Hey I have a 1990 525I and I am wondering which chip is best for me.

I found the one on bavauto and it looked pretty good....

But I do know there are other choices. So what do you guys think? What chip is best for me!!

BTW: My car has A LOT of miles on it and I was just wondering if chipping it will in any way make my car die faster? It is on its last legs already.

Honestly, regardless of papers and numbers, in that particular car, you won't notice a difference between chips at all, so go with whatever you can afford.

Put it this way: The chip itself won't make your car die faster, but your obviously buying it for performance, so you driving your car harder WILL make it die faster...
