Total BS.

Go with a Turner Motorsports chip, enough said.

Why people would want to put cheap **** like that on their car baffles me.

Turner motors sports chip all the way. Dont go for the ebay crap they dont work. I noticed a huge difference in power with the tms chip and im not lying.

Totally agree, it is BS mate

Go for tried and tested chips from well known makers. NEVER comprimise when it comes to your ECU....EVER

It is like these crappy black boxes that just have a resistor in them to trick the ECU into thinking the air is always cold, they are crap and do more damage than good.

Turner or Bav are the way to go, no doubt!

Dinan chip: Peak Horsepower Gain: 11 @ 4500 rpm
Peak Torque Gain: 19 lb/ft @ 2500 rpm

Tuner:Hp [email protected] Tq. [email protected] New Rev Limit 6900RPM

Perfomance gains are the same according to their website. Actually the HP comes in earlier on Dinan than Turner.
I dont know which chip you are referring to but for a 93-95 325i these are the specs for the tms conforti chip

Horsepower Gain
+ 22 @ 6000 RPM

Torque Gain
+ 20 @ 4000 RPM

New Rev Limit
7000 RPM

Since the guy that posts this has a 92 325i here are the specs for the tms chip he would have
Horsepower Gain
+ 20 @ 6000 RPM

Torque Gain
+ 13 @ 4500 RPM

New Rev Limit
7000 RPM

All I know is I have added a cold air intake which they claim adds about 6-10 hp and I have done the tms chip which claims to add 22 hp and 20 ft pounds of torque. When I installed the tms chip I instantly felt a huge power difference. When I installed my cold air intake the only difference I noticed was the sound. You will definately notice the difference it really does seem that the numbers are true in turnermotorsports case. I cant speak for dinan but tms chip is awesome.
