BMW Performance intake/exhaust

Currently considering BMW Performance Intake/Exhaust as my first modifications.

Just need some advise regarding pricing and increase on power to my E92 328
Is it worth doing it?

Thanks,

Based on the research I've done, they're nice but not worth the money... there are plenty of great aftermarket options.

Minimal gains in aftermarket for 328. Easier to get hp gains from turbo motor (335).

Thanks,
BMW Performance Exhaust (PE) & Performance Intake (PI) combined would get you ~7hp increase MAX. Is it worth doing it? Yes & No, really depends on how you look at it. If you care about warranty then yes, if not, then you can go with an aftermarket intake but the PE is definitely worth it imo.
Personally i have the PE and i love it, I think its the one of the best (if not the best) sounding exhaust for an N52. I also went with injen intake, cuz i really don't care about warranty lol.

Performance exhaust is totally worth it and it's currently on promotion right now. As for the intake, I dont think its worth it.

Get it if you like it,

I have the Injen intake and custom Magnaflow axle back and it sounds nice to me. Nice throaty sound. As for performance both did minimal if anything in regards to performance.

Get the BMS JB tune for the N52, it definately makes a difference compared to the Exhaust and Intake.

Save your money on the PI! Gains from that intake is not worth nearly a G note. I have yet to hear anyone regret getting the PE though. Right now I have heard Mike from Marinello BMW in woodbridge is planning a group buy. I am holding out for that.
