    hey there after some advice and recommendations, all opinions welcome. few things...

    Exhaust - I want an exhaust system but from your experience, is it best to go for a cat back system? or is back box suffice? am after extra power and a nice deep raspy sound to show off that awesome straight six noise! =D are decats worth having? and any recommendations as where to go? good companies to use or is custom made the way forward?

    mapping - any good companies you could recommend? anything in particular i need to look out for and prices i should be expecting?

    thanks in advance

    Hi, I posted a video of my 330ci with the back box changed. Its definitely louder but not too stupid. A catback would be louder the fitter told me. The thread is "Proper HD footage of a 330ci" in this tuning section.

    I think I remember seeing a 323 break the 200bhp mark.

    PS. Many people recommend BW Chip Tune for mapping.

    Regards
    Ryan
