    Hey Guys im new to this forum and I have just bought a 2002 318ti e46.

    To be honest with you I hardly know much about the compacts and I would just like some advice.

    I heard that these motors are not really easy to get more performance out of them. Is this true and if not what can be done that is worth while in increasing the power.

    Thanks

    welcome to the forum
    the best way to get more bhp is a engine swap as you cant get much gains out of the 4 pots, but if you just want it to be a bit quicker lighten the car

    very little you can do to get a worthwhile performance increase unfortunately..

    in general with 4 pot N/A engines its going to be very expensive for minimal gains..

    as diponio says shedding weight is always a good start.. removing back seats if they aren't need for example..

    also the usual things like full SS exhaust system, ram air induction kit with cold air feed then a re-map to get the most out of the upgrades..

    but all that together your talking probably £800 plus for about 15-20BHP maximum.. not really worth it.. if you want proper increases then drop a 2.5 litre 6 pot in from the 325ti..
