turnermotorsport.com has one. I got an e-mail from Will Turner who said he has a 325 and that the chip was a very noticeable improvement. I'm planning on their intake, exhaust and chip upgrade shortly.

Active Autowerks says they have one in development too.

Do you know the price of the chip? And will it work on a 328?

Nothing for the 330, I believe

Seems to have some good options for the 325,8
$769, I think.
Hit their site.

I could only hope for a chip for the 328. Unfortunately, I think the 328 is probably going to be the most overlooked engine when it comes to mods.

does the 328 have the multi stage intake manifold or is that just the 330? I have to believe if a tuner has access to your car and a dyno, they should be able to burn a custom tune for you. May not be cheap but tuning is tuning and any car can be tuned. It's just whether or not the car is popular enough for them to do it on their own and mass market it. Give them a call.

That's the 330 unfortunately.

You guys don't have anything for the 2007 323 for customers here in Canada?

We can do a custom tune for you no problem. It will take a bit longer to ship the ECU from Canada but it can be done.

how much for a 328xi tune and gains, timeframe, and price? active autowerke is really late in the game and the 328s are really being overlooked by the 335i guys.

328s run about $599 for the install but I can work out a package for you with overnight shipping if you would like. Turn around is usually about 3 days if you choose the overnight shipping option to send out to us. You should expect a 14HP/11TQ gain on 91OCT or a 17HP/13TQ gain on 93OCT.
