Ok got it. Thanks!

You can get it right away. Where are you getting it installed?

Good to know, but just to clarify only way I would lose this tune is if I brought it to a BMWddealer and they flashed my Cpu? A normal shop resetting it and what not will not make me lose this tune correct? Also is there anyway other than the feel of the car to check if I have the tune or not?

The only way for the tune to erased is if it is flashed over with a new file. Reading the file is the only way to check the flash besides driving it.

i have a stock 328i N51 engine. i am considering this AA Tune but would i need to change anything first like headers, exhaust etc to be able to experience the HP gain or the tune itself is fine? ofcourse, i will add a PE later on but not now. any suggestions as well?

There are no mods needed to take advantage of the tune. You can add any of the mods you have listed up top without a retune with the exception of the 3 stage manifold and header.

I'd like to know this too.

Also if I get the simon tool, will I get more power with aftermarket intake and exhaust?

Hey Andrew,

Do you know if any of your customers have purchased the afe 328i headers.? They have a "high flow cat" instead of a "normal cat" as they put it. Im wondering if its worth it to buy something like this (performance wise) and if you have any knowledge of them fitting or not... Oh, and if a re-tune would be required...

Here is a link to the product:

Those look strikingly similar to European spec N53 exhaust manifolds.

Not that I know of. I personally wouldn't don't go through the effort of changing headers that include another set of catalytic but I guess to each is own.

Hmm, so would you say "high flow cat" = not worth it in general or just for this particular case?

Not saying its not worth it because I have not done any testing on headers but, I would go all the way or nothing since you have a secondary.

I have euro 325i with 2,5l engine all stock. How much hp potential does this engine have? Can AA tune give me 10-20hp increase? I'm not doing 3 stage IM but i'm considering performance exhaust. What is the biggest bottleneck with this engine?
