OE Tuning - any one have experience with them?

Hello members,

Just wanted to check in to see if anyone has had tuning/flash done by OE tuning? I did a search and couldn't find much information pertaining to non-m bmws. This chip seems more popular in the e90s and FI cars, but it is also available for NA cars.

Here is the link:
http://oetuning.com/

I am particular interested in owner's thoughts in performance increases, drivability...for a 323 would be better.

http://oetuning.com/index.php/produc...i-e36-2-5.html
I think there is a typo on their website as this should read e46, but it reports 17hp increase, and 18 torque increase. Not bad for $400 in my opinion considering what we spend on our cars.

any thoughts or feedback welcome

ive had my car tuned by OE Tuning along with a bunch of my buddies....My one friend has a E46 330Xi That was just Tuned by OE Tuning. he said that he raced his buddy (E46 330Ci coupe) both from a dig and roll and before he was tuned he lost by about a few cars i want to say 2 maybe 3 cars. After the tune he said from a dig he has the coupe now by about 3 cars lengths and from a roll it was like 4 or 5car lengths. My buddy is extremely happy with the tune i know he plans on having the car on a dyno soon so when he does ill post up his graphs for you guys to take a look.

interesting! im thinking about swapping from AA to this and see if i can get any better results. On your dyno graph whats the gains from the chip without the G s/c? kinda confusing. When they did there custom dyno time how long did it take? Did they try to get it done with or did they sit on it and work things out for a lil bit. Also How was the customer service and would they let us back there to see our babes on the dyno?

least you know what you are getting with dynos... The graph is set up to show the hp going to the wheels with N'A mods vs F/I mods what you are looking for is the first N/A line to compare with other companies that are producing N'A tunes for the same car. Ignore the F/I plot!

I personally know someone that knows the OE Tuning guys and have hung out at their shop. Very cool guys and of course they'll let you watch your babies on the dyno. I am gonna get my car tuned by them too. They do lambos and ferraris all the time. So our little E46s are nothing to them.

You sure it's a typo? E36 323s existed in 1999 as coupes

They say OBD2 flash, but they don't have a dealer list. They have an online store system, but they don't say whether you get an OBD2 unit like a Shark Injector, or if they want you to ship your ECU to them to flash it.

Im leaning toward oetuning tune. I haven't called them yet. Maybe tomorrow. I need to delete my post 02's and turn off my SAP.. im hoping they can do that. I really just wanted the euro 2 re-flash but here in Indiana i can't find anyone who know's anything about doing that or anything about bmw's that don't want $1000 to look at your car. I just hate shipping my DME to Cali and waiting all that time to get it back and paying $400+ shipping for something i don't kow anyone has.
I have a 2002 325i, Step.
