Get the RaceChip Ultimate, I have it in my 35d and the torque is simply amazing. Not sure if you have a 35d or a 35i, definitely recommended for a 35d.

What settings did you use when first installed? Just ordered for x5d, along with BAV Sound kit.

Here is a very recent thread about the 50i and RC, including links to a thread with my dyno results.

I wouldn't say it's a "BIG" difference, but you can definitely feel it. An additional 50hp & 50ft/lbs to the wheels, in a vehicle making this much power already, is not going to be life changing but it sure is fun! Best bang for the buck out there right now when it comes to power adders.

Ya def best bang for your buck. It's not like insane but you definitely feel the pull a quite a bit more. Much better than dinan for simply cost alone. $2500 for the same concept cmon man. Your just paying for the name at that point.

Fixed. I thought you were talking about having a chip over a 2500 dollar dinner.
I am tempted to get it. I was thinking of JB4, but was reading better result with race chip ultimate.

When talking about the BMS option, is JB4 for the N55 the equivalent of the their Stage 1 for the N63tu?
