I really don't know why BMW made two different designs? The only conclusion I came to was to help the euro versions make more power? Like I said I am really happy with this mod combined with the K&N filter.
Would love if you could post a video with sound, so I could hear the "growl"?

Do you have any other engine mods? exhaust mods?

Just curious, your account list you as in the EU (Germany) if that is the case, then why would your E90 be originally equipped with the USA/North America air box? If you are in Europe wouldn't it come stock with the Euro Airbox?

Thanks
