There's several out there. If you go to the N$& board you will see a lot of discussions about them. The Racechip seems like the best combo of price and performance 220 hp, 360 lb-ft. https://www.racechip-usa.com/chiptun...5)/328d-134kw/

Done deal - ordered this in a 2015.

Love the OP's ride - any exhaust upgrades??

Thanks guys! Yes, the Ottos sticker was gone before I finalized with the finance manager ;-) Same for the stickers BMW loves to put on the glass.

Last week I drove to Cleveland for some vendor visits, approx. 1200 miles all in. I averaged 42.7 mpg on the way out with typical speed in the 75-85 range, mostly around 80. I hit 4 construction zones which slowed me from stand still to 20 mph and I had to deal with lots of trucks jumping in front of me in the left lane dropping my speed to 60 ish. On the way back, I averaged 40.9 mpg in the 80-95 range, keeping it just shy of 90 for most of the haul. Similar deal with construction zones and left lane slow pokes. Non stop drive of course.

M Performance grilles and 35% Llumar ATR tint went down recently. I'm desperately waiting for Bilstein or Koni to release dampers so I can lower it with H&R Sports!

Cool addition to your already awesome fleet :-)

Not interested in exhaust honestly as I feel the sound from an open diesel pipe doesn't match the car much. I'd rather get more turbo noise and I like the diesel engine noises

I know it's probably not on the same level, but how would you say it compares to your E46 acceleration, handling wise?

Not comparable in any way. This is a great DD, not a sports car and IMO the E46M is on of the best performing total packages ever made. I do feel with dampers/springs the F30 will handle much better - the XDrive suspension is soft and does not do too well when being pushed hard.

Looks good. This weekend I have an F31 as a service loaner. I'm surprised how much I like it

4 months into ownership.

I average 33 mpg on my daily city commute when driving normal. I'm in the low-mid 40s at all times on the highway, while passing most. One of these weeks I will drive super easy to see what type of economy I can get out of the car...

I gotta say, for an automatic AWD car that is just over 4000 lbs with me in it - these results are phenomenal. Can't wait to see the new BM diesels!
