Superchip or DTUK is two different product that produces similar result.
So say DTUK $500 will be do +40hp/100nm.

There is a m3 paddle shift wheel for sell.

Like everyone else was saying, e90 325i/320d or e46 330ci.

In my opinion 320d is the best bang for bucks and fit perfectly with a cheapo like me.
Sounds like 320d is the best bang for the buck indeed. Maybe 325I as well.

Thanks a lot. i will investigate a bit more in the next few weeks and let you know. not much time to go out there and try on different cars unfortunately.

Why are we all here? Why do we ask advice when we can all go and have BMW or other garage charge you just to look at the car? Should we say the same thing to the average BMW owner asking advice here? "Oh mate, dont be a tight arse and pay the money to a garage to change you light bulb? You own a BMW" Yes, I can go out there and splash the money on a M3 but how is that going to help me on the long run when i can just invest it in a asset that gains value? Just because I am driving the ultimate driving machine doesnt make me any richer...or smarter. Why would i spend my money on petrol or rego, put more than its needed money that I make in someone elses pockets? Yes, I want the best of both worlds: power and cheap petrol/diesel, good looks...who doesn't? Hence the mods that you can make to have a faster car...right? If I wanted to get only power I would've got a Falcon or commodore piece of cr*p, and scratch my privates every 3 minutes. But I am not even considering it...both of them. Like many of us here, we all have decent jobs and run businesses and all. I am not trying to pose as something I am not. i love BMW's because I like the way they drive (from the old E21, E30 up to E90...which I drove the other day) the way they look (in most cases) and their filosophy in building a car. Fortunately enough they are NOT the only ones. At the end of the day is just a CAR.
You on the other hand my friend, with all due respect sound a bit like a tunnel vision tosser that uses the car as a reflection of their status (financial, social, etc) that (maybe) thinks BMW is the best car on the road at the moment.
I came here to ask for advice and help (when i will have my turn) other respected members of this forum. And, I was surprised by all of it...and from all the read I did here plenty of you get that support when needed and I really appreciate it.
But hey, thanks for your comment and support.

Yeah!!!! and that's the !!!

Dude chill you're not understanding the pcock sense of humour.

Save money and grab a Great Wall or Chery, will have great performance for the dollar as well as being totally low cost in maintenance. Take it from a fellow Panda brother.

Not true. There was one 335d coupe on carsales and I've personally seen another 335d prelci e90. The owner said they imported it when they came from the UK. So there are at least two 335ds.

I would love to have 1 of those !!
But have said that looking at the performance between the 330d vs 335d not much of a difference. Which I find it really hard to believe?? And I believe it is using the x6 35d engine? just in a 3 series body?

330d isnt as easily tune-able as the 335d

tunes/chips have been released for the 35d all over the U.S and UK. Jeef beefs X6 35d has a JBD and he mentions quite a large torque figuire jump

If the 335d was in australia i'd jump in one of those over my 330d

Damn Mondays. It didnt start very well for me so...oh well. I should probably appologise to Pcockley for being a bit toooo defensive and maybe offending him.

had a look at 335d...sounds and looks like a beast.
