The only two I can comment on are Speedtuning and Powerchip. Without going into details, I had absolutely no promised results with Speedtuning and had pretty nice results with Powerchip. Others have had good results with Speedtuning, so I guess you take your chances in my opinion. I think a few people have positive things to say about InMotion as well.

The Thrill is back!

INMotion

FWIW: I had INMotion do mine about a year or so ago not too long after they were getting started in Oregon. I didn't dyno my car because I didn't care what the outcome was as long as I noticed a difference in performance and could measure a difference in mpg. After the upgrade on my 320 hard driving produced 26 mpg and easy driving and highway miles gave me 32 mpg. Considering the car only had about 6k miles on it that may improve as the engine loosens up. I didn't pay more than $250 US but I twisted Gunther's arm and he cut me some slack in hopes that he would get some exposure. I have about 16K on the car now but haven't checked the mileage lately and the weather sucks so it will be awhile before I check it again. The only other things I've done is put in a K&N filter and removed the baffles in the top of the airbox. I am happy with the improvement and would be even happier if I could remove the ADP. If you are coming from Japan with your shipment you may not have to wait as long than going to the east coast.
For the price, Speedtuning looks to be the best deal.

Inmotion was great, top speed limiter was gone which was my main objective, better shifting was also a plus, felt "nastier" when driving it....not that I would know anything about the top speed thing by trying it by the way

Mod list: Carlssons style front bumper, custom angel eye fogs, Halo headlights, #1 pads, Eibach springs, ECU tuning, chrome wheels, Illuminated door sills, in dash DVD and backup camera, complete audio system, AMG pedals, LED lights, Blk maple and chrome shift knob, blk maple center cover and door pulls, Zaino, Magnaflow exhaust LED tail lights, interior blue LEDs blue LED dash

I thought I would bump this thread. I had my ECU tuned by Speedtuning USA, and if anything, the car runs worse.

I just sent Oliver a note to get some feedback from him, but at this stage, I think I may have wasted $200. If I send the ECU back in and get better results, then I will be sure to post them.
