Would you turbocharge your BMW?

If you own a BMW 330i E90 or 530i E60 would you purchase a turbo kit for your vehicle within the next 3 years if it was reliable, proven, could be easily installed and if pricing was around $7000 for 300rwhp, $8000 for 350rwhp and $9500 for 400rwhp.

This would be assuming the kits would be easily installable and come complete with everything required. The dyno results would be shown in both video and graphical form.

i would if the kit was a reasonable price(like civic turbo prices), and was "safe to use" for normal driving.
