Doesn't matter which one you go with, your cars performance will suffer. I had the original AFE CAI and the only thing good about it was the sound. On hot days the car felt like a tank on take off. There might be a slight performance increase at high speeds since you will be pulling in plenty of cold air but on take off your car will be pulling in a lot of hot air from the engine bay.

You will be better off with a stock intake with a K&N drop in and the carbon filter cut out. The next options would be either a BWM performance intake or a Euro intake with a K&N cone. All 3 options are far better than an open CAI, which in reality is nothing more than a heat sponge.
