^^ Why do you ask questions for which you already know the answers? And if you googled after posting the thread, why did you do that? Google is always first, then search function within the forum, then posting new threads

Anyhow, yup, it seems you have a Bosch Motronic ML3.3 according to this site at least: BMW fuel parts available from ATP

Is there a more common ECU available that is a direct swap & that has a few options in performance chips?

And my tacho redline is 6500 RPM

I would try calling or e-mailing Turner MotorSports and ask them what they can do for you. They will know if their catalog chips work on your car, or maybe they have already made chips for others with your same ECU.

I don't mean to be a jerk, but I want to double-check: did you call them or email them, or did you just check their website? If you haven't called them directly, you still don't know what they can do for you. Maybe they don't have anything available, but it is worth checking in my opinion. If you already contacted them directly, please disregard this entire post.

Emailed them and they looked into it, and even double checked.
They have nothing available
I suppose I won't get much more performance anyway, the car pulls and revs real nice up 6500 RPM. I'd only probably get another 500 RPM wouldn't I?

Thanks horse but now I'm confused.
Why is it when I google search my DME number it tells me it's a Motronic ML3.3, yet the application guide that you gave me tells me I have either a 1.1 or 1.3

call your local dealer and give them your VIN - they should be able to tell you exactly what you have. They dont charge for that service
