performance Dinan Chip


So im debating whether or not i should get a performance chip from Dinan
for my BMW 318i

The chip will give me:
10 horsepower
19 ft lbs of torque
top speed governer

All for the price of $199.00, DO you guys think its WORTH the money for that little horsepower. Taking note that i plan on keeping this car for a long time because of its great condition and the only complaint about it is that its not THAT fast, i know it wont be GREAT speed, but just enough so i can pick up speed quick when i want it to...

Thanks

Do it! You'll be thankfull you did. You'll have to use 91 octane i think, but you'll love having the chip in there!

Exclamation hmmmmm.....

thesee are the stats...

The Bmw 318i has:
produced 85 kW (114 hp) and 168 Nm (124 ftlbf)

So that would make it 124 with 133 ft.lbf or torque

B)

Conforti is greater than Dinan in my mind. Plus I actually didnt look up the gains for your car, on my 325i the conforti made more power.

I got a chip from ebay...39.99, and it's been fantastic. Good performance gains, and it seems to be doing the job just fine. The numbers for the hp/trq gains for the ship I got a stated to be the same as Dinan.
