Wow...best I have had out of her was 130 mph now she just pushes 145 mph and the she performs so much better! When I got off the motorway and onto B roads I had the biggest grin on my face!!!

I totally recommend anyone with an E36 that they want chipped in the UK to go to ebay and type in "BMW E36 chip" - check out the Viper 2 chip for 45 Pounds

This chap even installed it for me - all I had to do was drive to Birmingham!

The drive home was a pleasure...next stop my Magnex stainless exhaust!

No, he's new to the forums...I'm only used to the term "chipping" and the like from being around some people I know who are into that sort of thing and reading these forums a bit. A chip, in your car, can do (and usually does) certain things to help you go faster, push higher RPMs, removes the speed governor, etc. You should be able to read about them a fair bit by searching on these forums for "chip" and/or by going to the websites selling them (I think bavauto.com sells them, don't they?). Basically, the chip replaces your factory one mounted in the car.

No disrespect intended - i just saw the car in your signature and thought you must be kidding around!

I took my car to the chap to do as it was only a 3 hour round journey but having seen him do it I reckon I could install a chip for myself in less than 10 minutes

None taken. Though Spook is correct about my being a little green. Being new to bimmers (actually new to cars in general since I've always had company cars and never really gave a @$it) I've been intrigued with chipping and have been reading some of the other threads. I assumed it was for guys that raced or otherwise had places that they were able to 'open her up'. Not a lot of that here on the east coast. If I may ask.........what are the advantages to chipping for us regular commuter/road-trippper types.
