I will tell you something most will tell you... any topic you want to learn about... use the search feature... its a great thing.. also .. take a step through the FAQ section... it has most of everything about these cars.. then when you still cant figure something out... buy a manual.. Bentely has a good one for your car... then if that doesnt help.. post your question on the forum...

Good Luck,

Les

you should start out with some performance software, Jim Conforti preferably (ac schnitzer is good too).
then move on to an intake and exhaust system,

I hate it break it to ya buddy, but it looks like you bought the wrong kinda car. Even on the inline 6 motors, if you are looking to spend under $500 you'll get roughly 5-10hp in total.

Here, let me give a good example. This is for an e36 OBDII

Intake Manifold = $1,000
Shrick Camshafts = $1400
New chip to accomodate both = $350
Installation of cams = $400 (at the least)

Total Price - $3150 (but probably more)
Total hp gain - 35-40
$ per HP = 3150/35-40 = $90-$78

Welcome to the world of BMW's my friend!

Hopefully your town is really, really small. I would sell that car and wait til I had some money to buy a real car. I drove a 93 Mitsubishi Mirage even after I got my first real job after graduating college for a while to gather enouch money to get a car I could maintain and fix up little by little. I'm not hating on your car. I believe in the power of 4-cylinder engines. But I am pretty sure you want power and speed. Let me put it like this: there is only so much you can get out of your nice little hatchback.

Good luck. Hold on to the 318 if you can afford the maintenance. Otherwise, get a Honda or something (just in the meantime, while you figure out how to get youyr hands on some cash).
