Maxchip Tune

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Anyone use or heard of Maxchip? I was thinking about stopping by their Frankfurt store and getting it instead of a BMS stage 1.

Hmm, they seem to care more about water ingress in their unit than protecting engines.
Please note in line 01 "The Maxchip Chip-tuning box System changes up to two parameters.)"
I wouldn't do it.

No, they reuse the free water in the fluxgenerator

Not yet. I ended up getting the "Pro" version, but I got it mailed to my home. They ended up sending me the wrong harness, the one for the N54 instead of the N55. I email them today and they are going to overnight me the correct one and should be receiving it tomorrow. I will let you know...

I'd love to hear your impressions of the tune! Let us know once you install it

I installed it! It was a breeze plugging into the TMAP and MAF (I believe that what they are called). At first it didn't really feel any different. I made some runs in the autobahn and changed the setting from 0 to 4. It definitely felt a difference while driving in comfort mode. The throttle response and pull was more like running on sports mode. I drove about 50 miles fairly hard...definitely sucked more gas while doing it. It drives with more zipp...I will update after the weekend drive!

OK
is necessary a little period of adaptation.

The best approach in order to test this product is made a 0-200km/h in sport mode

Stock results are around 17sec

A good new value for me is around 15 sec.

Remember to do the test in WOT (full throttle)
Only in WOT you reach the new max turbo boost
