A few of us have done it and I would really recommend it for those who feel like modding their cars. As Ken said, it works much better if you have other bolt-on mods.
Mind you that the effects are not instant but you will gradually feel the difference as the ECU adapts to the flash.

I think PBX and AA can work together.

Soikiu, did you order and flashed it yourself?

I used my PBX and AA Tune together on SMDs. Other than that, I put the PBX on Map 6 or 7
I ordered the Simon Tool, got the information from the ECU, emailed it to them and flashed it.

Sorry mate, thought you were driving an F30
Friend of mine has a flashed 330 and the power band is much smoother but there's no massive acceleration gains.
If you want acceleration, go for PBX

So for a 330i you would recommend the PBX over the AA tune for improving throttle response/acceleration?

Yes, but this is entirely a personal opinion:

PBX: Better acceleration, instant difference

AA Tune: Smoother powerband and from mid range onwards, you can feel the car pull more. No instant gratification, ECU needs time to adapt.

Which is why I use both - PBX for the acceleration which leads to a sweet mid range pull.

Others think differently but I feel that way about my 323i.

Interesting, happen to be free anytime? I would love to see how they work in tandem before taking the plunge (again).

Definitely need to feel it to understand. For a 330i, the mid-range is powerful but the low end really is rather lazy. You almost need to floor it to get up to 3000rpm. What if I always shift into DS mode?
