I Installed them. They sounds amayzing and looks great. Not really know about huge HP gain or power gain. But I can tell the rpm goes higher and feel more torques. I will post some pics and maybe vids if I can.

Congrats!

That mod is guaranteed to provide up to 15 additional mental HP across the board. Combine that with an M badge and it ups to 25 mental HP.

as much as you cant understand why people would spend so much money making mods to their own cars, i cant understand people who go out of their way to bring someone else down. he was excited and he posted his excitement. and we as a forum can benefit from him when he posts the quality and performace gains of the product, maybe there be any. to bring him down does nothing for our community and the bottom line is theres no point in posting to bring someone down. no offsense to you steve but if your going to be "critical" then be critical with a purpose. oh and BTW yes you are "hating" and yes you do know what that means.
I am with Biggie... let's keep the forum on the constructive discussion and debate side of the line. Who are we to make judgements on other members, how they spend their money, what they do to their cars? If you wouldn't personally do something another member has done, let them know that, but don't be personal - this is your chance to live vicariously, enjoy it!

(Well except for that horrid Bhatmalik (?)exhaust... but we won't go there that was just a failed attempt at covert marketing an underdeveloped product that went wrong )

One of the reasons I was attracted to this forum was the politeness of the posters and the quality of the discussion. In the beginning I asked some pretty dumb questions, and the members gratefully helped me out. If they had of come like jackals to a wounded goat I would have probably not returned.

I also have to say that when purchasing my BMW (I switched from Audi) I read another forum and the petty, bitchy, nastiness nearly made me reconsider my purchase as I didn't want to be associated with these attitudes. Thankfully I stumbled upon this one.

So I hate to lecture, but let's keep it polite, and let that not stop us from legitimate debate, but let's not loose sight of compassion and empathy. Let's keep this the best forum...

Zinco, I am happy it turned out well for you, and that you are pleased with the new sound of your car.

Intakes are fun, they sound great, and typically you can feel a little improvement in breathing at the top of the tach. Don't feel bad, that's a beautiful piece.

so the Gruppe M rep is good
since u also have the original K&N filter, is it more of an advantage?
like is having the k&n filter along wit the gruppem intake going to give u more of a difference than just having the intake alone?

The problem is that a lot of members say what they think instead of researching or simply using the search function on this website to see what others have already figured out.

The GruppeM provides you with a CF heat shield, a mini ram-air inlet, a K&N air filter plus adapter. It utilizes the stock intake pipe, which houses the stock MAF sensor.
