Mein Auto: 335D
Jealous of Europe..... or, is my "google-fu" bad??

So, as a VERY new 335D owner, I have joined here and started looking and learning.

As I do my searches for mods, chips, etc, both on the general Web and here at Bimmerfest, most of my results keep coming up with "Tuners" located in England and Europe. Results for the US appear to be few and far between.....

Am I missing something? Is my "google-fu" lacking and need more practice, or is that pretty much the case..... US tune shops are very limited for our D's??

Seems that I have found Renntech and a few of their offices, several links to the JBD box, one that gets good reviews up in Toronto, Canada, and some references to the Eco-Tune and Evo-Tune. But again, very limited.

Thanks guys... hope you'll tolerate a newbie!!

The market is smaller here. It stands to reason that there would be fewer Porn Shops...errr...tuners...in the US.

Windsearcher,

Some basic stats is that something like 60% of all new cars sold in Europe are diesels. In the US it might be 2%. On a good day.

I'm glad JR Auto is so close to me.

Best around IMO.
