3 series (sorry)

2.4 in ti spec, end of

I had a 1.9 in gt guise. Great car, went to test 159s and the 1.9 just felt slow in comparison, so went out in 2.4. Different league. Since had mine mapped to 265. Now it's a great car and can mix it with most and, in the right gear & road, cause some serious surprises in the elite end of motoring

Induction mods on the 2.4 have been discussed at length in the "Tuning and Upgrades" Section and the general consensus is a K&N filter in the standard box is the best option.

Induction kits will ultimately reduce the power due to heat soak issues, rather then improve it, although they may sound nicer.

May take that route then. At least I'd never have to buy another air filter with K&N 1m mile warrenty. Just a quick clean now and then.
