Don't waste your money.

I don't have experience with the actual remap, but the installation technique is appalling.

Removing wiring from your ECU plug, and electrical-taping them to a PBX pig-tail?
Maybe on an old lawnmower, but not on a BMW.

Look through the N52 technical section, and find all the posts related to misfires and other random problems after PBX installs.

i had it on my 328i coupe and noticed a pretty good difference. Never had any problems with it and it made the auto transmission much more bearable.

Isn't it a simple install like adding a JB3/4 to a 335i?

I've heard great things about the Powerbox...but that's just me hearing shit. Never tried it as a have an N54...
