Honest Sprint Booster Review

I have a 330ci automatic and hate the sluggish feeling I get when I press on the gas. I found a Sprint Booster on Craigslist so I bought it and installed it today.

Sorry accidentally posted that early haha. But anyway the installation is easy and you can mount it cleanly without any wires showing pretty easily the only tricky part is removing the pedal assembly but that's not too bad.

I have seen some people claim the difference is "night and day" I found that's only true when accelerating fr a complete stop. It instantly gets going now. Also when I change to sport mode it throws you back in your seat even better than before because of the responsiveness. Other than that the only difference I have noticed is you go into the "overdrive" (not sure if that's what it is but basically when you put the pedal to the floor) faster because of the increased sensitivity of the pedal.

All in all it does what I had wanted by removing the sluggish start but I was hoping for a bigger difference while on the highway (I haven't been on the freeway yet) So in my opinion unless you really want the little bit more responsiveness or can find a deal on one it is not worth it.
