Just bought a GForce Chip for my '09 335i. Anyone have any experience with this? Have heard good & bad and I want to make sure this is worth it. Thanks!

You've bought it. NOW you want to make sure it's worth it?

  • NOTE: Discussed here in the past
  • NOTE: SEARCH function above reveals all

Wait....you're shilling these? I wouldn't.

He's a little less subtle but his point is we kinda help people on tunes for the 335i almost daily lol

As far as the one you selected I have no idea, I would never look at another tune with the massive followings that Cobb, JB4 (BMS), and even Dinan and some more obscure ones like say ESS/Renntech.

Personally I'd try and sell it and pick up a $479 JB4 or 599 Cobb or 800 v2 cobb unit. You would have a much better proven track record of reliability also a massive community to help mapping/diagnosing issues on e90 and here.

Good luck
