    Advise on supercharging my BMW E46 328

    yeah, it will be worthwhile holding back and gather as much info as you can, dont just take info from simpson though, phone everywhere this will give you a good price range for the results you are expecting and setups, i had the 2.2 hdi 406 too, paid 300 for it, 240k sweet as a nut, never got it...

    E36 318iS easy tuning

    I disagree, putting say 1 bar boost on a 318is and a 328i, there both beast's in their own right, but the 328 would see huge gains relatively safely over the 'is', and weight? theres hardly any difference, plus the 6 cyl is smoother i have owned both 4 and 6 cyl, and about me getting beaten by a...

    it would be wise to get it done pro, there are alot of things that can and will go wrong in 'un-informed' hands, you can run whatever bhp with stock internals, its just how long they last! its not a job to do cheaply on this car thats for sure, the non steptronic auto boxes are notorius to fail...

    E36 318iS easy tuning

    theres not much point tuning a 318is, at most, sort out induction and exhuast and chip it, if you have 3-4 grand for it, throw that at an m3 or 323/325/328, you will still have some cash left to tune that or insure it

    Locking wheel nut lost!

    There is very little difference in e36 locking wheel nuts if any, i have removed countless sets with a couple of keys, go to a breakers yard and get one, get a hammer, smack it in there, it may even fit straight in
