Best Intake for E90 as of right now.

Hi, wanted to find out what is the best intake system for 2006 330xi as of right now. People are talking about the INJEN Intake alot saying its prety good and it was recently build, are there any other that are better. Is there one that has dual system insted of just one filter system, not sure if that would make a difference. And if someone has a good idea abt intake and know which one already are in the market if they can make a new post of adding all the intakes that are out and will be out soon and compare them and put down there prices. That would be nice. Let me know thanks

stop being lazy and search or even read the intake threads.

Injen, Simota, AFE, BMW performance, Gruppe M, Gruppe M rep, all have been discussed ad nausem and each intake has its reviews, read them and decide for yourself

bump, great i did look through them all but still was having issue, i mean i went under
NA Engine (non-turbo) / Drivetrain / Exhaust Modifications
and serched for intake so it would bring up all the threads, but still alot of them people were askin gquestion. For example under exterior modification they have a thread that has all the angel eyes out in the market with price and difference abt them i figured there might be one here but guess not. Thanks though

Go with the BMW performance with OEM build quality. I have heard some issues with Injen and Fujita intakes.

so far the Injen is best performance to price ratio.

For some reason no one can get the hose issue fixed on the Injen and
are getting CEL's. It is best performance for money though

that is what i figured, the sound comes from the pipe leaving the filter going to the engine and the stock one has a silencer on it to muffle the car. but for $900 i mean, it is cheaper than group m but still i would expect more for that money and the dinan one is 500 so its just a huge mark up game

I am happy with my Bimmian/Simota. Never had any CE light or any issues. Great sounds and looks better than any other intake but Gruppe M. It sounds killer with my Dinan Exhaust.

We've got a huge variety of intakes available for the E90--check out our site under the Intake section under BMW > E90.

Our most popular intakes right now are the AFE intakes.
