Performance Chip in stock 328i

Is it worth it?Any real gains in HP and fuel efficiency?I know they claim there is,just wondering if they really do gain enough to try one.

No, but what IS worth your time: Suspension improvement

Simply replacing shocks w/Koni Special Active Reds + Michelin PS4 will do....a lot!

Think about more camber.

They don't make them, actually. I've looked for tuners for the N51/N52 engines and there really aren't any. If you want a faster car, go with the 335i platform.
