BMS vs AFE tune

Hey guys, just picked up my f30 n26 about a month ago (coming from an e90).
Im really anxious to tune it after I break it in.

I know theres already many of these posts about n20/n26 tunes. But after searching and reading countless posts that have just confused me more and more, I still cant decide between the BMS tune and Afe scorcher.

So this is what I boiled it down to from the dyno charts they provided
1. AFE: 272 hp/ 300 tq for around $500
2. BMS stage 1: 265 hp/290 for $379

This is my first turbocharged car and I would really appreciate some advice with these piggyback tunes. Is it really worth paying extra $120 for the additional power Afe claims? Can you change settings via usb? Anyone with first hand experience with both?
