    For which car ? M3 ? if M3 I'd say no to the all, you wont beat the manifold it has, the K&N is chavy but the remap ok at a stretch, though they are quick enough without messing them up.

    You could do what Chas wanted to do and super charge a M3

    before anyone else jumps in and savages you. there is a thread running on K&N cone filters (and others like Dave F and the like). It gets heated very quickly when people get onto the filters, for, against and not bothered alike all end up in a shouting match. probably best if we pretend you didnt ask that bit and just let others deal with the 2 remaining questions.

    to coin a star wars phrase 'these are not the droids you want'

    do a search for cone filters, here are 2 to start you off.

    1991 E30 320i - k & n airfilter gains???

    http://www.bimmerforums.co.uk/forum/...2-what-t77242/

    now move along the bus please to the other 2 questions

    I was a minute too slow and look what happened, merrygoround fired up and spinning with no way to stop it now
    I tried, I really did.

    1) Polishing it.
    2) Driving it.





    Why mess with perfection (other than crappy bushes!)?

    TBH I agree with the posts above. They are awsome machines as standard. Engine wise there is not a lot you can do. To get any more power is £££££ and you need to know what you are doing. Suspension wise Eibach springs are supposed to be a lot better than the standard springs. Mind you I have driven Plumb's E46 M3 and TBH I couldnt fault the suspension, brakes and the performance. If I had the cash I would trade in my Evo for one....

    M3 Cutters say the Evolve remap on the E46 makes the car much better. Not got a E46 M3 so cannot comment but heard nothing but good things about Evolve and Sal.
    K & N are rubbish, do not bother. Stories going around that it has reduced power in most cases and cause running issues.
    Never heard of anyone changing the manifold.
