Alright Folks,


New to the forum and looking for some advice on tuning my 2004 330ci m sport possibly a remap and exhast system also are the pipercross or k&n induction kits worth bothering with or just a rip off any advice on what sort of power increases to expect prices etc would be superb.


Cheers


Gaz

Not a tunning god be any means... lol

But the answers you will get will probably be along the lines of...

- Performance Panel Filter (non oiled one)
- Cat Back Exhaust
- Remap

Without goin Forced Induction these are the best/worth while gains you will get :thumbsup
