    Right guys..

    Picking up a Autovogue E92 325i next week..

    I was hoping to get a 335i but that fell through due to waste gate rattle..

    SO im hoping to extract abit more noise and power from the 325 as I love the look of the car but dont want to get bored with it..

    Im coming from a 630hp Evo 8 MR RS.only selling as with our 2nd little one on the way its just not practical ans with 40k in it I carnt afford to keep it and get ssomething else nice.

    So question is where can I get mods from for the 325 and what mods do you guys recommend google search isnt helping atall as its all American sites :(

    Being the Autovogue it already has a exhaust cat back I think... and lowering springs..

    Ideally im looking at...

    Map
    Intake
    Down pipes injectors?? Cams?? Might be miles off with some of these but normally they seem to be the correct starting place..

    Also whats sort of gains can be seen from the above?


    Thanks Paul

    I know u said your budget was 10.5k i just done a quick browse and theres loads of good ones under that if you consider jus getting a SE model and paying later to fit your own autovogue kit ive also noticed the e90 range is abit confusing badged 325 but are actually 3.0 litre anyway just some have turbo's,some have none and others have twin turbo i think

    325 badged...3.0L 218bhp 7.0s (2005-2007)
    325 badged...3.0L 218bhp 6.6s (2006+)

    330 badged...3.0L 258bhp 6.3
    330 badged...3.0L 272bhp 6.1 (turbo)

    335 badged...3.0L 306bhp 5.5s (twin turbo)

    Diesels

    330d...231bhp 6.7s
    335d...286bhp 5.9s

    All those are within your budget some are even m-sports if u like the autovogue styling what do u think of this styling on this wheels could do with a refurb but car looks decent and under budget

    difficult to get much power without spending a lot I would pm jason at bwchiptune for some informed advice. Other than that every BMW I have owned has benefitted hugely from uprated arb's they roll way too much as standard.

    Id spend nothing on tunning unless you really want it done the slowest 325 is 7.0s 0-60 that isnt slow by now means but you might get the odd few lighter cars like audi a3 2.0 tdi for example suprise u and stay with u for pace

    7.0s is quick 5.5s is stupid quick...lol

    Seeing his previous car I'm guessing he would want stupid quick, i know id much rather 5.5s I'd be pissed if an audi a3 kept up with me in one of those bmw's

    I got absolutely embarassed by a 335d giving me a 4 car gap start my cars not slow but it felt like i was in a 1.2 corsa when he went past me i came home later that night and started flicking through 335i/335d adverts as you do

    Those 2011 and newer audi A3 2.0 tdi are quick over 200bhp with tunning

    130/135,335,535/540,645/650 all decent performers.

    I know there's nothing worse than when someone leaves you standing it really knocks the love you have for your car but I just think to myself my time will come when that's me leaving someone in a ball of smoke

    if your saying the a3 2.0 litres are quick can't you get a 3.2 litre Quattro a3 and then the s3 which is even quicker specially when people get the stage 1 or 2 remap on them they must be rediculous of the line? Also it's funny because I haven't seen one of those auto vogues before in person or atleast I haven't noticed one but since I looked at this thread this morning I saw one near my house in black and they are so so smart they look like a scary car to see in your mirror flying up your arse

    Cracking looking cars aint they I pick mine up monday

    Looking into things induction short shifter and map seems to be about the best bet not huge gains but should make for a very nice all rounder
