label. It likely performs as advertised. In the US market, the two major
reputable chipmakers are Jim Conforti (sold by <http://sharked.com> and
<http://turnermotorsport.com>) and Mark D'Sylva <http://dsylva-tech.ca>. I
have been delighted with the results of JC chips on three BMWs so far,
including my 535iS.
Whatever you do, avoid an "eBay chip". If it was made by a reputable tuner,
it's a pirated ripoff copy and a violation of the tuner's intellectual
property rights. If it wasn't made by a reputable tuner, you have no way to
know it won't grenade your engine.

engine with the stock head. Some aftermarket exhaust systems weigh less
than stock, so the benefit is there's less mass to accelerate. It's cheaper
to go on a diet. Be careful with K&N oiled gauze filters: They pass more
particulates (thus permitting more engine damage) through their entire life
cycle, and they flow less air when they're dirty.
