    Having recently aquired a 2001 E46 320i I find myself wanting more power/speed etc... (who doesn't hey??)

    How effective would putting an induction kit (new chrome air-filter thing) and having the engine remapped??

    Are there things I should look out for when doing this and how has tuning affected your Bimmer??

    Many thanks

    hi there, Firstly stay away from any cheap chrome type induction kits. Its worth paying more for a decent kit (no need to go over board though) and make sure that the filter that you use is NOT the type that you have to oil.
    In regards to remapping, we can get some reasonable gains from these, nothing that will set the wheels on fire though as its a naturally aspirated engine.
    Give me a call if you like on 07930410102 and I'll help you out.
