Default Upgrading BMW 316i

Hi Guys,

I want your opinion on upgrading my BMW 316i with the following:

1. K&N Filter - Will it be a good option?
2. Dual Free Flow Exhausts - Is it viable?
3. Angel eyes - Where do I get it?
4. M3 integrated Rear Spoiler - Where will I get it?
5. New set of HID's for high/Low Beams - H7??
6. Clear lens Fog Lamps - Do we get it here?

Any idea where in Bangalore can I get items 2-6?

Cheers

You mean the M3 lip spoiler? I have been looking out for the M5 lip spoiler for the trunk. Let me know if you find someone selling those or making them here.

Sahil, try Four Seasons automobiles at Tardeo. They've got a few stuff for some M5s in Mumbai. They'll definately be able to help you out. Call Lalitbhai on 9820289737 and give him my (chetan Dani's) reference.

Is this the car which was in Belgium, and then for sale in Calicut? Good condition but was asking too much.

It is a 316 compact if I am right with the old fashioned suspension of the e30

Do you know how much it was for? Are these cars reliable like the W124 though or is it better to avoid them?

Nope, This is not the one from Calicut or Delhi.

It's from Chennai and in good condition.
It's E36 not E30 and is a Sedan.

Thank you akshay for the links ... checking out the best option....

Please keep posting your expert advice on the upgrading front.

Cheers

You can put a KnN filter and it will be a good thing, a FFE will also be good but having dual mufflers wont increase your performance.

Hi, you can opt for KnN stock 33-2059, available in bangalore, and if you import it will be less if some one brings it for you. I have ordered for my E30 both air boxes are of same size. or you can go for KnN cone universal type, just have to make the flange to fit the cone, i did that too for my E30. you can go for Headers and FFE, reg headers you have to make one and nothing is available here. I am planning to do one here. regarding the integrated spoilers, we have to make one, it was done in chennai for an E36.
By the way where in chennai, i am in chennai too, and your car looks great. i have seen that car some time back in Guindy bridge.
