Not trying to put you down or anything, but just remember that BMW engines aren't exactly meant for turbo. Unlike skyline/supra/1.8T which has engine components (heads,etc) that was meant for turbo. Just make sure that your PSI isn't too much and that its professionally done. Also try AA tuning. I heard they're not that bad.

Booyashaka!!!

BMW's are built and tuned to be N/A, when you start running a bunch more pressure though it, it's going to wear down quicker.

before you spend a shit load on that turbo go put on some exaust a chip and cold air intake . things like that first. If you love your car a turbo will surely make you hate it when the thing blows your motor. that shit will cost you $$$$$$$$$$

Not only will F/I wear out your motor faster, it's also quite expensive to make it run reliably. You'll run into a lot of problems if you're building a custom kit.

If you want forced indction, I'd say go with a Supercharger kit form aa. BMW's + Turbo usually dont work well (xception dado). BMW's are known for major turbo lag.
