Has anyone installed a DTUK performance chip on their F10 ?
Been looking at one for £395 and it says it takes the standard 520d from 184bhp up to 225bhp. Would these chips potentially cause any problems or nil the warranty on some parts of the vehicle ?
Cheers for any responses.

I seem to recall reading somewhere that the current ECUs detect and flag any unofficial mods, which are easily detected by the dealer's diagnostics and reported to BMW, thereby affecting your warranty.
There are insurance implications as well.
