hiya,

I was planning to invest on the AA superchager, but here in Hong Kong, I do not think any of those is running on the road, which makes mine the first if it's possible. If I have a mechanic friend, could we DIY ?

The weather here is ranging from 3C-37C throughout the year, humid in the summer and dry in the winter. Will that affect the supercharger's performance?

Also my car is a 03 325ci (face lifted) , anyone with a 325 force induction running? what's the feeling of that and could you even come close with a stock M3 ?

Will FI significantly reduce the life of the car?

Thanks.!!

Dont use any supercharger on your BMW, if you want to spent money and like to ride fast, get an 2000 or 2001 M3 or M5.

Here's a link to a 325ci for sale w/ a super charger, it talks about times (sais it is AS fast as a m3) and power (312hp crank):

Supercharged 325ci

Personally I would go with an m3 as well. Not only will a SC reduce your cars life, but unless you know a lot about engines and SCs you could be up for some maintenence/tuning nightmares - plus there's your warranty to worry about if you have one.

Thanks Pal,
you know guys, in Hong Kong, buying a M3 is something like $ 98000 US Brand New, which really makes owning one a remote dream to many of us, my 04 325ci already costs $55000 US.

That's why I came up with this SC idea, just to fulfill my dream. LOL anyway, I think now my dream will become remote again....

thanks though!

yeh, here in australia, imported cars are just as expensive, probably more!
M3's go for about USD120,000, and 330Ci for about USD85,000.
its a bit of a bitch. with that sort of money, in america, u could probably pick up a nice porsche 911

Why not do Dinnan? They don't void warranty or if it does they cover voided areas.

dinan SC will cost about 11 grand to buy and ship. add that to the cost of your car now, and you could go for the M3 and get ths tock performance that you wanted. no FI involved.
