are the superspring headers the best headers for the 2002 330Ci? are there any better ones and are they worth the $1200 price?

Why do you want headers? Youre not really going to gain any power with them.

yeah, im pretty sure you gain power from the headers, NOt the exhuast, so unless theres a huge discrepency, then you should go with supersprint, they seem to be the most reliable, plus the have shileding against noise...or look for something with a good warranty

I agree with M42technic, you're not going to gain much power.

It's not like BMW left a lot of power behind by dumping the exhaust into a crappy straight log of an exhaust header (like Ford did on my '97 Ranger). The stock BMW header is pretty good.

Let us know, though. It would be REALLY interesting if you were to spend an extra $150 to dyno the car before and after. I'm doubtful you'll wring anything more out of it.
