Chiptuning CX-3 150bhp 2.0 petrol - is it worth it?

I was looking at tuning my car already when I got it, unfortunately there was hardly any options. I've seen there's options for the 2.0 150bhp Skyactive G basically removing the electronic limit (150->165bhp) and tuning it to 180bhp, and moving it from 205nm to 220nm. That increase doesn't seem like a lot to me, and I'm wondering if it's worth it. There could be some fuel economy reasons as well I guess, but I'm not sure if it'll actually be better (can hardly get any worse in the CX3 though).

Has anyone done this, is the driving experience vastly different?

Mine is tuned from 120hp to 180hp, the difference is noticeable (sometimes huge).
Feel free to ask for more information
