Chipping or ECU Tuning

Just wondering how many people have chipped or ECU tuned their BMW? If so any recommended shops around?

There are lots of companies that do remote tunes. I have BMP, but I have also heard good things about Evolve tunes, and I think they have recently dropped their prices. You have an E90?

Yes I have an E90. Well those remote tunes do you need to ship your ECU away? Can't afford to ship the ECU away. So looking for some options.

The best and most experienced person around is Mark Dsilva. He's been custom tuning ECU's since their inception in 1980's. Located in the Danforth makes it convenient and his service is second to none. He has the capability to custom map the most advanced systems including AlphaN via wideband dyno (and plug'n'play... no piggy-back crap). The places you mentioned actually use Mark Dsylva software.. so just go to the source and save yourself the middleman charges. He can be contacted via email mark.dsylva *at* gmail *dot* com I'm running his tune in my M3 and my wife's modded 335i.. some awesome results were had!

Mark works with BPM on the newer cars... Not sure he will tune your E90. He supplied the cable for me when I did my E92 through BMP... Great guy nonetheless.
