I have a stock '00 328ci. I was wondering what the best way was to get more HP. Turbo?, Chip?, Exhaust?' I plan on adding an open element filter soon, but I want some real HP increases. I traded a vette for the BMW and I am having some power withdrawl!!!

If you want real power increases then I would go with a turbo

just an exhaust or just a chip, wont give you a whole lot more power.. a combo of an exhaust, cai, and chip will give you a little more pep, but if you want real power you have to get a turbo or supercharger

I expected to have to get a turbo... is there a better brand for BMW's than another? In response to the comment " should have gotten an M3". Used M3's tend to be driven the way they were ment to be. Also, insurance is about 60% higher for me at least.

It had high miles and it was "used and abused!". I wanted something a little more user friendly, comfortable, and sporty. I think I found it!

Over-priced? Tell me where else you can find a complete demon eye kit for $90, or a complete set of rims for $599... yeesh, some people.

Anyways, my car was the first Production model VFEngineering supercharger
My girl FLIES now!
and yes, we will be carrying them in the near future - but have no fear, the blower will be between 4500 and 5500 depending on your year and model.
