If it's too good to be true it is, we looked at this before. You're better off with BMS powerbox or ECU tune from AA, Eurocharged, I forget another one.

You know when they say " too good to be true" it usually is. I want a tune like my next breath, but I wouldn't jump on this one.

You are not going to get huge power gains on a non turbo engine with just a chip. Maximum you can get is usually 10 to 20hp

Dyno proven 60hp, yet they don't show a dyno for a 328. Gfabry is right, you can only get 10-20hp on a non turbo engine with chip alone. Plus that cheap, no I would never do it. Save your money and get something good that you won't regret.

I jumped to conclusion too fast thinking it was a 335i.

I did an Active Autowerke tune.

You'll notice more out of your 328 than I did from my 330. And I noticed a decent difference.
