    They did do the club sport models, not certain about the exact spec, externally IIRC, they had a different alloy wheel design and a bigger raised boot spoiler.

    Thanks for the welcome, the clubsport coupe was a limited run, which came with 18" splitrims, clubsport rear spoiler, clubsport sill plates, 20kg less sound deadening, stiffer suspension, heated leather or alacantra seats and estroil blue in colour, i think thats it, might be wrong tho.

    Just trying to find one, limit is 10k, and i would like sub 70k miles, harmon stereo, electric sunroof, heated black leather as having come from alacantra seats, they are lovely, but a pain to clean and keep nice, and sat nav/tv if possible but not a must as got a tomtom anyway.

    cheers for the replies, bought a 2003 facelift 330ci clubsport in estroil blue, fully loaded, satnav, tv (been bypassed to run while in motion), comp, 3 stage heated black leather, foldup mirrors, xenons, full bmw specialist SH, mot till next Sep, service in 1600 miles, so about summer time for me. Lovely car.

    What air filter is best, pipercross???, can i buy larger air intakes, or is there a mod to do, cant really afford big mods at the moment, so just the cheap easy ones for the time being.

    I would stay well away from pipercross filters...or any other open air filter for that matter.
    Unless all you want is the extra noise and a drop in performance...due to heatsoak of the filter from the engine bay heat. Search this forum as that topic has been discussed often. It is effective on smaller engined cars like 320 and 325 but the M3s hate it.

    If you get a good kit with a heatshield then it might be worth it

    I would say do the following

    Replace air filter with new panel filter (I would use the original BMW one as they are the best to be honest)

    A remap - contact someone like e-maps and get them to come out and do a remap on your car or take it to them.
    £350 well spent and the best gains you will get without going expensive mods rounte like turbo or supercharger etc

    Cheers mate, i did mean replacement panel filter, as most induction kits are pants, i thought the pipercross panel filter replacement would be better than standard??

    Dont really want to waste money on a remap yet, as want to do little things to it 1st like new milltek system, air intakes etc, it would just be a waste as i would need it remapped afterwards again.
