Exclamation Need help modding 328i

I cant find any sites for modding the E90 328i.

Like a intake, exhaust, anything making the car get some hp gains.

All i've been finding is exterior and some interior mods.

Any suggestions please?

Brah you just gotta sift your way through the many pages of this forum, theres plenty of information on modding 328i's. As far as modding, that idea is based on personal preference, with most individuals getting nothing more than wheels, intake, and exhaust most people are pretty content with the basics. goodluck

Jlevi's pricing is very reasonable, and they have pretty decent customer service

i am guessing your a highschool/early college student wanting to mod "your" car?

If this is from your pocket, you should start saving up, as mods for e90's (any sedans from 06 to present is called E90's) will be pretty expensive.

But if money is not an issue, Jleviw will be the best place to find aftermarket parts both costmetic and performace wise..

on the top right corner is the search button.. it is very helpful and you will most likely find at least a dozen guides on modding your E90 sedan.

welcome to the forums. please use the search functions before asking, or you will probaly just get flamed.

nahh i just want to put an extra kick into my car, i dont really want to "tune" it up much since it's a lease, and it is my car, i'm paying for it...

Yeah i know i've been searching for a while now, no performance mods for the 08 but a drop in filter which i dont think does much..

i suggest you buy either a gruppe m- or simota intake. a drop in filter will do nothing to sound/performace.

kyle369, there is currently nothing for the N52 engine out right now that will give you significant HP gain. All the stuff you've listed probably only gives 3-8 hp each and they also aren't additive. I was like you when I found the car too, but sorry man, there's no way for us Non Turbos to get much extra power

you want horsepower get...
exhaust
intake
racing clutch
lightweight flywheel
port the intake manifold
port the trottle body
up the injectors
get a performance chip
happy tuning...
lol i was just kidding. the best thing since it is a lease just get an intake and a performance chip if you can afford it. that is the easiest and best thing for a lease vehicle cuz they both come off quick and easy
