Intakes

I am thinking about getting an aFe intake and maybe some scoops, but I am not sure if the scoops are worth it. BTW I have a 2010 328i e92. Let me know what you guys think I should do.

+1, this will actually do more for you then the intake will as far as performance. Intakes are more for sound, and unless you really work at it dont yield too much of a gain on average.

You would get better performance out of your stock box, with a K&N drop in filter, and removing the carbon filter. Add the scoops and you will feel the difference. Not much of a sound increase here tho, so its a trade off

I heard that the aFe CAI adds a lot of power and I am still debating the scoops if they are all the same i might as well get cybas $39 than the aFe $95..

Scoops are worth it with the open ended intake to channel in more air. We also offer aFe intake and scoop packages so you get a combined discount.
