We do intend to make a charger kit for the E90's. Just not before early
next year. We have many projects on the board right now that have to be
completed before we delv into the E90 platform.
Thanks for your inquiry!

That's cool then, they finally realize that we want it. I think it was too early after the release of the car when I asked them and instead of telling me that they didn't know they prefered to tell me it was under development. Either way I can only tell you what my experience was, I deleted the email a while back since it was so old and pointless to keep. Anyways, I'm happy they are at least taking it into consideration. It will be great to see it come toguether.

Sounds to me that by the time it's done, we'll only be a year or so away from the E9x's replacement.

That might give you an idea on how long it might take if they are really working on something. I'm done hoping. I got my intake and some exhaust parts, Hamann mid resonator and Remus muffler, that's a start. No one has even developed a chip to tune the ECU. Active Autowerkes has a dead thread on the Sponsors NA engine parts section with a lot of questions and no answers. That right there tells you the kind of attention our NA engines are getting, which is none right now, and as long as BMW continues to make TT engines that are easier to tune, aftermarket tuners will focus on that due to the higher demand and low development cost.
Autothority has a tune for our cars now.

I emailed them about my 330 and they said they had it. If you have something other than a 2006 330, just email them, they'll get back to you.

Hello,

Yes we do, you can expect about 20 hp gain and cost is $795.00.

ECU must be sent in to us for programming and turn around with in 24 hr



Regards,

Min

Turner Motorsports also has a tune listed for the 325i. They too quote 20hp. Check out their website.
