    Help! Advise please, anyone?

    Hi guys, I'm new to my new ride, 118i.

    Wander if I can chip up my ride, what's the max. hp gain after chip up and what's the price range. Lastly, which workshop to go to?

    Thanks.

    i think change car easier...the money spent to squeeze 200bhp out of your ride can be better spent....haha

    Re: Advise please, anyone?

    one more thing.....the lesson learnt from most bros down here who spent alot on modding, don't expect to get back whatever u have spent modding.
    there are bros who spent up to 30k on modding being stuck with their cars or have to sell at the prevailing mkt price which can't cover the modding costs.
    presented to a layman buyer, the mods might not be of value so the car might not fetch a better resale value.
    like what Bro ACs323 suggested, u probably get more money back selling off a 325, ie buy that instead of spending on modding the 118.

    Sorry to borrow this thread: anyway I can chip my car up to 306hp? Any workshop and cost please, thanks.
    I wanna race with 335 at Kallang carpark F this Sunday.
