Here's an update!

I ended up waiting longer to get some more money because mod costs stack up fast.

Here's what I have done so far:
Carbon Fiber rear spoiler
Remus axle-back exhaust
AFE Scorcher Module
AFE Intake
Umnitza M-Tech Body Kit
Umnitza M5 front fenders

I will post some pics as soon as the car comes back from the body shop.

Now I am looking into these mods:
18 or 19 wheels
Front and Rear strut tower brace
High Flow downpipe and midpipe

I will keep you guys posted!
Chris

Hello all,

New-ish to the forum. So I got a 2012 528i with N20 engine and its been fun so far. Now, I am thinking of some very conservative power mods i,e a nice tune that would get me to in the region of 280-300Hp and hopefully c. 400Nm. The only other thing I might want to consider is a high flow downpipe. Has anyone remapped, modded for power their 28i n20? How impressive are the gains? Any reliability issues? Sensor issues? Would u recommend I do this? Who would be the best bet BMS stage 2? Anyone heard of these guys pro map? Your Vehicle Performance Details | Promap Tuning
Regards.
