Wow, you have done a lot of work to your car.
Looks great but must have cost a fortune.

those mods are half ok half random... the length of your mod list doesn't mean how good your mods are

I am seeing a few holes, such as no real performance gain... your handling isn't as good as an M3s yet, it's still an auto, no idea what gains can be expected from the BMW headers (does that mean M3 also?), I would recommend getting some better brake pads to make use of your rotors, for styling I can't see any distinguishable differance in the pic that you posted from several other members cars. It's a good start, but in no way should that be finished yet.

Sorry, I don't see enough there to put 220 down at the wheels, not sure there is enough there to put 220 @ the flywheel.

Your car does look great. Best of luck with it

More pictures.. looks nice... now finish what someone else did.. and do it the right way with good parts..

Good start... surf the forum for some of the big mods that are not all that exspensive but put out a lot more than what your previous owner did..

Good Luck,

Les

I agree with NeverLeaned, there's no way you're getting 220 to the wheels with and automatic 325 with those mods. Nice car though. Hey does the M3 oil cap make it go faster?

Sorry... My mistake.. the owner says he dyno'd it at 210 to the wheels before he sold it to me... I don't know if this is legit data because he didn't show me any papers or anything from the dyno run.. so I don't know.. I'm going to ask him again..

i agree. there is much more you can do to this car, but it is a very good start. I don't think the headers are doing much if you still have your CATS in. to get more out of them get some straight pipes or a track pipe.
