    Hello everyone, I have a 2005 325i and I was wondering if there were any sites that could give a comprehensive overview of the engine. Also, I'm interested in some relatively simple mods, strictly performance based to increase the HP a little at a time.

    Check out the Bentley manual for car details

    If you want to add performance the Dinan upgrades are reliable. But keep in mind that only together do the mods really get you going faster. And the difference may be quite subtle to you.

    Separately (one at a time) the mods may be imperceptible/ you may not feel it.

    To learn about the engine and car, get a Bentley Service Manual for the E46.

    ISBN anyone?

    I've done a quick search online for this, and there are a bunch of options... Could someone give me an ISBN# please? My car is a 2005 325i. Just want to confirm I'm getting the right book before I buy it. Thanks:)
