Please help with intake

Hey guys, I've read all about the intakes out there for my 325i and I cannot decide. I know performance is limited and about the same across the line but what sounds the craziest? GruppeM is still around $900...a little too expensive for me. Has there been any updates? most of the posts I've read are ancient and I just want to make sure I'm not missing anything. I'm considering britalman, afe, gruppem rep, simota, or fujita. I noticed some of these are labeled as Cold air intakes and ram air intakes. Are ram air intakes a subdivision of a cold air intake? Also is there an intake with a sealed box around it for more compressed air? Thanks a lot guys. Any help would be awesome. Go e90!

alright the short version would be...that fujita apprently loses power. I know afe and britalman sound good because there isn't a box. So simota and g m rep...which one is louder?

Afe? nice. I'm currently looking to buy one brand new local. The simota and g-m rep just didn't work out. Plus, I read that Afe has 6.5 hp gain as simota only has about one...

Trust me, you won't be dissapointed! It has been months since I installed mine and I still get excited at the sound of my motor.....I now have a motor sound which compliments the handling of my car......

I put an AFE on my 330i and it made a huge improvement on sound. Was good for a while then I did a muffler delete and made it sound amazing IMO
