I've noticed alot of people are going with the conforti CAI. I've been wondering is there a big difference between the Gruppe M CAI and the Conforti CAI. I know the Gruppe M is almost impossible to get in Toronto but I'm willing to go far to get one if it's worth, so if anyone knows where Ican get one. If I decide to go with Conforti where should I go to get it. Jmalixi thanks for the info on the differentials and borla, any ideas of where I can go for them.

Used diffs are available at junkyards but keep an eye on the Classifieds at various forums especially e46fanatics. Turner Motorsport carries Borla.... here's the link http://www.turnermotorsport.com/html...&subcat_id=102

Jmalixi, Thank-you again. I would actually prefer a brand new differential though. Is there nowhere I could get one?

The dealer will be the only place I can think of.

BTW, is this for manual or auto? They do have different diffs.

Jnalixi- I found a couple. Dinan got 3.15 differential and turner motorsport has got limited slip differential with 20 different ratios to choose from. I also didn't realize that the dealer would be able to swap the 2.93 differential that comes with it for one with a different ratio. I'll have a chat with the dealer. thanks again, you r a life saver.

Does anyone know where I can get a new grille for my 2005 330ci. I'm thinking of getting to match my jet black paint. I'm getting the bimmian interior xenon lights, door keyhole covers, solaris 6 bulb kit electrum(amber light or niveus(xenon white light, which i don't understand because don't signal lights have to be amber, maybe i'm wrong) at bimmian. I was also thinking of the xenoflow 6000k or 8000k lights, but I'm not sure about them, so if anyone has any feedback please reply. I was also thinking Philips lights, but I don't know where to get them. Bimmian also has the custom grilles but I don't know if they fit my car.

get suspension and a system, clears all around...the AA exhaust and intake go well together, sounds very mean but not too loud at the same time to maintain the class of the car. hamann sells the blacked out grill for your car, either do that or get a used one and get it painted body colour to have a flush match. dont bother with the gruppe M intake its a waste of money, your better off investing in a LSD differential for the same amount.

MSanity, i've checked inmotion autowerks, on problem is I don't think it's same size grille as the one on it now. They one they have is supposed to fit all e46, but not all are the same. For example, mine is a lot wider than earlier ones. Do you know of any places where they specialize in bmw body work, so I can get the one on my car painted?

It's a grill. Any paint shop can spray it for you.
