Which intake to get

I can't decide between an INJEN intake or an AFE pro dry S intake for '07 328xi. Any recommendations?

Injen !! I have one and for me works better then an Afe which my friend got.
Saved me a lots of gas, sound is awesome, some little difference in hp and torque.
Take Injen : )

Thanks for your input. I'll wait for some more posts and then decide but that's what I'm leaning towards.
How is the sound?

Closed box is always gonna be better than an open intake especially for our cars. Although if you just want sound the open intakes are the way to go...you really feel it on hot days though.

i have AFE in mine and my boy got the same in his. i have an 08 328i sedan his is 08 328xi coupe. if you have a coupe have to slightly modify it.

we both love the sound. before i did my muffler delete the intake overpowered his PE exhaust.

This is what I got as well. Looks great and sounds much better than stock.

I got the aFe but it has problems with maf sensor placement. I ordered a piece for 60$ to space the sensor in the tube and its perfect now. Very responsive and Sounds amazing. Heads always turn thinking its an exhaust. Go with injen though. I've never heard anything bad about them and was gonna go with them but went with aFe because a friend had it and I already knew for sure it would sound great.

Any noticible increase in power, thottle response and especially fuel economy with the Euro Box? I like sticking to clean looking functional mods.

It's a condom for the intake i'm guessing it's so it keeps the filter clean but it's a mesh like so air can still go through, useless in my opinion.
