I agree i would buy it too if it was around $900 from Gruppe M. The point is that it does not matter what it does for the car, i dont care about the gains that it gives, it is an intake system. It should be priced accordingly, not inflated because we drive BMW's and not Civics. If Gruppe M made a complex intake for a civic i am willing to bet money that i would not be anywhere near the price that it is for a 335i becuase not one person would buy it. I just dont like companies trying to rip others off because they think they have lots of money. It hurts the reputation and sales of a company and gives other people a reason to make a replica.
