    aren't these the ones that cause your engine to overfuel? if they're similar to other performence chips i've seen they knacker your engine so i wouldn't go near them

    You can't rechip an M44 engined car, it needs to be a remap.

    If you do take the plunge and buy one, when it arrives dont even open it, chuck it straight in the bin, itl do as much good in there as it will do on your car.

    As said the chips will be for the earlier M42 318is. The M44 would require a remap. A £40 chip is not always a bad thing, they can be had dirt cheap. They are easily copied and have been about for years which keeps the price down.

    He's too much of a gent to mention it but check out the chip prices on TheEnd's website, you'd be surprised.

    I was under the impression you could'nt do much to that engine anyway to get a real noticiable gains perhaps im wrong on this esp as most will be prob 70-100k+ miles probably wont do them any favours, I would leave it as it is, but then again it is up to you its your hard earned. but if you do decide speak to the end hes very helpful and knowlegeable chap and will tell you the best route to go down.
    There's an alternative. There's always a third way, and it's not a combination of the other two ways. It's a different way

    I see you've made you're decision now lets see you enforce it.
