That's a terrible answer to that question.

If there more 328's, theres more customers.

The 328 uses a different computer and from what I was told, is harder to modify and decrypt the coding. It took years for anyone to even get this far with the 330/325, so just give AA a bit more time, and they,ll have a stage2 for the 328

Yea I know just messing with you. I think it was dumb on BMW's part to drop the 330i though.

I'm in, but let's see what AA has to say. Several people already bought it for full price. I would kinda be unfair to do that to the people who first bought it.

They might do a group buy when the buying frenzy from their promotional pricing slows down

I heard the MMW headers and I really dont like it. Even a 20whp gain wouldnt be enough to have this on my car; besides, MMW is kinda burned in my book. Their Bolt-On Midpipes were as bolt on as fixing a Mercedes exhaust on a bimmer would be. Whole story: http://www.e90post.com/forums/showth...5#post11340235


And for the use I make of that car, I need it to be quiet when needed to be. With my setup, shifting at low RPMs almost sound like a stock car... almost. But with headers, it would sound more like a race car. Not what i'm looking for.

If we get back on the topic...

I wouldnt bet too much money on the group buy to happen. You're gonna end up buying it anyway and they know it.

You have way better chances to make a deal with a reseller.

Update:
My ECU landed at their facility yesterday.

I have heard nothing but bad experiences from MMW from my buddies here in Houston. Glad you ended up with the PE though =/

Think i'm going to wait to get PE, and 3-stage manifold before doing this.

Seems like the way AA is giving attention to the N52, a stage 3 won't be too far away.

Talk about a bad experience. I thought their midpipes were plug and play? Anywayz, i'm looking forward to the gains you get from stage two. Another 10whp would be pretty sweet. I know they might not go for the group buy but a bit of hope never hurt anyone....
