Hi all,

What chips are available, or what chips do you guys run in a '93 325i ?

I presume Alpina only made chips for the B3, so no good in a 325..
What about Schnitzer?

Other makes?!

What sort of gains also? 5-20 hp?

Thougts please!

exactly. JC chips have been shown to give the largest HP and torque gains on a dyno.

But which of the chips is comparative the best option, i.e. mileage - HP relation?

Others promote the Dinan chip as superior, as it yeilds slightly better gas milage, but less HP.
