    Hi guys,

    this is my first post on here, i have read loadsa interesting stuff and its made me want to make my bimmer go faster!

    I bought my 2000 BMW E46 328Ci about a month ago and already it doesn't feel as fast as when i first got it.

    I've got about £1000 to spend and was thinking of:

    CAI
    ECU Remap
    Exhaust system

    but i know jack sh!t about tuning cars as this is my first one, any help in choosing which CAI and Exhaust to go for would be greatly appreciated.

    also if anyone know a good place to get the ECU remapped, i live in Portsmouth so somewhere near would be cool. I've done quite a bit of google-ing myself but would like to hear from the people in the know.

    Thank in advance

    St0F

    I have sent you a PM in regards to your remap. There are plenty of options on the exhaust front and I would personally go for Eisenmann. Not sure about what CAI kit is available for your car but you can google just like I can to find out, I think K&N may make a kit or try BMC which are good quality but not sure if they make a specific kit for your car. You may have to do a little DIY with it.
