My Ride: 2001 330Ci
TiAg "Dinnan" 330Ci in NC

Hey People
Recently picked up my first car since being bike only for the last 4 years... 2001 330Ci with only 49,xxx miles. Car has Dinan stainless exhaust, CAI, and stage II ECU. I've added an M3 steering wheel since taking ownership and don't feel a need to touch it from here... Always loved the restrained styling, precision, and tidy manners of these cars; now proud to own one! Thanks for the advice so far.

What would OEM clears run me? I'd rather be a dork with amber side-markers than introduce foreign components. My mindset for this car has been "love it for what it is" and save the money towards something that was designed ground-up with all the bits I wish my car had (M3.) Thoughts?

No dyno in my garage, dawg. I suppose I could read the Dinan packaging for whatever they claim to add? I'm pretty satisfied knowing when I put the right foot down, I smile.

good deal, I have the same mods. Stage 2 software, exhaust, I replaced the Dinan CAI with a K&N and added Dinan Strut Brace. I got 224,000 miles on my 2001. Enjoy you're new ride.

Totally forgot about the Dinan strut brace under my hood! Why did you change out the CAI, something I should know about?
