BMS Filter vs. AFE Dual-Cone Intake

So pretty much... I love the new AFE Dual-Cone Intake haha. Feels pretty much the same as the BMS Filter but it is a much deeper, more pronounced sound. Terry much love to you for the Filter but the Dual-Cone Intake won me over I got the oiled version because I heard it flowed much better.

Here is a video for now... Enjoy!



Here are some updated pics:

Looks like the front one is gonna get dirty a lot quicker than the rear one....

Congrats on the new mod!

question to cone vendor: so why do you sell those dual cone units when they don't produce any more hp than a well designed single cone one?

answer: those BMW guys will buy it and I make 50% more profit!

So what do you think on the throttle response/power? From what I experience, I think I can feel more pulls and quicker response in 1st to 3rd gear compared to the BMS.

I guess I don't understand how the dyno's show identical numbers. Did you ever clean your BMS? I suspect the difference is one of two things...

1. The AFE is new and hence the filters are clean. If you cleaned your BMS, it probably would have felt the same.

2. Placebo effect.

I knew before I bought the thing that it wasn't going to churn out those ridiculous numbers. I wanted it for the looks and sound and as long as it was a slight improvement over the stock box i was all for it. Dont get me wrong the BMS was awesome. It had that "spool" sound from the get-go.. The AFE was a little quiter which was okay with me but 1000 miles later on the AFE its getting progressively louder and louder...

I cleaned the BMS when I first bought it with the K&N cleaner. So yup.. clean from the very beginning and it got dirty as hell after 2k miles..

Before I could only hear the AFE with the windows down and slightly when it was up but now I hear it, very pronounced, when the windows are up. I dont listen for it anymore but everytime I hear it and people look at the ride.. brings a smile to my face...

I am 100% with you. The AFE is a great looking intake. Power seems to be similar to BMS, but as we all know looks make a big difference or we wouldn't have spent all this money for the car.
