Chip?

Anybody ever put a chip in their m3 in order to boost gas mileage? If so, what is your gas mileage now vs. the 20mpg on the hwy they are supposed to get.

My guess is that once the new 14's come out next summer, the e90 mkt value will plummet especially after a couple of years when the leases of 14's come back.

In addition to all the previous comments, wrong section of the forum to boot....

Anyways, here you go OP. I hear that while it doesn't improve gas mileage, it does improve how far you yourself can go inside of your car.

If you buy the M3, gas mileage is one of your least priorities.

If you worry about gas mileage, you should get a second car like a prius or chevy cruz.

Gimme some of those chips...

Start by shedding unnecessary weight from the car. First get rid of the fat wife, then your extra weight, and then other unnecessary things on the car like doors, front/rear bumpers, drivers seat, etc.
