Get a blow-off valve that allows plumb-back (recirculation) setup.

The original BMW valves are recirculating, so they release the unwanted air charge back in to the air intake, rather than venting straight to atmosphere like a typical BOV.

There are no performance differences, it just suppresses the noise a bit more.

I am not sure about whether they're "good" or not, but stick to reputable brands and you shouldn't go wrong.

Forge is a popular one that is recirculating, and I think turbosmart also make a recirculating valve for the N54 as well.

Mod 12 - DP, Vanguard exhaust and Spacers

Another step closer to FOB with install of a set of VRSF DPs and Vanguard Performance SS catback exhaust. Thanks to Whoosh and the boys at Active

Also wheels got a push out with 15s spacers on the rears. Front have to wait a week until 12s arrive

Pic 1 - Box spacers came in
Pics 2 - 6 - Vanguard exhaust before install
Pics 7 - 8 - New pipes

This is what a $250 exhaust sounds like
Clip starts with rear shot of Stock exhaust / No DPs vs Vanguard exhaust / VRSF DPs...
Second half of clips is the same comparison from inside cabin (windows down)
