So I have a 2011 328xi, inline 6, which runs great, but not quite the power I'd like. The factory warranty ran out so that's not an issue for me. Does anyone have any tips for modding these newer models? And I'm not putting junk in my car, I'm probably going Turbonetics or something comparable. *You get what you pay for!
Lol my hubby said the same thing when I got this car. If the 335 I had my eye on would've had 4 doors for the kids, I would have taken it home!
Not sure if there is any kits available, but if you can figure out the tuning aspect of it, you can buy a welder, porta band saw and do it yourself.

No turbo kits for that motor. Might find a supercharger kit at AA or ESS or VFE but I would put that money towards a 335i. A 335i with $500 JB4 tune would outperform the 328i with supercharger kit.
Don't waste your money. Trade for a 335.

Finding someone to tune it will likely be your biggest obstacle.
I agree, there's maybe one or two reputable shops in my area that would do it. I have a family friend that builds drag cars but even he says he hates working with euros & imports. I wish he'd reconsider tho cause his car runs low 4's on an 1/8th mile.
It would cost way more to make a 328xi fast than it would to sell it and buy a car that is faster to start with. My recommendation is to sell the 328 and buy something else
Best bet would be find a healthy 335i or 335xi, even on stock turbos with upgrades they perform very strong.
You would be re inventing the wheel modding that 328
