Are the AFE scoops Drilling free? and craven are yours drilling free also?

I didn't want to have to do any drilling as this is a leased car was hoping it was just a "snap in" kind of deal.

No drilling at all on the Cyba stuff, they use a screw that is already on the car to attach too.

Just replied to your PM also

Off topic, but has anyone tried scoops at the bottom ducks, like an M3, and divert the air into a Cold Air intake system? It sounds like it shud work :P

make your own. people who actually pay for this kind of stuff i cannot agree with. plus its not something that takes scientific research to make. just need 15 min , ruler, stainless steel sheet, cutter, paint of whatever color you want it to be.

total = 20 bucks (with enough to mess up 3 times)

20 bucks of stuff and how much of your time to save that extra 20 bucks? I know you say its taking you 15 minutes, but to think about the whole thing, taking dimensions and everything?

Needless to say that you can hardly tell my Cyba Scoops are in but unless you are BOSS at cutting and bending steel, everybody will be able to tell you saved that $20.

I agree, not everyone has the time, tools or knowldege to fabricate a pair of scoops so cyba scoops are the best way to go IMO.
