Want more power, but...

Wife right now doesnt want me doing anything to the car because I just got it. I was thinking about a BM3, but a BMS stage 1 has come up for 150usd in my area, is it worth doing for the time being?

What ever you do have someone with experience install it. If you botch the install then your wife will be right.

Right about what? I've tuned cars for 20 years. I'll be ok, even if I dont know what I'm doing, I'll figure it out.

Ended up getting stage 1 for 130usd. Super cheap power and I'm very satisfied with the throttle response that it gives, well worth it.

I will upgrade later, but for now, its alot better than stock.
