    It also has the advantage that when your car disintegrates into a pile of cogs and bolts (which is inevitable!) you can transfer the system onto your next chariot.

    Plus when you get pulled over by the cops and nicked! you can crack the bottle and take a whiff and all off a sudden everthing does not seem so bad!! In fact its F****n* Hilarious

    hahah this ppost tickled me.

    Nitrous is good but it costs lots - cos you end up burning though loads of it.

    I'm in the same boat, I have a 318ci and posted the same thing and really if you think about all the money you are going to spend on getting it a little faster you would be better spending on exterior and interior mods. I have a friend who has the same car as me and he went and got a remap done on his for 270 and all it done was take flat spots away !!
    If you really want something faster consider an engine swap

    12000K HIDs, 8000K angel eyes, clear side indicators, M3 CSL replicas, more to come

    Personally, if I was you, I would just put the money I'm looking to blow on mods away, drive your 318 for a year, maybe even 2, then go back to the insurance company with more NCB, being an older driver, (think 21 is a threshold??) put your Mrs/Mum on the policy and ask about a BMW with a bigger engine.

    Sell car, add money to what you saved by NOT squeezing 15bhp out of it, and making it look faster than it is, go buy yourself a lovely 320 or 330 or something, a nice Sport model.

    Just my 2p is all.


    Oh and as far as non-declaring stuff goes, at your age, AVOID it. You do not want to live the rest of your life with huge insurance costs because of uninsured driving charges and insurance fraud on your records.

    Give it a few years and you'll be paying less than £1000 a year for a nice big, fast motor.

    (I should have taken some of this advice when i was 19 TBF. lol)

    I completely agree with Foolishbean69, if you don't state the full facts to your insurance company, then you are basically driving with-out it & in this day & age - they're looking for any excuse not to pay out & shaft you for something as simple as not declaring an air-filter or alloy wheels.
    One way I have successfully got around huge premiums; is to take out a policy on a completely standard car & then add the modifications to the policy afterwards.
    Most of the insurance company staff just want to get you off the phone & usually just hit the premium with an extra 'administration charge' to add the mods.
    This technique worked great for me as I'm turbocharging my 328i coupe - an additional 150bhp(ish) only cost me an extra £22.73!!!!!!! - but then again, I'm 25 with 5 years no claims.
    I'm not actively suggesting people try this - it's still a risk if you're driving any vehicle with un-declared mods.
