E36 Performance Chips-what's good?

Prices range from $60USD to $300USD for chips that will make your E36 do remarkable things. I am curious as to what makes good on these claims and what is total crap.

You do not get something for nothing; however, I can see where a knowledgeable company could make a chip that would optimize an engine for either performance or economy. I'd like to hear from anyone that has had firsthand experience with these. Thanks!

1995 325i

Good questions, I think its (Claims) in part to advancing the (stock) timing and then running Premium fuel.
I had a chip in my ole 1989 Porsche 955 Turbo S it worked great, not sure on a NA engine? I have no experience in that regard.

Do your research, see if they are real recommendations from REAL drivers.
Good luck!
