Join the club of the sorrow 318i's. Word of advice sell the car before making any mods, add maybe 2000-3000 more dollars buy either a 328i or 325i. You will be much happier with those cars, cause 318's are quite slow, unless you have an engine swap planed for this car. BTW I have seen M5 engines put into 318's.

there right 318's are hard to get performance from take it from me i have a turbo charged ti and i am still looking for more horsepower. I am about to buy an apexi fuel map controller and have it professionally tuned hopefully that will help a lot. For your exhaust, you can spend over a 1,000.00 on a supersprint like me or uuc or whichever one you are looking at, but if you want a better horsepower to money ratio buy a 2 1/2" high flow cat converter, pick out a nice muffler and have your local shop bend you a custom exhaust all costing you about 300.00 and you will get more horsepower from it too. See after market exhaust will still have federal regulatoions like resonators and over sized cat converters which does not gain you any horsepower at all just nice sound. I had a supersprint put on my car and gained 2.3 horsepower, after my turbo install i had a 2 1/2" custom turbo back exhaust made with a high flow cat and a ac autotechnic muffler with 4" removable silencer and gained 9 horsepower all for 325.00 installed.

good work on stealing stuff from Maddox, but true. you did sound like an idiot with all caps, my hat goes off to you, in which case a bat flies out and bites your face thus paralizing you from typing on this forum for the next 4 days due to venom injection...
