AWD Bimmer Question....

I've been debating on which 3 series i want to get as my first bimmer. I want the ability to add a supercharger to it because I enjoy forced induction. I have never seen a blown 325xi or 330xi. Is there a reason for that? Would the AA twin screw supercharger still work on the 330xi?

Also, any special things I should know about either model?

All the help is much appreciated!

Mine was supercharged for a long time. Took it off due to too many issues (think it needed new impeller blades, but never bothered, as it wasn't worth the cost). I am one of a very, very few who has had issues with the blower. And FYI: it was installed in '02, when these blowers were brand new. If I had it to do all over again, I would install the blower.

I'll put it this way: when she was running well, she could walk a lot of cars. Most fun I had was racing a modded R32 and a Dinan E46 330 on I-95. Walked both of them with ease.

There is no substitute for more hp.
