Could anyone give me an idea if i need an upgraded intercooler or not? I have a 14 228i tuned to bm3 stage 1, but really interested in the stage 2 and that is where it says i need an upgraded intercooler, does it really matters?

It's always recommended because increased boost = higher IAT's and an intercooler will help keep that down, especially if you do many pulls and/or live in a hot place. I'm stage 2 with a $200 G Plus intercooler from Amazon and it does the job well, drops my IAT's from 140 to 100 in the hot Florida summer

Upgrading the intercooler is a must on tuned cars. Since you are going with a stage 2, i recommend VRSF 6.5" competition, Wagner EVO II or CSF
