udubbadger has a 328xi and he has the simota intake in his car. i remember reading that the 06 330xi had fitment issues due to the fan placement in the xi compared to the i. i think your best bet is to pm udubbadger and ask him about it.

As far as we know it will fit the 325i, 325xi, 330i, 328i, and 328xi. It didn't fit the 330xi because of the larger fans.

not really... no intake (other than the new Injen short ram) has made any substantial gains on a dyno (more than 1 or 2 hp).

My intake I guess made power, but I dont think so. I only made 196whp on
a dyno dynamics with intake and exhaust which would be 221whp on a
dynojet. The 328i with Injen intake made 21Xwhp on a dyno jet with an automatic
no less. I think my car is under what its supposed to be making in power.

I mean it was 100 ambient temps on the dyno. The 328i was on a cooler day, oh well.
The first run I made 205whp, which would be 231whp. They dyno guys said it was wrong
I want the Injen, because I know it is proven to make power and not lose power
when its hot outside like my AFE. My AFE does work really really good when its under 80 degrees though.

Yup- these have been out of production and we don't think they will ever make them again.

Thanks for the confirmation I made up my mind, I'm going to go with the Injen intake.
