Installed BMS Powerbox

Bought the BMS Power Box when I was in the states a few weeks ago. Got around to installing it last weekend. Took about 2 hours going very carefully so I didn't break any clips on the various housings and clips that needed to be removed. It's a little bit intimidating but really is something that anyone with basic mechanical skills can handle.

The result? WOW!! The throttle remap makes my 325i feel like a completely different car. Gone is the acceleration lag that used to make me wonder if my car was normal. Now it feels better in D mode than it used to feel in DS mode. I know there's not much additional power but what's important is that it feels like a much faster car. I *highly* recommend this mod as really good "bang for the buck".

Kind reminder:

Don't use Map 3 unless you get Okada and K&N drop in

Please tell me as well--I've been running map 3 all week. And I'm still using the 87 octane gas I had in the tank.

I'm curious as to why as well....
The BMS was the first mod I did and it worked great without the okada and upgraded intake...
I have since upgraded both tho...

the okada's are so expensive, but i've been doing some research and they seem quite amazing.

No need worry, just personally think the engine response is too "chok" if using Map 3 without Okada and K&N
