i gotta throw my .02 for Dinan....but only if you go stage 2 and get the intake to go with it, otherwise you would be wasting your money. that setup was the first mod to my car and i really liked it.

European Supercharger Systems... or something. But they also make NA software. I had it with my headers. Nice throttle map.

Shark is easy to come by and easy to put on. You don't have to send anyone your ECU.

It's mostly personal choice.

I'm going to go with the Shark so that I can restore the computer to its original form if I need to get a software update at the dealer or something. I still have warranty so the more the car appears to be stock when I take it in, the better.

The BEST software for your car is always going to be one that was tuned specifically for it. If you can hold out until the Shark Edit becomes available, it'll be the best way to go. It can do anything that current software providers are doing, but can be fine tuned.

From the man himself....you will need adobe reader

and this is a long thread on e90post

http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=139154

Just keep in mind that this is has the ability to do all including destroy your car. But it WILL be the best! Try to find a local tuner that is willing to play with it if your not. This would be a good choice if you are thinking of going turbo () or some other FI system in the future. Oh yea you may want to look into a wideband o2 setup too.
