Do pedal boosters offer any benefits?

I was looking online and it seems plenty of companies offer throttle mapping tunes.

Contrary to probably most people here, i feel even sport+ is a bit too lazy.

Has anyone tried these on any car? I know this won't remove the turbo lag the car has but it can remove that sensation given enough throttle sensitivity. Of course at the expense of traction and throttle modulation

The pedal box only affects your tip-in, so if you feel Sport+ (no throttle delay) is already laggy then the box wouldn't really help a stock tune (maybe Sp and Eff modes respond a little faster).

I felt that an BM3 E30 tune removed most lag. My custom Paul tune has the fastest pedal response.

I think you need to recalibrate your foot. Sport+ is super sensitive.

Ask a custom tuner to just turn it into an on/off switch I guess

I feel like you'll struggle with bucking when trying to pull off from stoplights... or maybe you like accelerating like a madman all the time lol.

Pedal boosters make sense for non-M cars since there is a pedal sponginess factor built into the lower models which these units remove.

However when I tried using one (BMS) with my F80 M3, it felt like CRAP. Don't do it.

Bucking from stoplight already happens with sport+, that's what you're saying right?
