i don't have a chip - i've got little things to worry about first but JC claims the most gains so I'll probably go with his chip over Dinan's; although i doubt you would notice a difference between the two.

Dinan chips definitely make a nice improvement. They also provide Dyno plots for each of their models available rather than just numbers.

Plus, they are covered by original BMW warranty

he just meant as an added bonus if you were driving a car under warranty.

this was already discussed and i believe the general consensus was that JC chips were always aggressive, adn dinan ones were aggressive whenever you put the pedal all the way down.
