Hey guys I'm just wondering you guys can help me out with your expertise. I'm just wondering what my best bet is, installing a turbo or a supercharger into my 3-series. Let me know what you think, no comment/suggestion will be over looked:)

personally , i'd go with s/c...but u can get more power out of a turbo probably, costs more in the end tho.

Ya supercharger for sheer selection and reliability. Turbos cost a friggin fortune and good chances are youll have to tear down the entire engine as a s/c is straight bolt on. As for all out power, Turbo.

i think the only problem with bmw turbo setups is that there arent that many kits out there, eveyrone has gone out of their way to provide a good s/c kit, im sure with the prices invovled, you could build a custom turbo kit around an m50/52 engine that would be relatively reliable
