Well, I don't know that I'm against nitrous oxide, It's just that nitrous like so many "go fast goodies" is usually way more expensive than most people realize to set up properly on a BMW. The M5 I put a system on totaled up close to $4k before it was complete but it made for a fun ride. To get it where the nitrous was really usable required a full day on the dyno, custom mapping of the fuel enrichment, changing to a racelogic traction control system to interface with the nitrous system, and quite a bit of fabrication for the install.

It is a classic example of an old Hot Rod adage - Speed costs money, how fast does your wallet want to go?

FMU is the closest shop I know of to you that has the type of facility to properly set up and tune a quality nitrous setup on an OBD-II BMW. There might be a shop like them in your state, but if there is I don't know of it. Below is are a few pics of their install on a customers e46 M3, and a link to their site and Wizards of NOS, the european outfit they source their BMW systems from.
