My Ride: Mk VI GTI
Dinan Stage II and III software
Dinan Automatic Transmission software
Conforti Shark Injector
AA Software

The most preferred on here is the Shark Injector because it's much cheaper than the Dinan products and yields the same results. Software for E46's won't give you any extra horsepower, but will change fuel/air mixtures, rev limits and the top speed limiter.

Plus the Shark Injector got rid of the throttle delay when I stepped on the gas.
