any UK 335i owners had procede installed

out of curiosity

just it seems the US boys are acheiving 400bhp for as little as 300 of her majestys finest smackers

seems bloody good really.. makes me want a 335i

why is it birds want 15k for 370bhp out of a 335i over here?? what a rip off, i know it includes other parts but still seems such an excess amount of money, when people could just import a procede ecu? which i assume a least a number of 335i owners must have done already?

if not any of you 335i owners thought about it?

Tempted!
Currently exploring getting a Milltek exhaust as I think the 335i is just a bit too refined! However I want to try a demo car first...just in case it is too loud. I see they have one for a 335i coupe howver the saloon is not yet listed.
I have also looked at the Hartge (Birds) options and they are very/too expensive.
Anyone have a Milltek exhaust (or any performance exhaust) on an E90 335i yet?

I very nearly pressed the 'go' button on the Procede chip. I may yet do it...in fact, I very likely will.

The Procede alone pushes bhp to 380 I think and their exhaust etc adds the rest. I'm thinking Procede and Eisenmann exhaust for 380bhp+

I'd prefer DMS to crack the ECU though as I found their remap on my 330cd brilliant.

Yes, I would. No worries there. My sister lives in Texas so any issues I'll use her as a conduit to getting it sorted - she would buy it on my behalf and send it over to me.
I'm not worried about insurance either as I'm with A-Plan and they gave me a great price when my 330cd was remapped so I'd mention it to them.

soon as a few guys have them here I will probably get one as its a must for this engine to see off the new M3!!

With the dollar rate over 2.0 dollars to the pound we should maximise the exchange rate!!!

You should all draw staws and then send someone over with a large suitcase to bring back a load of them!! The savings would easily pay for the flight.
