    You could try get in contact with alpina527 as he does BBTB's for the 328 so he may know more about this for you

    alpina527 does do a bbtb kit for the 318iS mate which is the way i would go. PM him mate as he is the guru
    The other options are;

    1. If your handy with engineering skills, the 3.0ltr M3 throttle bodies can be modified to fit the 318iS, unsure about the M44, but can definitely be done on the M42 by deleting the middle two throttle bodies and modifying the mountings. Not easy and not cheap.

    2. Fit a dbilas seperate throttle body kit..... VVVVV expensive though

    I would of thought the throttle bodies on a m42 and m44 would be same. What are the performance gains from a big bore throttle body

    i think something along the lines of 5bhp!!

    don be expecting much, i am hoping to get some for my IS when everything from my house is sorted,

    think it just feels a lot perkier and responsive,

    and its quite cheap 120 quid then send your old 1s back to alpina,

    theres induction kits out there 4 200 saying 10bhp and i seriously doubt they do, so its worth the money for the BBTB!!
