Procede software for 335i in Hong Kong

Anyone here got Procede installed in their 335i in Hong Kong? I'm thinking about getting one and want to hear your experience on it. For the power gain it looks promising. Do you guys also run this software with bigger intercooler and DV(is this necessary?) Thanks..

I'm running the V3 Canbus--performance wise it's well worth your money. Be aware that there's no support whatsoever out here in HK and you're at the mercy of forum users and whoever happens to be available from Vishnu.

An intercooler may be on the horizon for me but it's not a must unless you intend to track the car. For city driving my AITs have stayed manageable despite this ridiculous summer weather of ours.

If it helps you can PM me to check out the system in person. I'm very happy that I got this over the other tuning options--it's practically given my car a second life.

Working with your garage is one thing but sometimes it helps to have direct access to the tune manufacturer. I've been triggering 30FE/overboost limps lately and it's been difficult to get proper attention from the Vishnu guys.

I'm generally handy around cars but as with most things electronic sometimes you just end up banging your head against the wall. See my threads:

http://www.e90post.com/forums/showth...highlight=30FE
http://www.e90post.com/forums/showth...highlight=30FE

Eventually I got some help from Dustin (who's great), but that was days after the onset of my problem and too many datalogs, code scans and limps on my part...

It's great that business is good at Vishnu, as I think they have an excellent product, but their customer service has to catch up with the business volume...

LOL sometimes I do think you're right. IMO the JB3 and Procede are different products catering to different ppl--the Procede is infinitely more fine-tuneable and with that, it comes with certain trials and tribulations of finding the optimal settings.

The GIAC tune is a totally different (and interesting) proposition--do you know if there are shops in HK capable of doing that flash yet?

Alvin, I know there is a shop in Tai Kok Tsui acting as the dealer of Giac in HK and I used to drive my Audi prior getting back to Bimmer be/cos of the turbo!! Theeby, I know they were quite good numbers of Audiers locally to go that shop for Giac Audi chip and conceivably, they should have the Bimmer programe which able to provide you some local support...... Damn it... Revo doesn't do Bimmer or else, Revo will be a good source for the chip as my previous 2.7 biturbo engine was chipped by Revo and the engineer was doing mine as a customs tune stage 2 when he travelled to HK few years back.. Customs tune chip is indeed heaven and hell difference in compare to mass production programe with all standard fuel map and identical air flow ratio....
