    also, if you want a deep roar, try a gruppe induction kit, had one on my 323 and i thought it sounded great, no boy racer sound just the "woahhhh woahhh" sound and no tinny rasping noise.

    The Yanks have a different understanding of Corsa than we do lol.

    A GruppeM rep or DaveF would deffinately do alot for audible pleasure. You'd keep the standard tick over rumble and quiet cruising but you'd certainly here it when nailing your foot to the floor.

    I love my GruppeM rep

    The very first steps to making a 330i sound good are to disconnect (& plug) the vacuum actuated flap on the exhaust tips. My touring had this, and I think it was to do with sound-deadening under hard acceleration. Disconnected, and sounds a bit throatier now.

    Secondly the K&N panel filter has made a difference to the noise.

    The biggest increase I had was when I swapped my duff exhaust cam position sensor for a new one - it sings loud & proud now it's running as it should.

    It doesn't sound like my mate's E93 M3, but it does sound excellent

    What do you think of the Remus PowerSound lads?

    It's a bit overpowering with the valves open but partially closed it sounds pretty imposing. Plus they do 2x76 or 4x74 tail pipes...nice!

    nice, how do you do this mate? Are there guides on here? I've heard messing with the valve here can be bad though.

    Dont know anything about the cam postion sensor too.
