I was wondering if anyone with a 530i 5spd has installed a performance chip. What perks are there after the install and which chip gives the best performance

: It seems to feel a more constant increase in power throughout the RPM band. Is it worth it? After you chip it, you WILL have to run Premium gas all the time. Which is a good thing if you still have the nikasil engine, Amoco Premium has one if not the lowest sulfur content.
