    Just bought a 328ci was wondering what mods would give good gains for a resonable price?

    induction kit?
    Remap?
    Manifold?
    etc..


    Cheers!

    Biggest 'bang for your buck' will be a remap - should make it pull nice and smooth too

    Induction Kit - personally I would just replace the stock air filter with a Panel replacement, never really seen the massive need to spend hundreds on an induction kit.

    A really nice exhaust system will go well, maybe a sports-CAT or de-CAT and CAT-back system.

    How much are you really looking to spend on your car?

    Yeah I would say the remap with an uprated air filter.

    Then exhaust but that could set you back something like £1000 plus for a good full system!

    ask mike in the motech forum a bit lower than this one
    he might be able to sort you a good price
