I have the Eurobox with the Dry AFE filter vs regular OEM. Others on babyBMW use the euro BMW performance intake filter, K&N euro or Pipercross. BabyBMW users didnt like oiled filters.

You can find gaisn with a modification to euro box in the style of Simota or even GruppeM, called Intake mod on Baby BMW originated by evoglyn.

Ingen intake is another option, it comes with dry option. It is an open filter intake. The open vs closed debate seems to favour closed or long tube open intake( we have no room for one)
