BMW 320i (2008) 170HP to 220HP+...how?

Hi fellow BMW lovers,

I've a european (dutch) BMW 320i HE model, recently bought 2008 june model.
Reason I didn't buy a 325i or better is because I didn't want to drag attention from other fellow consultants or clients.

Now, I want to modify my car into something way quicker.
170Hp it just isn't enough to carry along that heavy load of weight of the car.

What can I do? I heard, not read, something about an intercooler, turbo, exhaust and chiptuning.
All these combined could add about 70HP and a huge increase in TQ.
What do you guys think?

Cheers.

Why didnt you just buy a 325i or 335i but opt for the badge removing?

That way, unless they know which model has which exhaust pipes then they wouldnt know.

I personally would never 'downgrade' my car becasue I was concerned about what others would think.

Also. I dont think that increase is remotely possible.....someone correct me if im wrong.

I agree... it's very weird to hear that someone would actually choose a different car over the one they want just for the sake of some other people...

In the other hand... that kinda increase is possible... but you'd end paying a lot of money... instead if you would opt for the 325i or 330i, you wouldn't have too...

I had been drive 320i but now I've already swap to the 330.

It's totally fun, I love to drive my car ev everyday...

Anyway, I had done may MOD for my old 320 but the only things that I can get is LOOK and SOUND...

Intake, Exhaust, Chip, etc... = Waste of money (ALL BULLSHIT)

Thanks guys for your response.

The fuel prices in, especially holland, are very high. We pay around EUR 1.60 for a liter, you could compare that with about 9,5 USD per gallon.
So opting for a 330i isn't always that easy...

I think I'll just drive this car for a bit and then sell it for a 325D

Cheers guys.
