Nothing short o'forced induction will make a dent.

Look to your suspension & differential.

Re: 2007 328i

Yea I kinda figured it wouldn't do much. But still feel like I gotta do something.
What could I do to the differential?

Changing it from an open diff to an LSD is what he meant. There are Wavetrac and Quaife, and I think* that one might have a better rep for durability or being noise free, but I might be making that up.

Ignoring the limited life of the purchase, I think the best bang for buck is with tires. Look at PSS. Then for free, for the biggest bang for buck, control your PSI.

For suspension, people here are very high on Koni FSD, lots of posts and threads, please run a search on that. Smooths out the ride quite a bit apparently.

Yea Koni is on the way with a set of Kelleners light weight wheels. But looking for a intake and exhaust just to give it that sound. I curious about that differential though.

Sound? Don't bother buying anything....a little shadetree surgery and you're in Performance Exhaust territory....

Very interesting. Would I have to get rid of the cats as well?

Re: 2007 328i

Sounds mean on the M3. On the 335i it sounds a bit weak. I'm afraid it would only sound ****ty on the 328i. You know of any videos of it being down on a 328i cause I can't find any.
