Mark D Chip tested

alright so i have the 91 318is, 5 spd, just about 170k km on her. and so i installed the chip the other night and drove it around for a good 100 km to let it reconize all the new chip, and theni drove it the other day when it was more dry out and all i can say is wow. my engine sounds better, and there is such a major increase in tourque. i shifted into 2nd gear and the car just pulled so hard. the throttle response is amazing. before it was sluggish but now its like a brand new car. my check engine light didnt come on my like my POS ebay chip too i havent been able to do a full 0-100 khm launch yet, and havent been on the highway, but so far im incredibly impressed.

i don't believe there are any other mods that have a real positive effect on the 318's. they run best stock.. and the chip helps free up that little extra hidden power.

Our local maX-real estate agent RichieRich recently aquired a MarkD flash upgrade in his (bone stock) '98 328i and felt a huge improvement (Sunoco 94 must be used for optimum gains). Highly recommended from numerous members.
