Newbie here :)

Hello fellow bimmer Drivers, I recently purchased my second beem (2014 428i f32), and I would like some advice/tips on my thoughts.

I just bought a BMS Stage 1 Tune chip and am planning to install it when it arrives in the mail. Any precautions I should take? Is it worth it? Will it damage my engine? Will it void my warranty? Is dyno necessary? (I barley know what that is)

I also would like to install the injen Air intake, but I've been told that it would have negative affects, because the Germans' intake is already so good.

I looked all over these forums and youtube to see a genuine review about the BMS stage 1 for the 428I n20 engine, but I couldn't really find any helpful threads or videos.

Don't mean to offend anyone due to my ignorance either, just looking for some friendly advice.

Hi there : )

I don't think that you will find many chip fan here in the f34 forum But if the 28i is not enough for you and you want some improvement I would strongly suggest you to go with the ac schnitzer performance kit which contains a new intercooler and a catalyst also. Ac schnitzer upgrades won't risk your original warranty.

This is the F34 forum. But as long as you're here:

I trust BMW engineers to decide where to draw the line between performance and reliability.

The same applies. I'm not an automotive engineer, but I am an engineer, with considerably more than rudimentary understanding of how engines work. IMO the stock intake isn't broken, and something that isn't broken can't be fixed.
