Yeah, its tempting. For probably $4500, it could get my car near 300hp which is pretty decent. I could go 535i obviously and then do jb4 for around 400hp, but its gonna cost me at least $25000 to do that, not to mention my car isn't worth much to resell, so its definatley not a bad option. I've put probably $6k in maintenance and repairs in the last 6 months, so it will probably run well for a while.
It just seems funny at the thought of supercharging a 525i, it would be nice if I had a 545 or something and did it, but overall this kit seems like a good deal for a roughly 80HP addition.

Sounds good, it's definetly worth it! let me know if you need more info, to place an order and your deposit call vf-engineering. Tell them your part of the group buy, BTW its starts at $3795 which is already discounted from $4500, so if we get more than 5 well get even more off!

Well, I have a Dinan-tuned 545 here. Though I'm pretty satisfied with my current setup (very sublime!), I certainly would be very tempted in making a similar move for more power and torque!! But sadly, they still don't offer a V-8 based supercharger unit as yet. Oh well, perhaps down the road? BEST REGARDS.

Remember, you can usually re-gear these superchargers by replacing a pulley and produce more than the advertised power. This often results in voiding the warranty.
