oil cooler I'd get stage 2) when installed at a BMW dealer they almost have to work together and you probably won't get left hanging. I want to pick up more info and learn a bit more (slowly at a prerequisite pace ), so I'm doing Cobb as that plugs into the ODBII port and is on par with JB4. If you have any skill under the hood or below the car, JB4 is probably #1. Cobb and JB4 can be flashed so the dealer wont know you've tuned and be able to screw you on warranty.

So in conclusion
Most power for idiots:
1. Cobb

Safest warranty:
1. PPK
2. Dinan

Best value for people who know a little or a lot about under the hood work
1. JB4
2. Cobb
