Living me some k&n

I just recently ordered me an intake for my 2000 BMW 328i online but the filter wasn't that great I could tell a little bit of difference but I just said the heck with it and got me a high flow intake filter from k&n and let me tell you I can tell a huge amount of difference now I need advise on what exhaust mufflers sound the best on my model I don't want loud and annoying but louder than stock and I guess just a good rumble or humming type sound. Any suggestions for a reasonable price. And do those turbo whistler things that mount in your tailpipe actually work for sound change.

Muffler delete, google it.

I think the "huge amount of difference" you notice is mainly placebo. However, it's good that you're having fun.

Hope you got thick skin because you're about to get lit up.....

I would suggest buying the water pump, thermostat and expansion tank first.

I know right. Too obvious. And obvious troll is obvious.

The golf tee mod makes it sound a lot more sensual

It does absolutely nothing in terms of performance, but it could add that magic "whistle" you are looking for.

If those using Krap & Nasty on their car had read any UOA's on their oil they'd throw them in the bin!
