Be careful with intake claims. Since I've been on this site, there's been a few new intake products, each met with waves of enthusiasm and claims from owners, only to be followed several months later with occasional admission of buyers remorse.

I did the "intake for skeptics", the charcoal delete on the stock airbox. Did it help? Maybe. Maybe I saved $400.

After spending the money on the performance intake from BMW. In my option it might give you 1-5hp but if I was to do it over again I would just buy the K&N drop in filter and charcoal delete.

The only difference I have seen between doing the drop in and performance is that the performance intake is alittle bigger. But for the price and what the gains are I bet the drop in does the same as the performance.

Just my option.

I have this intake. The sound is great. Surge problem seems to be gone. The only thing i don't like about it is the fake cf cover. I'm thinking of painting it blue to match my car's color. If you guys want power then a 3 stage manifold + AA tune will do.

I have this intake on my 325i. It sounds great, especially around 4k rpm. When I placed the order I was under the impression the cover was real carbon fiber, and was very disappointed when I saw it in the box. It resembles mini chessboards more than it does carbon fiber. I am definitely going to repaint it.

The gasget supplied for the MAF is a cheap round foam piece that doesn't create a good, reliable seal, your better off making your own gasket out the foam you can get at a hobby store (not suggesting that, just making a point).

As far as noticeable gains, don't expect it. For me I had to settle with just the awesome sound and continue on trying to get out of the shadows of the 330i as far as hp is concerned.

Nice heads up on the cheap gaskets. I ordered one the other day and it will arrive on the 14th. Was going to buy the euro box, but I found a dealer that price matched the AFE to the Euro box.

Please share info!

Currently this and Euro box are too pricey for an impulse buy.
