The *MAYBE* couple degree drop you'd get from a "heat-shield" made of plastic will get negated at the turbos and cooled back down by the intercooler before entering the intake manifold anyway.

You guys can try and justify $280 filters and plastic all day, but do a little research and you'll see how much of a waste of money it is. Now, when it comes to volume, the cone filter will flow more air over stock at higher rpm's, but again, the cheaper versions will more than suffice.
THX for the answer out of the real world

Here is mine, paid $350.
I don't regret getting it, but I also don't recommend this over the BMS either.

I had the bms and sold it and went back to stock. I thought it was stupid to take all that intake off and just slap on filters. Why would BMW waste the money making the box if 2 filters were better. I'd get the stett if anything.

To reduce emissions, sound and engine clutter. Thats exactly why.

+1 and use I use K&N, the snorkel is there for a reason, to suck air away from the engine bay and not from within it as the dual cones do. I had a single cone for months and it sounded cool but the car felt sluggish at first all stock and all but with K&N drop in filter it was a lot better. Maybe it's just me but the box is not that thin and it does give you cooler air. There are theories that you get less air with the stock box because of the restrictions, I disagree to all that BS. Pop in the high flow filter and the car feels better to me.

High flow filter = $50 and it will not look ghetto.
