3 Series Noob (my GF) Need some basic info...

Hello, I actually drive a 650 but my GF just picked up a 2012 328ix that I believe has the inline 6 engine. I am looking for answers to a few questions... Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance.

1. What is the "E code" for this model car? I am confused.

2. This car is nearly silent. It needs some help lol... I was thinking of doing an AFE intake and possibly a Magnaflow muffler (leaving stock resonators in place), but the 2012 "328i" 4 cylinder turbo part vs. my GF's inline six cylinder parts obliviously are very different and it causing me a headache!

Can you give me recommendations and part numbers on an intake/exhaust combo (inexpensive solution... not a $1100 cat-back system) that will make this car sound good but not silly. Part numbers would be great!

Thanks guys,
