tms chip

my b-day is coming up and my brother siad he was gonna get the chip for my car as a present, im thinking the TMS chip is the way to go...unless u guys think otherwise, im open for suggestions...i took my dme out today to get the number from it, and figured id open it to see where the chip would go, thing is, i cant get it open, theres 6 screws on there, 4 big ones and 2 small ones, i can get the big ones out, but the small ones just keep turning and turning...how the hell would i put the chip in if i get it????


EDIT: Furious this is what it said on my DME

DME
BOSCH
0 261 200 413
1 744 698


and some other stuff, but this is what i thought seemed important, would the chip u have work on my car, its a 1995 325i

On my '94 325is you don't remove any screws from the acutal DME to remove the cover. There are like 6 metal clips that you must pry to get the cover off. Be careful though! Get the TMS chip, I am very happy with it.

The number with the "413" is the part number. There were 2 chips for the 95' depending on the date of manufacture. The chip changed with the 1/95-on date. It was because of the change to EWS-II alarm.

1995 325I, window tint, K&N, debaffled airbox, BMW #104 wheels, Nighthawk low beams, smoked side markers, smoked corners, smoked taillights, M3 stlye heated mirrors, various interior bits, Bosal cat-back.

yup 413 is the number your looking for, there are a few different types of dme's for the e36, but for a 1994 it should be a 413. again the only true discrepency was in 1995 when ews was introduced. in 1996 they went to obd2 and chips were replaced with sharking.
TMS/Conforti chips are the best chips for the 325 IMO , reason being is they give a better range of power in comparison to say Dinan who really gives a good mid range but the upper range is not near as good as conforti's chip.
