I have invested money in a $700 Maaco paint job, $250 indash dvd thing, $180 JDM spoiler. $300 in Ebay clears, tails and headlights, and about $300 dollars in Autozone accessories. I also put in a $300 electric turbo and put my cold air intake directly behind one of the hottest parts on the car. I have devalued my car to the point that nobody wants to buy it. I am going to dead myself.

Wait if it's an electric turbo... doesnt that not make it a turbo? Technically it'd be more like a super charger. -$8000 for being tacky and dumb.

it dosnt matter, the electric motor dosnt have enough power to force any air into the engine and often takes HP away from the car. theres one type of electric turbo that actualy works, but it only forces about 1-2 PSI into the engine.

It's stupid. An electric fan that's supposed to pressurize the intake air like an exhaust driven turbo fan. Real turbos or belt driven super chargers really work. Electric fans don't

Your Ride: 2003 330xi
I just had the rotors, sensors, and brake pads replaced on my 330xi and now my brake travels almost 1 3/4" before effective braking. Before it was 1/4''. Mechanic says they are self adjusting and will fix itself. I think he didn't bleed the brake lines properly or there is air in them. Anyone out there have an opinion?
