    Where to buy Performance upgrades for my new 2014 535d xDrive

    I merged these threads into one forum to save us replying multiple times to your questions, plus I'm sure people with the 535 will be looking in this forum. Where have you tried? are you happy to import them? Did you see anything on ebay, i put a link up in one of your other threads.

    Mazda3

    Fast road cams are you best option on that then you'll get a better top end. The current exhaust and intake actually flow quite well, so you'd need to add a lot of power before you need to upgrade unless you just wanted the more sporty sound. Avoid induction kits though you are better off with...

    Old drivers good or bad or dangerous?

    People do like to generalise which is a shame and it is the small minority that give the whole group a bad name. Old drivers cause less damage than young drivers, statistically this is why younger drivers pay so much for their car insurance.

    had my xkr remapped stage 1

    Do you get a yellow warning light (check engine)? Get a reading on the fault codes, my guess is there is a split hose somewhere. A remap can put extra stress on an engine and show up any weak spots or problem areas. If you replace the hose get something better, silicone works on most hoses, but...

    Suspension/wheels setup

    Toe out improves cornering and handling but ruins straight line stability, it's a always a compromise on suspension settings, plus we have to take into account rough road surfaces and cambers to give a smooth comfortable ride. Generally I prefer a little toe out and camber to sharpen the cornering.

    Fitting a turbo to a NASP car

    https://www.torquecars.com/tuning/adding-turbo.php It is possible but will take a fair bit of time and money. Have you looked into superchargers? They seem to be a little easier to fit and setup compared to a turbo and might work better on the Sonic 1.6 engine.

    2005 Mazda Bounty turbo SDX upgrade to larger aftermarket turbo. Help! EEEk!

    Fuelling and timing are always critical when running increased forced induction. As @TCJBOLDIE pointed out making the engine stronger makes a lot of sense. I'd personally drop the compression ratio a little, to give a little more overhead for boost to be added.
