Skip the intake if you are planning to buy a supercharger. Most SC kits will come with their own so no need to buy 2 and throw one away.

My Ride: a car
get used to it amigo, when you are new you get cr**. In time you will be a wise one in the ways of e-46fanatics.

BTW i have an '02 325ci fun little car. I don't have too many mods done to mine, but i have fun searching around and seeing what is going on, also our sponsors have a great inventory of stuff. I have used European Auto Source (EAS) bought my angel eyes from them and corners. i am planning to use DDM Tuning for some other stuff.

We can help you with the exhaust, intake or supercharger. If you get a supercharger, you obviously won't need the intake but the exhaust would be a good combo.

unless you want to spend thousands, buy an intake (ECIS at ecisbmw.com), an exhaust (highline tuning.. plenty of used ones for sale on the site), and chip (shark injector), and call it a day.
