If I wasn't already running Cobb I think I would look seriously at MHD, which I think most people will do once they see the cost benefit. There is always going to be people out there that post all...

JB4/Cobb/MHD, downpipes, better exhaust, FMIC, M3 suspension bits, Koni FSD shocks/struts. A small search on here will find more information than you will be able to read in a week.

Welcome. My first BMW was also a 328xi coupe in Montego blue and I owned it longer than any of my others. I also fell in love with that color and as you can see I came back to the closest thing to...

A couple of your pics appeared upside down, so I had to save it and reopen it and then rotate it to see it right side up, but that is a sweet looking ride right there. I wish I could convince my...

That does look very similar to the Cobb menu when it comes to selections for 91 vs. 93 octane and then how many bolt on's you have.

I already run Cobb, but I am always interested in something new/ different. And of course cheaper isn't a bad thing either.

I would guess that it is most likely related to the gas cap not being tightened all the way. This will throw a code, and if you tighten it all the way down and drive your car the light will go out.

I like the new stance, and the clearance between the tire and the fender well is much improved. Looks much more like a sport suspension should.

Was that a hero run or what you intend to run all the time? I dyno'ed mine with just straight 93 octane because I had no plans to run anything higher full time on it.
