AA tune

Hey everyone im thinking about getting an AA tune. Is this the best tune for the money? is it possible for an average person to install it himself? If not how much should i expect to be paying for it to be installed? I know that it gives 15 extra horsepawer/torque but what else does it do? does it make the lag in the gas peddle go away? Does it add to mpg? please give me advice, info, and opinions. thanks!!!

Yes, it is the best tune available for the 328i, you can go with powerbox from BMS but AA is more pro.

Installation can be done home, no idea how much it would cost you if you want someone else to install it for you.

and yes it takes away the " lag in gas peddle " aka better throttle response.

No, It does not add any MPG.

If you have have the money for it, go for it.

I'm pretty sure they would send you a DIY with the tune, email AA to be more sure about it.

Vast majority on this board report an increase of 1-3 mpg with this tune. I can't be sure if they are relying on the car's computer for this number (dubious) or actually verifying the consumption themselves. Personally, I saw a whopping .5 mpg increase on average. This is verified the old-fashioned way but could easily be down to seasonal blends of gasoline now that winter is over. I did see an impressive 30.14mpg on my last long trip, which is better than my previous best of 28.84.
