My Ride: 2004 330ci
2004 330ci Dinan Mods

I'm just about ready to pull the trigger on the following Dinan mods, but keep wondering, "Is it really worth it?" I'm saving my pennies to purchase a 2005-2006 M3 within the next 18 months or so, but I'm a little bored with my coupe at the moment. It's an automatic (I know...spare me the ridicule. The M3 will be a 6-speed!) with 83K miles. Given the price ($980), I'm mainly wondering if the exhaust is worth it. I'm also a little concerned about whether the added HP may cause any stress issues with the transmission. I know it's not a lot, but it's an increase nonetheless.

Intake - $300
Install installation - DIY
Stage 1 - $300
Stage 1 installation - $60
Exhaust - $700 (on sale)
Exhaust installation - $180
Stage 2 - $400
Stage 2 installation - $60

In short, it's $660 for the intake and about 15 HP or $1,640 for the whole package and about 19 HP. Any insight would be appreciated.

Thanks, All.
