My Ride: Supercharged '00 323
Just bought a supercharged e46!

Bought this car today, it is a 2000 323ci 5spd with a vortech supercharger. 185k miles, so far has been awesome I'm already in love! Aside from regular maintenance, I have big plans for this car, starting with a facelift, and an aftermarket stereo, this my first BMW and first manual and it's great!

Thanks! I'm not sure on the HP, seller did not have a dyno sheet. 19 inch wheels are planned in the future, and the wood trim will be replaced since it's cracking in a few spots on the door. I'm a DIY type so I'm glad I found this forum!

^LOL

I like the red. Keep it clean.

If I were you I would stay clear of 19's unless you get something light weight. The smaller the better. It won't rob you of power.

thanks again. About recirculating the BOV, is there a benefit to do this on an e46? It is setup for atmospheric blow off, can someone enlighten me if there is a better way?

I am not so sure with BMW's but normally an supercharged/turbocharged MAF car should have a recirculating valve.
