First topic to the board.

Just got myself a 2000 328i and curious to find out what modifications are good to add to the car that arent to costly.

(i.e. intake.. exhaust system... etc.)

Thanks everyone.

Hi, I'm still new here, and don't know what the others will say, but I just got a Dinan Intake and some Dinan performance software upgrades, and I'm really happy with them. Also, if you still have a warranty, my Dinan guy told me that it won't void the BMW warranty. Might be something worth thinking about if you have that warranty (which I don't).

Either way, I think with Dinan is North America's authorized (?) BMW aftermarket dealer. More costly, hopefully worth it. I wouldn't know, since I just have the Dinan.

Heres a list of what I had on my 2000 323i before I ripped the differential subframe loose from the chassis.

Shark Injector
ECIS Cold Air Intake
UUC Twin Silencer Exhaust
UUC EVOIII Short Shifter
3.46 Rear diff

Plus I had some head work done, but Im not going into that unless you want me to.

Good Luck!

We have a new turbocharger kit for the 3,28i.

Auto tranny equipped 3,28i makes 260 hp.

Manuel tranny equipped 3,28i makes 300 hp.

If you are interested p-mail me for the price. We have a very special introduction price. The price of the turbo kit is close to the sum of an exhaust system, software and cold air intake kit.

dinan is very expensive, very good and offers warrantly. if you have the dough, go with this.

jkloese car reads like a wish list of carefully selected, relatively inexpensive products with impeccable reputation, and superior performance.
i bow my head....

i think his subframe rip is not very likely to happen to you... used

i might add that stock brakes are very good, but not excellent. steel lines (tirerack, $80), powerslot rotors ($240 front, i think bav auto) and autocross pads (i picked hawk hps, $140 from tire rack) will TRANSFORM your driving.

I'm new here, too, and since everyone is talking about upgrades...what do you guys think about the shark injector? I've seen them advertised for around $350 for the E46. Is it worth it? Especially for a car still under warranty? In addition, where does the Shark Injector hook up to IN the car?
328iRockstar, for all it's worth, I recently put in a cold air intake. I asked around on other forums for advice, and was told that despite the cost, they all pretty much do the same thing. I got an AEM, with an aluminum intake, and am happy with it. Especially with the sound it makes. It accentuates the BMW's already sweet-sounding growl.
In addition, as for exhaust, (I haven't done it yet) Remus makes a good low cost Austrian-made exhaust system, which I'm looking into. You might want to check out bavauto.com has a few good ones. Good luck.

Dance, Monkey!!

Shark Injector is worth it, at least according to the majority in here. It saves your car's original programing just incase you have to bring it back to the dealer so that they won't realize that you did the change up. It is uploaded into your computer port, located in the spot where most other cars have a battery. Passanger's side by the hing for the hood. Big round thing.

If you get the shark injector, you really ought to get the intake as well, larger gains in the +10 are noticed really only in the pair.

328irockstar, please, just do a search in this forum, there's alot of information reguarding all aftermarket accessories including exhuasts (which btw, you can also check out UUC systems $$$$ and AA Tunning, whom, from an independent study, had the most gains AA Tunning.)

i thank all of you for replying back to my post.

ive actually looked into getting an AEM cold air intake. but i noticed that the most horsepower gain is at high RPM's from their dyno test.

thus far ive gotten the OEM clears for all around the car.

ive done my research on the shark injector and have taken it into consideration. as far as the exhaust is concerned im still unsure.

as far as dinan is concerned. i gotta save a whole lotta cash for that


but please more input is appreciated. thanks guys.
