I don't have one, but deleting that front reflector would have to be on the list.

Actually, it's not a chip. It's a "piggy back" computer which intercepts signals to the car's stock ECU and changes the maps while the ECU "thinks" it's running the stock maps. Shiv Vishnu's Xede-only kit adds ~ 30HP/TQ, while his upcoming Xede/Exhaust kit adds ~ 60+HP/TQ! I'm getting the Xede-only kit; not interested in changing out the exhaust, and an additional 30HP/TQ is way more than enough on the 335i (which technically doesn't really need any engine modifications), imho.

I read over his stats and data. No offense to him and I'm humbly asking but, how reliable do you think that performance is? Is it much different in theory than a chip? I've read that Dinan himself said a chip for the 335i (plus intake) will only gain +2-3 hp.

What do you guys think of this mod? I really hope it is all it's boasting to be, but doesn't it sound a little too good to be true?

Also, when will this be ready for market so we can get some primary-source research and experience? I can't even imagine my 335i having another 40-75 hp. WOW!

I have not received the car yet. what i plan on doing (still researching, and need info) is:
1. M6 wheels, or maybe 20" Axis Shines - i dont know where to get the M6 wheels, and i dont know if 20" would fit on this thing
2. Pain grill/mesh to black
3. PROcede (if i can find a way to easily uninstall it when i want)
4. clear bra
5. tint (might go for ceramic so it doesnt look tinted too much)
6. might debadge it
7. make angel eyes xenon

I need info on all the items above. if you know of links please post away

A few mods I have done so far

Just got my 2011 335Is tinted my windows and I should have my AFE cold air intake tomorrow. I can't wait to see how that sounds/feels. I am looking into a BOV and the Dinan engine management as well.

I wish this car came with a Big Brake Kid, would have been nice....I may get one in a year or so but for 6K I could do so much more to the performance which is what I really care about.

tint

The rear window and smaller side windows are all Limo tint (5%), the front 2 are 15%. I just took it in today to get fixed because on this car, the back window has those window designs I forgot what they are called, its that outline on all the windows which seep through even limo, so they are going to put this darker strip to cover the first 3-4 inches from the top on the rear window, then it will all blend in...its hard to explain what I am talking about on here so I hope it made sense...
