lol... this was back when I first got my 90...
Oh, what a n00b I was. lol. I ended up getting a somewhat custom tune. Dinan was way too conservative for me.

m20 w/ 8k revlimit = fun.

LOL! So that is what I have, a 90 525i and I want to upgrade some stuff. I want to do a chip, but not sure which one to get. Any reccommendations? I would like to gain some horses. I already did a k&n filter and adapter, eliminating the airbox. What else can I do? I did clear front directionals and replaced all of the headlight and foglight bulbs with silverstars. Not realy the look I was hoping for... $120.00 later. Errr.

nahhh!

it rev'd DAILY to 7500+ and maintained engine speeds of 7000 while cruising just for the heck of it.

It's fine.
Doing that to my 540 would be a little different.
