Tune for 2016 X4 28i?

Picking up 2016 X4 28i m sport.

Need recommendations for tunes.

Currently thinking about dinan sport tronics but unsure about piggy back tunes. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated and how do the 28i handle the extra power? Just came from a mk6 gti apr stage 1 tune great car and tune!

I have been using the JB1 tunebox. Used it in my previous F31 and now my 2016 F25. So 3 years usage and no problems. I did add an aftermarket non-plastic chargepipe on both vehicles.

Also BootMod3.

Did you notice a difference in power? Coming from a gti with apr stage 1. Maybe BMW just hides the speed well? Or it's just slow. 😬

You will notice a difference.

Comfort mode pulls like SPORT
SPORT pulls stronger too.

I've got bootmod3 stage 2 full bolt on, but before that ran stage one stock with just an upgraded charge pipe. Both were much much better than the race chip I used before that. Recommend BM3 highly

Hmm, I'm running a dinan piggyback but not feeling much of a difference with power.
