Looks so hot.. but I doubt I'd pay that much for minimal gains.

Looks great! Hope you feel it gives you value for money. Why don't you get custom made CF body panels to match it?

I think this intake is pretty but performance wise, the MSDS stage 2, Logic HVI, and UR CAI intakes will give a better performance gain than the Gruppe M. IMO

woow that looks pretty sick ...you need to do a youtube vid of the sound.

I'm dying to do something to mine to improve the sound. damn now i'm second guessing going to eurofest cause i'm going to see so many mods that i'm going to end up spending a lot after the fact.

Guess i'll start saving now

kudos to having a baller intake and being unique!

As mentioned before, the price is not because of the CF, thats the icing on the cake. GruppeM has always been recognized as doing their homework and producing some of the best engineered intakes money can buy.

Yeah but this system seems to just copy the OEM system, but with CF and a added scoop at the kidneys...Its nice, but compared to other intakes, its doesn't seem to have better performance gains than the other ones out there, and their price is out of control....Asthetics of the intake is awesome though for the engine bay, thats for sure!!!

Perhaps the stock set up is near perfect? I simply don't trust claims made by local shops because typically their dynos don't simulate real-world airflow when on the dynos, etc.

Hell, most aftermarket intake are not even cold air intakes. What is the GruppeM's gains?
