Anyone running Cobb stage 1?
 
Been running the Sport LT Map (12-13 PSI) for about 2 weeks now. There's some hesitation and timing getting pulled on rare occasion but for the most part the car has a different/awesome feel to it. Just put on the aggressive map (15 PSI) this past weekend. Anyone else running Cobb?

Hi I have try many after market chips on my 135i, the best one that I fond is the jb+ plug in, I ran it for 3 years never miss fire and the can ran great, stay away from those stage 2 and 3, the only problem with all those kit are the effect on your valve due to carbon increase and over time your car will idle poorly. inspected to have them clean every 50,000 km. keep 20g aside, at some point in time your engine will fail. be ready it cost money to play. in my cases I ran stage 3 with mod, the bearing seized and I got a new n54 with all the fix on it, upgrade fuel system and pump and also the wastage up grade.

Cobb OTS maps suck. They're just generic tunes, but seeing as how easy it is to really get your car making good power and running properly, I'd spend the $250 on a custom tune from PTF. They're even based out of Mississauga. It was a total night and day difference for my car when I got the custom tune vs. the preloaded crap.

Make sure your car has fresh plugs and coils to really optimize it's health and power.

Please stop spreading this grossly generalizing misinformation.

that type of comment can only come from a software kit salesman, the fine print always say. We will not be responsible for any damage cause by our product, used at you own risk.misinformation is when you tell people that a product is safe but not able to provide warranty on the engine been used on, the next thing I have the proof of damages on the engines, next because very few people can rally afford the cost of repair, I am just giving my experience and yes I will mod my new engine again.

OP, forgot to mention there's also Wedge Performance and BuraQ for Cobb tuning.
