doesn't really matter I just want to read more reviews. I'm one of those consumers who like to read a few reviews before making a some what big ticket purchase

cool. well Ben (Nebster) is currently running their tune on his e92 335i and I believe 2 or 3 other guys from Chicago will be getting theirs done in the next few weeks as well including another 328xi (but an e92).

I'd really love to see someone run it on their RWD 328's to compare numbers to mine.

Hey Udub, on an OT note... What new clutch are you getting? Just another OEM one? I need a new clutch soon and don't know what to get. :P

not getting one.... the stealership says my current one checked out just fine, the slipping and burning smell was most likely from my summer tires. It felt ok today, maybe it was the colder weather while I was there (it was like 42 degrees so maybe the rubber was too cold to grip). Hopefully it'll be nice and warm on Tuesday.

All I know is they won't touch it so oh well.

worth a shot but they told me unless something indicates its fried from driving it or it throws a slipping code then they won't touch it... too much work to get to it and have them find out its in good condition

intake doesn't void your warranty.

Are you going to set up a group tune?

true, but what I was trying to say is how many whp or torque does an intake add compared to what this has done in its 1st try?

you are right, it could potentially void your warranty. HOWEVER, I had my car in for service today, they told me specifically they checked for codes and found NOTHING. So this tune was legit in its claim to be invisible at the dealership, can't void the warranty if you don't have any proof the tune exists.

There will be no "group tune" to my knowledge (IMO the price is pretty cheap as it is), I am just here to relay info about what I found and get as much info out to all the fellow N52 guys from from the guys at CS Tuning/LET Motorsports and give my personal review about it so if people are interested in it, they can get it done as well. I don't work for them or am sponsored by them or anything.
