i thought supercharging the awd was not a good idea for the drivetrain?

You need an "xi" supercharger, it has different piping or something that doesn't get in the way of the diffs.

And HPF doesn't deal in superchargers for BMW's, just turbo kits for the M3.

Yeah my understanding was F/I was not the way to go with AWDs. A few who went ahead and did it totally trashed their front diff and ended up with a RWD car ha... I guess you could try and run super low boost? I'm in the same situation as you and would really like to gain some more power with my xi but i'm scared to F/I it. Anybody know of any success stories here?

For that kind of money, sell your car and buy another with more horse power.

+1, don't take the weakling in the class and try to make Mike Tyson out of him.

Just get a 330 with the same money. It's a blast of power compared to the 325.

I've had it on for about 7 months and I drive it every day. I get on it almost every time I drive it

Don't think you'll win the longevity award, but tons 'O fun while the ride lasts!
Auto trans, front diff, and rear subchassis tears would keep me awake at night.
