I've heard good things about that.
l will check out AA. Just trying to get all the info I can before I start tearing into my car and modding.

335 modded > m3

AA = Active Autowerke, it's a brand. Also to the people looking to do some performance modifications to their 328 I have nothing against it but in my opinion just keep it all stock, but if you insist then I suggest these.

1. AA Tune, Eurocharge Tune, or BMS PBX
2. BMW Performance Intake or Simota CF Intake V2 or Insert Other Brands Here
3. BMW Performance Exhaust or AA Exhaust or Insert Other Brands Here

Choose what fits your budget, but anything else other than what I suggested will require deep pockets.

Active Autowerke, aftermarket BMW tuner company. What they are refering to is the AA tune, for your ECU. Boosts HP and torque, also better mpg and etc. There is a whole thread on it found here:

1. Inserted fob into key slot.
2. Pressed Start Engine button
3. Depressed gas pedal all the way down for about 30 seconds (listened for the adjustments, but never heard them).
4. Released gas pedal.
5. Waited another 30 seconds.
6. Started the car.

No difference.
This is pure BS to let you know. This procedure activates the coolant purge cycle to work out the air in the cooling system. I've done this so many times and my brain said it works but the reality is, it doesn't Placebo effect...

You can do a free mod, just use it responsibly... Rear fog lights

Carbon fiber trim interior, I did it, looks a thousand times better.

Stay away from BMS Power Box, it is garbage IMO... I have it, never did a AA Tune, no time really and found I didn't really need it.

Get some LED's for the angel eyes, brighten them puppies up.

Maybe do the airbox mod? I did and dropped an AFE air filter (dry element)
Not much of a difference but it breathes better
