I don't think so any more. I'd save your money though unless you have other mods planned.

Mstyle sell the Agency Power stage 2 and PPCGB sell the Simota carbon box. They are the only places I have found to get induction kits easily online in the UK but they are very pricy in comparison to the BMS DCI from old Juiced up Tuning for example.

Wanting it more for the sound rather than any performance boost.

You will need a dci or similar then. As far as I'm aware the AFE and Simota are sealed and although should sound louder and nicer than stock are pretty subtle in comparisen to the open DCI's

Ship them in from the states customs isn't that much and there are many reliable retailers. I myself have shipped in DCI's, FMIC, DP's, JB4, Meth kit, Clutch stop, CDV, charge pipe, BOV etc etc. Always been happy with the service only problem is awaiting UK customs to clear the goods but never had a problem

The bms filters are fine. Just gave mine a clean and oil now feel good again..

Ultimately they are just two cone filters and a bit of metal piping. Pretty easy to replicate with off the shelf K&N filters. K&n would arguably flow better...

Americans say no. But as far as im concerned they do. They were my first mod and my car made something like 318 bhp and after 322 bhp. Ok not allot but im sure it must be more on a tuned engine. Even if just for the noise they are worth every penny. I can call my mate at tx and seebif he has my dyno on file. Iv had loads done by him though as he's a good friend of mine and they only cost me beer money per run.
