Never thought I would see someone who "hates" the Msport wheels. The 437m's are pretty similar to the ones on your car only 19." I had 19" Msport on my last car an e90, but I have grown to really like the 18's on mine. I'll say a 19" is marginally more appealing but is only slightly better. Maybe, it's the color of car as well that gives the illusion that 18"s are pretty good.

Yea I think they're trash. I'll probably have them anodized and use them as a winter set.

Lol I was just looking at places in Massachusetts that will do it before I make the drive across the country. I'll probably do a 15% 3M Ceramic all around and 50% on the windshield

I don't like the 18" M-Sport wheels either. I much prefer style 397 for 18's.

Just do a jb4 intake and drop it on springs. No need for coils. You're not going to be tracking...exhausts on a 328 is just stupid imo. You want the dual tip look fine, but exhaust on a 4cyl is a joke.

Nice car. I would go BMS JB4 over stage 1 - I made the Stage 1 -> JB4 upgrade and well worth it. I would also highly recommend AWE exhaust. It gets you the dual setup with their kit, also doesn't cost $3K. Injen or BMS intake is nice, but it will only be sound appeal. May want to consider some ER hard intercooler piping too, Turbo -> IC and Charge Pipe.

Do you know if your wastegate is PWG (Pneumatic) or EWG (Electronic)?

On the AWE Exhaust - It sounds great in my opinion. I removed the OEM system and installed their single exit system in under 1 hour using a lift.



Also - Get into coding, you'll love the things you can tweak!

The N20 actually sounds surprisingly pretty decent with an exhaust. It's a much deeper note than I would have thought, and it burps great without crackling in the decel.

That is the AWE Exhaust I'm speaking of. Which also has zero drone / cabin noise from 65-85MPH. I was impressed with the interior silence.

The only reason I was considering coils is to maintain some sort of quality ride. I've read that springs and OEM struts become bouncy. As for the exhaust, purely for sound.

I would go Stage 4 but I need to maintain my warranty. Are CAI's voiding warranties?

Not sure yet if my Wastegate is electric or pneumatic, but I'm pretty sure it is electronic.

As for coding: I am very intrigued by it. I am familiar with tuning using EFILive/HP Tuners from my truck, but being able to enable and disable features is definitely appealing.

JB stage 1 + Injen Intake and Active Autowerke Exhaust would be great!

If you are looking for dual, check out AWE and Remus exhausts

The style of the 400m's and the 437m's is similar, but they look very different.

Nice compare--the shot of wheel to wheel is a good one. Yeah, they are different. I would agree the 437 do look better, especially the black on a white car.
