325xi tuners

I am thinking about getting ECU upgrade for my 2006 BMW 325xi. Should I do this in order to gain a few more hp or is it not worth the trouble/money? I just want my car to be fast and have a quicker response and acceleration.

The BMS Powerbox is a good off the shelf option that will make the car more responsive. If you are after a custom option, I'd suggest the Active Autowerke tune which we offer on site here in Northern CA or we can have you send the ECU in to be tuned if you are not local.

I'm in the same boat. I'm going to do an exhaust and an AA tune. Haven't decided about the three-stage manifold yet.

What are a couple good/reliable websites for ECU upgrades for a 2006 325xi? I want to get this done for some more power but I am pretty new to this car upgrade stuff.

I wrote a couple of detailed reviews of the OE Tuning software on my 2006 325. Search for my posts in this forum, or search for OE Tuning and you'll find them.

I do not know where you are located but if you are in the New York area we can offer you a tune while you wait. We offer both tunes that were talked about in this thread (Active Autowerke and OE). If you are interested in making an appointment we are located on long Island and you can reach us at (516) 870-0351.

+1. end of thread. do this and you will be SO happy. I do not have a 325, but as a 330 owner, with the above listed mods (minus the 3 stage upgrade) I could not be happier. Even though the 325, and the 330 for that matter, will never perform like a 335.... you will love the way you car feels, and will enjoy driving it that much more.

In the end... isnt that whats its all about?
