Hmmmm, things are getting more interesting in the 328 world. My wifey drives a 328 Touring all of about 5,000 miles a year so her cars are generally a 5-6 year commitment. I have been anxiously awaiting news of the F31 in the U.S. because I truly feel that her car is 20-25hp short of where it "should" be. I too have been frustrated by reports of German tuners capable of coaxing huge power numbers out of these cars while we content ourselves with 10hp and a remapped throttle. I hope Active delivers on this...
That said, please heed my advice and launch a complete tuning program for the 328. Set your sights on an intake, exhaust and software program putting down around 230whp and you will sell all you can make, I promise. Now we're looking at a reliable platform that will rip off 0-60 in 5.4-5.5 and outhandle the 335 while doing it. The 328 may not get you into the latest issue of Eurotuner or break any records at the dragstrip but the market it represents is huge. Once you have put together a package that hits the magic 250whp mark, you've got at least one sale right here.
Anyway, thanks for listening to the community here. I promise it will pay off.

Hey Andrew,
I ordered my Simon Tuner for my 330 today through VAC. Going to put it on the dyno to see before and after results.

I'll give you a call to discuss some details on when to dyno (if driving the car for 100 miles or so, so the tune can "learn" from the aftermarket parts I have).

Looking forward to it!

I am definitely going to do a before and after. It may have to wait till next week. Just depends on when the tuner comes in to VAC and when I can get the car on the dyno.

I'm looking to do a AA Stage 2 tune and a euro airbox intake on a 330xi. Can these be performed in either order, or does the Flash need to come second?
