Those aftermarket oil filters are good quality and will last many years if maintained, but I wouldn't expect any noticeable performance gain. Mayeb a few horses when combined with a tune. The tune is totally worth it btw - stock bottom end is flat as hell before the tune.

I will not hijack the thread, and leave it to my good friend JS to answer that.

There are threads on this board that talk about tunes and I think it will help you get a good understanding as to what you get. Keep in mind, your relationship with the tuner has to be long term, which means you need to look at who will give you the best customer service. Do your research, and if you choose a particular tune, and have questions, ask them before committing. If the tuner is not prepared to field your questions, then keep away from them. Your car ... your money, so choose wisely.

I'm not too sure, but you'd need a remote or diy tune.

Mine was from southern bm, but I had the car at their shop in melbourne. I would try davedee from gintani as he has previously done a couple and those guys in the US produce some good tunes. Or mike benvo in the US also does them. I think you buy the cable and they remotely log in through software on your laptop

i have used k&n on most of my past vehicles including my x5 and e46 m3. not a power adder really but nice to be able to clean and maintain them as needed.
