Berger Motor Sports Dual Cone intake can be had for around $100-150.

If you want better you can get AFE Dual Cone with heat shield. That's around $400.

Performance and intake are mutually exclusive.

Make your own for less than $50. No need to spend a crazy amount of money for something you can make yourself.

I feel like the intake is an area where BMW owners are taken advantage of. Just because it is a luxury car doesnt mean that you need to pay out the a** for a filter. Just my $.02

My recommendation - check out the private seller section of this forum. I picked up an afe stage 2 intake in December for under $200 bucks

Don't waste your money. You won't get any performance gain.

+1 a stock engine is not taxing a stock air cleaner. If you want a "performance sound" get the BMS system for $100.
