My Ride: 2000 BMW 328ci
My first BMW

I recently bought a 2000 BMW 328ci. And I love the car, it's just not fast enough. I posted a post earlier about maybe a ls-1 engine swap, but what I read about it, it seems like I will have a lot of problems trying to get the electronics right. So I'm thinking maybe just trying to do what I can with this engine. What is the best things I could do to get more power? The specs show I have roughly 192hp. I would really like to get atleast 300hp out of it. What's the easiest things I could do to get to or exceed my goal?

Hahaha if you want a car with hp you'll want an m3, only if you can afford the maintenance, cost you could be fine. It's a lot of work.

Wow like I said this is my first bmw.lol.. I have the 328 but the previous owner must have put a m3 body kit on it.. I didn't know there was a difference till I just looked it up. The m3 has a 3.2L and I have the 2.8L. But my whole body kit was changed, different bumpers and side skirts and the vents on the side says M3 on it that's why I was thinking it was the M3.
But anyways I'm looking for the best things I could do to it to give it the most power. It's just not fast enough for me. Any suggestions?
