    exhaust and induction kit is the norm too start with mate...then re map too make sure alls runnin tickety boo!!seemingly the pipercross velocity is quite superior too most induction kits due the postioning of the air hose etc...i had a couple off different indution kits on my car..simota and bcm both off which lost me power..i am now backwith the factory air box...depening on your funds..al-tuning do tuning packages upto superchargers..a stage 3 tuning package..induction kit..exhaust and live map cost around 2k...which on my 330ci was promised a hike from 231dhp too 275bhp..and 350lbs torque..you may find after yo buy your own exhaust..induction kit etc..then have them fitted..you wont be a kick in the arse off that

    Personally speaking here I would steer away from the induction kit as so many people do happen to find that on bmw's the standard air box with a uprated airfilter seem to do the job just right.
    The cat back exhaust is fine but you're not going to get much gains except a nicer sound. not sure how many cats ate on the 328i but it may be possible to ditch the first one of them, (please people correct me if I am wrong here).
    The remap will get you best gains for little money which I can offer you as a forum member for £200! (you come to me for that price).
    After that it is turbo or supercharger kit which will cost you loads of money.
    If I can help any further them please contact me on 07930410102.

    What realistic bhp gains can someone expect from a remap on a 'NON' turbo charged car ??? As a matter of interest ???

    there are many factors that determine the bhp gains on an engine which is why some N/A engines will only gain a few BHP while others will gain more. I try to give approx figures for all vehicles. So for a 328i I would expect to see around 9-12bhp gains realistically
