How many miles have you put on your pbx?

Hey everybody! I have had my 3er for a couple months now, and I'm getting antsy to mod something! I've read a ton of info about the BMS Powerbox here on the forum, and I think I'm getting ready to pull the trigger. I've searched around, and it seems like most of the reviews were written within just a day or so of the install. So, my question to you is: how long/how many miles have you put on your car with the powerbox installed, and are you still happy with it?

I'm really looking to up the "fun factor" of driving the car. I don't/won't track my car, and am not looking for some major overhaul (although I'm intrigued by this turbo rumor that is floating around the forum right now). I'm planning on keeping my car for a quite a long time, so I want to make sure I will be happy with all of my mods for years to come. Thanks in advance!

it's been a couple of months and several hundred miles...for me. I am very happy with it. I can't imagine what the car will be like should I choose to reset to map 0. Throttle response is great....your MPG might go down a bit - but small sacrifice to pay for a snappier response.
