longevity question with tune

was thinking about a tune for the grey area, yeah i named my car, guess what color? anyway, was wondering how this could affect the longevity of this engine. own the car and plan on holding on to it for a while and have heard nothing but good things about tuning the ride, was going to go with powerchip or ess. any horror stories or things i should be concerned with as i go forward. planning on tracking the car so it will be put through a workout now and again, but also drive it daily... any input would be greatly appreciative...

Whoa now, don't scare him off. Modding is a great thing and a lot of fun. You have to take into account that the above owner of that M3 does not live in the United States so things are a bit different there. Yes I agree that there are downsides to modding but the majority of people have not have any problems with tunes specifically.

OP, reasearch, research, research. There are many tunes out there and you will find out that some are not as good as others. Based on theinformation you learn, make a decision then.

Personally, I'd go with Powerchip, but I don't want a tune yet.
