Nicky why keep lying? If you can show a gain in a NA bmw then by all means-you cannot however so stop lying. A FI is a different story so stop making poor recs to oblivious gullable owners

Guys,

My feedback was on the N54 however I have had positive feedback from both local customers and customers who have bought from us online about this particular intake for the N52. aFe, as I mentioned before, does a peak flow test on each of their intake systems to ensure there is a noticeable and measurable increase in flow.

The reason I used the N54 is because that is what I have personally installed, however, the N52 system has been successful when paired with a software tune to take advantage of the increased air flow. This is exactly why I suggest doing a custom tune like AA that can take advantage of the increased air flow.

I dunno... sounds pretty reasonable to me.
Intake alone = FAIL
intake + tune = win!!?

Ever stop to think those positive ratings are from idiots that used to drive Civics with cracked body kits, neon and a 7" coffee can exhaust tip?

I'll stick with what BMW designed for the car. They tend to be pretty much on the mark from the factory as it is.
