I recently bought a 1997 M3 Sedan. Being a family guy now, I had to purchase the sedan and the auto in order to keep one hand free for the kids. But, when I am alone, I enjoy the car for what it was designed. My question is: Is a K & N Intake a good option? Which series can I go with, and should it have any negative impact on the comp? Should I expect a notable increase in power? :nixweiss:

Congrats and welcome. Most intakes gain you sound, minimal preformace.

Yea, you may want to consider an intake, HFM, and a chip

I did so, and my but dyno says I got some gain... Is is worth the 1,000$ ? Well, that is another story....

I had a feeling that was the case...I have 0 experience with mods and Bimmers, but I had experience with Detroit muscle, and the only significant change I felt in a 93 Saleen was after I added a Supercharger (I was $4g's lighter)...Thank you for the welcome.

If you're looking for serious gains in these cars, expect to spend major money. Cams will produce good power gains, S/C and Turbos will produce major gains.. but at the cost of your first born.

Welcome and post some pics.

Welcome to the forum pics......

Like mentioned above the only way to get some big gains is through cams, and FI. Changing out the rear end does do a lot. I would reccomend a 3.46 or 3.64
