I have decided that the first things I want to do to my baby are Intake and exhaust.
I am not sure which intake to get and I could really use some suggestions....
I love this exhaust I saw on a M3 four door the other day, It's tail pipes shot up at the end. I have seen them before but I have no clue what its called and if it is any good....
I have notice BMWs have a couple different brands that make products for them, but saddly I am unfamiliar with alot of them... ghead
Can anyone out there tell me which ones I will get good quality product from, and where and how to find it?

Supersprint, Remus, Dinan, are all good name brands. I think all of them have the DTM tips like you've described. All of them are pretty expensive though. Good luck with the mods.

i'm gonna suggest a cheap intake; unless you have no problem spending $300 for something that sounds good just get something off e-bay. I got one for 45$ shipped and it sounds bad-ass

yeah kevin is right

The exhaust tips you described are called DTM tips.

Most noticeably, remus makes a good set.

exhausts are expensive, and i hope you wont skimp out and get a universal. if you would prefer, mayb just buy tips and weld them on after you cut off the stock tips.

also what car and year do u have?

CHIP?

There is not chip for obdII which you have (96+). You will have to shark it, which I have heard isn't really worth it.

Yeah, I posted in one of the other threads you started camp. I have basically the same engine you have, and that's why i made some suggestions to you before. Your car is equiped with a OBDII induction system which prevents you from chipping it. It also is much more restrictive with regards to performance. That's why I recomended this upgrade [HERE]. This is (like I stated before) the single best upgrade for your car. It will give the most real world performance gains without any MAJOR modifications.

The best suppliers of aftermarket upgrades are: bmpd.com bavauto.com hmsmotorsport.com

As for exhaust, my Borla DTM Stainless exhaust is sweet sweet music. I was a little embarased at first, but I have had so many people tell me it sounds awesome, i guess they can't be wrong! Doesn't look too bad either!

Intake - Just drop a performance air filter in your stock air box.

Exhaust - I'm a HUGE fan of remus. Check out their system for your car. It looks perfect! Fits GREAT! Sounds amazing! I plan on purchasing their system this summer. Goodluck!

You can get a performance chip for OBDII fitted cars.Just check www.dastek.co.za.
My car (1998 Bmw 328i Individual) went from 142kw to 163kw after the chip.Also went from 280nm of torque to 296Nm.

Only problem is not sure if these chips are sold overseas.

I can't get too in depth, because zionsville autosport did the work not me. But the way it was explained to me was as follows....

The OBDII induction system was added to the 2.8L engine as a means of controlling emissions and insurance premiums. The negative byproduct however, is an induction and ecu that is very restrictive and "non-modable". By converting the OBDII back to an OBDI system, you are left with the best of both worlds. You get the larger displacement (much more torque than the 2.5L) with the unrestrictive induction system. This will give you a considerable increase in hp and torque, while adding the ability to remap the software and optimize things further. Like i said, its not cheap, but if you want a VERY cost effective mod (unlike a CAI), this is the way to go

BTW, I plan on contacting Mr. Jason Lile (the gentleman at zionsville) to get more info on what software tweeking I can make, as I have grown into the current set up and want to take the nex step...hehehehe

It's a small piece of horizontal thin wobbely plastic. Its about half a foot tall and mounted at an angle so it appears even smaller. Not a big deal at all. 60$ for a new one at a bodyshop.
