I hope that you're joking. This sounds almost as good as the infamous "tornado". Don't waste your money kid (or should I say your parents money).

The product seems legit. However it is designed for FI cars running high boost. From what I understand it cools the intake charge of the compressed air, sort of like a liquid intercooler. NX makes a setup called the N-tercooler which mounts a spray bar on the intercooler and fires small shots of nitrous that does the same thing as this unit. Some companies also do it with C02. Unless this salesman has a boosted 330ci then he is full of it.

Kind of reminds me of water injection. Mostly for 1/4 mile cars or old airplanes though.

Write this one off as a life lesson... Never trust a salesman.

Congrats on the fine car. You've already got too much hp for a high-schooler. Recognize how lucky you are and enjoy your car.

If you want more power. Okay fine. Power is not everything, for one you are pretty damn lucky mommy and daddy got you a nice ass new car. If you wanted power you should have bought a used E46 M3 for around the same price as fully loaded 330Xi. I had this same problem when I was purchasing my 330i. I was either going to get an e46 M3 which they had on the lot. Alpine with Imola red interior, 19's and all. Yes more power of course. I always wanted to own an e46 M3. Esp when I had my E46 330Ci (Loved that damn thing) I also never owned a 4 door except for a Galant as my first car. From then on out I only owned 2 doors. It was a big step going into a 4 door. I had the E90 and E46 pulled up next to each other. And The M3 is just a beauty but the E90 is just stunning. Back when I bought my car it was also the Hott new thing. Other than my moms 330xi she bought on the same day i bought my car. No one really had an E90. But now around here its like honda civics i see them everywhere. 255 HP is enough for your age, esp. your first car. I know plenty of people who fucked up their first car. I bought my girl a new MINI S Auto back in Aug. I was Scared to death she was going to do something to it. Well she did. Theres a few scratches. Someone keyed her car. She backed up into some indian lady and messed up the bumper, and the car is just a POS now with all the problems in the world. Now shes stepping into a new car now. Bought her a 325i Alpine White, Sport Pack, Xenons, Heated seats. I was going to get her a 330i, but i think its just too much power for a new drive. Esp. rear wheel drive also it has DSC DTC yes, but that doesnt mean a BMW can conquer the laws of physics. You have AWD thats a slight advantage. Drove my moms 330xi and that thing is glued to the road. But still i see many people crashing AWD STi's and Evos and what not. You are a new driver, got a new car which you should be greatful, and now you want more power. To what be stupid with it? You are looking at these $300 mods or whatever, you do something to a $40K+ car your going to hurt really bad, when warranty doesnt cover it. Get something with more power after you get confortable with the road and learn how to drive. Take some driving schools and get smart on the road. Every new driver I meet thinks they are kings of the road and nothing can happen to them. Then I see their cars in a salvage yard because they drove the piss out a a 215 HP lexus IS and wrapped it around a tree. And thats only 215 HP. I mean if your going to crash you can total a 90HP car or what ever. Move into faster cars progressively. Go step into a Porsche Turbo and try to drive it. Youll see what I mean. I drove a Turbo, and I am a good driver, and Its hard, everything is so fast you dont know what to do next with all that power. I guess what I am trying to say is, like a few people said. Enjoy your new car, learn to drive it, be safe. We dont need to see you posting pictures of how you flipped your car off a cliff because you were going 100 MPH around a jug handle.
BTW> Is your car stick or auto?

Artz, when Isaw your post I thought "God! Who is supposed to read all this?!", but your point is well put. Although I own a car with almost half the HP than lilpakiplaya034, I have anough power too! That's because even a 320 has enough power to get off balanced in a turn, and a turn is what's all about eeh? I'm considered a good driver, but not too sporty (I'm working on it), my driver instructor was a race driver and he always told me "The car has higher limits than your fear, your mind though has no limits....if you fantasize that you can do a U turn with 120km/h, your mind will be able to do it, your can won't!". And a last thing, you have a pouder, a result of years of research that can boost the performance of a human to 800%! But there is a downside... it may cost you your life because of overacting, it may burn your muscles, or may explode your heart. Of course you have great chances to avoid all these "mays", now let me see you swallowing that powder

If you wanted a more powerfull car, why didn't you bought one ??
