    Alright Folks,


    New to the forum and looking for some advice on tuning my 2004 330ci m sport possibly a remap and exhast system also are the pipercross or k&n induction kits worth bothering with or just a rip off any advice on what sort of power increases to expect prices etc would be superb.


    Cheers

    Not a tunning god be any means... lol

    But the answers you will get will probably be along the lines of...

    - Performance Panel Filter (non oiled one)
    - Cat Back Exhaust
    - Remap

    Without goin Forced Induction these are the best/worth while gains you will get
