I was wondering what the best way to get my 95 525i to go faster is without NOS. I was thinking a Dinan trans chip engin chip and free flow exhaust. Does anyone have any other input?
What do ya mean by that Dan?
can be improved by honing their driving skills and learning the limits of their particular car. Depending upon what you want to do with the car (drag race, autocross, Solo I) will dictate the approach to take. A 525i will never compete against a 530, 535, or 540. Remember: There's no replacement for displacement!
That said, you can still drive a 525 quickly by learning how to use the available HP. Adding a chip and exhaust will gain 20-30 HP, reliably. Adding the tranny chip will help marginally, but an auto 525 is only going to go so fast.
So I second Dan's suggestion; learn how to use what you have to the fullest. If you want to go fast, find an E30 or E36 M3. If you want to go a little slower than that, take a driving school in the 525i, and you will be greatly rewarded.
I'm trying to talk the wife into that now, only I want her to participate as well.
