I came really close to buying the chip. In the end I passed becuase I do not believe their claims. I found a guy on the mboards who did a dyno before and after the powerchip installation. Ready for this: he lost hp. Even Dinan says they can't squeeze out any hp.

Hey 33beto, i actually have a powerchip in my '04 Crossfire (garaged for the winter), i paid $700, so is it worth it?? I guess, you feel the increase in taking off, fuel economy is better and shifting is smoother. Keep in mind, it'll add HP and Torque, but it's still not going to make your car a rocket. I don't believe it's as expensive for older model Bimmers, I'll be purchasing one shortly for my '99 323iA. Hope this helps

just to let you know..

superchip and powerchip are two completely different things... you're thread is titled superchip, but your link is for powerchip...

powerchip is US based.. CA i think..

superchip is UK based, but has a division in the US.. or they moved here or something.. but not to be confused with superchip US.. which only deals with american cars.. confusing huh?
