hi, im new to this forum and i jus recently purchased a 00 323i. Im a struggling college student and was barely able to pay for the car.BORLA, REMUS, SUPERSPRINT, UUC, AA, DINAN, HAMANN, and stuff. after paying for my tints, tires, speeding ticket, lawyer fee my budget is pretty low. I use to be a import buff so when i saw the prices on these parts i was going to cry....which exhaust would give me the best hp/tq gains fer the cheapest price? what do you guys think of the Greddy v2 exhaust? intake next....

A problem you may run into someday, is say a water pump... that is a $1000 job on a bimmer. Basically any repairs you will pay a lot for, unless you get a warranty. If you dont have a warranty, i would suggest you go to your BMW dealer and drop $2200 on an extended warranty; in the long run, it may save you a lot of money, or it may save you none. It depends on your beast :P

Yea make a rainy day fund for fixing it :-) - hey if you throw the water pump repair into the 60K service its only 250 bucks for a grand total of $1250 bucks! That of course includes the 600 brake job and 400 "service" ghead
