Tuning Questions!

Hello all, I have a 2013 328i xDrive n26 with almost 121k miles on her. Sheís been SUPER RELIABLE. Iíve only had to replace the seized tie rod ends. Was $670 for inner and outer both sides. I cannot complain as the car itself is very good, anyways I am looking to do some tuning, nothing too crazy just to draw a bit more power out of Paris (my carís name she is in a gorgeous Alpine White.) I know tuning will increase wear and tear on the engine which is understandable, I am just not trying to destroy the engine. So please give me some good starting points! Most appreciated, FYI. I had an e60 before this, 04 530i. m54, most nightmare car I have ever owned.

Look into Bootmod3 (BM3) stage 1 flash tune. You do not need any supporting mods for stage 1 except it's recommended to replace your stock charge pipe due to the increased boost.

I'm running BM3 stage 1 on my 110k mile N55 AH3 with an FMIC, catted DP and charge pipe as supporting mods. Just finished a 4,000 mile roundtrip from Utah to Pennsylvania and back within a week. Knock on wood ... car has been very reliable with BM3. I do not go to the track. Just enjoy the added power when needed.

The increased boost most likely will increase wear and tear on internals. Recommend you are diligent on your maintenance and don't be overly aggressive with the power increase.
