    What to do next

    I have a 2008 535xi six speed manual. Car is in perfect mechanical condition, just had the 75,000 mile BMW service by a real good independent mechanic,recent coils and plugs. I have the Cobb flash tune on it and I can only get 91 Octane in my state with 10% ethanol. My question is what should I do next for more power? DPs?, FMIC?, exhaust, intake? I like the Cobb, at first I was blown away by the difference between the tune and the stock setup, I have gotten use to it and would like to be blown away again! Any suggestions? Thanks everybody!

    There's only one thing to do. Pull out your credit card and get online and order DP's, FMIC, DCI Intake, Charge Pipe, Meth Kit unless you can get some E85 around you order one of the fuel pump options. Exhaust is on you since it really doesn't add much power usually it's chosen for how much and the kind of sound you want. And since you running Cobb you'll want to learn how to tune it yourself or pay for a custom tune. Have fun.

    Intake you should already have. Otherwise, DP's and FMIC will really help you with 91 octane, and you can have them both on the cheap these days.

    You will only be "blown away" again with e85, race gas, or meth.
