installed aFe magnum force stage 2 intake on 328

After not wanting to drop $750+ for bmw performance intake, I decided to get aFe magnum force stage 2 inclosed intake. It was not do for power as 3 to 12 hp or what ever the claims they say. I wanted a little more growl than what performance exhaust was giving. And wanted closed system as so not to get any heat soak issues as with some of other open types.
Well it does have that growl just before 3000 rpm. Dont really notice power, flow difference to be honest. Maybe a little better low end, but that could be the noise doing that??
Looks wise, its not too bad, but its not like you can drive with the hood open.
Here is a pic

Would love to hear some more feedback on the "growl". I run my 08 E90 (pretty much stock except for wheels/tires/brakes) in HPDEs and I cannot hear the engine at all. So, I was thinking about going this route myself, hopefully to keep me off the rev limiter. What does it sound like at 6000 RPM? Could I hear the growl at 120MPH in fourth gear with the front windows open?

This should give close gains to the BMW Performance version. I would be surprised if it doesn't.

That would only be at an High Performance Driving Event on a closed track like Watkins Glen. The police and judges around here also take dim view of those kinds of speeds on the roads. Even without law enforcement there are too many other idiots out there to go that fast.
