FYI, BMW "recommends" quite firmly that no additives be used.

Check the battery (voltage and drain). These cars are so heavily electrified that low voltage will cause these types of problems. You can also try charging the battery to top it off (this works if...

The 323i/328i models are the older ones (99-00), and had more trouble with subframes. The 325i/330i are newer (post-2001) and are better.

Sekurit is also an OEM supplier for BMW.

$500-$700 US$ seems a reasonable range; might be able to find it a bit cheaper.

I suggest searching out some non-ethanol gasoline (hard in some areas): puregas.org. But put some stabilizer in it, too.

Drive that sucker, rather than idle it. And run the A/C.

The 2010 year seems to be a good year.
Be sure to get a car with the "professional" or "HK/Logic7" sound system - BMW tried to put a base 6-speaker system with no amp into that model year.

You say your car is a 2000 model. That's an E46 - you should repost in the correct forum.

The answer is: an intake will not gain you more than 5 hp, if that.
