Is the Dinan performance chip any good? Made for 1993-1995 BMW, E36, E34, 325, 525. I have a 1995 325is, so will this work for my car?

It says:
AN ADDITIONAL 20HP & 22LB/TORQUE, PLUS RAISE YOUR REV LIMITER +400(7000).

Should it also remove the speed limiter?
Please let me know ASAP guys cause it might sell really quick! Thanx in advanced, El Prez, hlp me out on this one. Thanx all in advanced!

I got one also, I'm willing to sell it for $75 shipped. Mines a dinan chip for 325 e36 93-1/95. I got it for my 95 but my production date is 5/95 so it doesn't work. My e-mail is brianisflyin@hotmail.com if you want to buy it off of me.

TMS chip is better than Dinan. Ebay copies are hit or miss. Sometimes they work, and sometimes you get a bad one.

About these TMS chips, what all can you tell me about them? I have been to this site and read some, but i don't really understand most of it: http://www.turnermotorsport.com/html/subca...34&subcat_id=74. I read where is says something about 325 e36 models at the bottom, but i cannot tell if that chip only works with the m3 camshaft or what? Also is this the cheapest i can find one ($350?)? If so what are the differences between the dinan chip and the tms chip other than prices? Thanx in advanced all!

I was thinking of getting a Conforti chip sometime down the road...what's the difference between conforti and the tms chips? It says that the tms's were tuned by conforti...

Turner Motorsports has a few good ones.. for pretty much all makes and models... Dinan is good... I'd stay with TMS... Conforti is a great chip... probably the best out there right now... and I think AA Tuning has a chip... not really sure though....

Thats just the main ones.. I dont know of much side market stuff...

Good Luck

Les

95 should be the OBD-I system.... I'm pretty sure www.turnermotorsports.com sells them by the year... but if they are selling them by production date... go here to find....

http://www.bmw-z1.com/VIN/VINdecode-e.cgi

Enter your vin number.. and it will give you your production date...

Good Luck

Les
