    I really do struggle to find anything for tuning these lumps!

    Lots on cosmetcs, handling but nothing for grunt bar £5k and upwards to super/turbo charge.

    What about air intake? are these near optimum as standard?
    Would be nice if I could "free the engine up" with better fueling/airing potential - uprated injectors?

    Cams seem pointless unless your charging your car.

    remaps offer 10%

    exhaust, believe the standards are pretty free flowing as standard!?

    Am I missing something?

    I'd love to get my car to 250 region without a turbo/charger (expensive to fit, expesnive when go wrong)

    it's 60BHP away and could maybe make 20-30 of that if I am lucky.

    Any idea's?!

    I cant help too much but i would of thought a re-map on a N/A 328i would be a absolute max of 10% power increase. I think it would probably be less than 10% increase but would feel more responsive. Im sure some of the forum tuning guys will be along soon with a better idea on re-map figures.

    From what i understand there isnt much gains to have without going down the supercharger/turbo road.

    problem is, yours is an auto!, so will feel a bit slower as is!, my mod is a 2.8 engine swap! yours is a charger, or car change!
