Raising again...I am about to do this mod on my 330i with 87k miles . I am planning to do the following:

1) Wash my engine bay troughly.
2) Replace stock air filter for K&N (price difference is only $15.00)
3) Charcoal Delete (why not, thanks to all your post experiences)
4) Replace stock fog lights for thunder 7500K H11 super white.
5) Replace cabin filter as well.

Thats all for now. I know, not major mods but they surely are interesting. Of course, I will post my overall results.

Any suggestions while am it? Cheers!

Thank you guys!

Charcoal delete

Hey Guys,

How's the performance of the car since charcoal delete took place? I am planning to do it with my 2011 328i xDrive wagon. Do you guys think the BMW Performance Intake has a charcoal filter? Is it worth it to buy one or stick with the charcoal delete and K7N filter?

Many thanks.

I did this filter delete + k&n a couple of weekends ago. I can say there is maybe a very minor difference but not much at all.

The performance intake uses part of the stock intake which has the. Charcoal filter on it. So you have to cut the charcoal filter out and then put the performance intake and K&N filter together. Is it worth it, in my option I have it and I could of just put the K&N filter in and cut the charcoal filter out and I would of had the same thing. The only difference is the performance intake air duct is alittle bigger, but you will not notice it. So for the $700 you spend I would put towards a 3 stage manifold or tune or headers before I spend the money on a Performance Intake again.

Just my option
