Quick update, I got a set if bimmerbrakes gen3 headers, and they're being ceramic coated. I have plans to supercharge in the spring! I will post a video of my exhaust with and without headers once they're on

If you want extra power, why not just start out with a 330i ZHP? You would already be 50hp up.

I'm not worried about that extra 50 hp, if I got cams and supercharged it, I would not be complaining that my steering wheel doesn't say M

To each their own. My steering wheel does say M though, for the eventual day that I too, venture into FI.

Honestly beating other BMW's isn't really my thing, haha I'm just looking to have a good time with my car and beat many many Hondas. I love the ZHP and M3 and I want a white 2006 m3 badly, but for the time being I love my car

With what you are spending you could probably have an M3! I know I've put way too much money into my car and its just the beginning!

Haha there's no right way to spend money with BMWs. And FI or M3 is a huge question with me! Haha nothing is set in stone
