I Agree, but any extra cold air is a bonus and I can feel a difference, so I'm pleased with this as a simple and easy to do MOD.

I didn't want to spend huge amounts on the Dinan or the Japanese CF one (I can't remember the name) or have an additional filter to clean etc.

I used to have the stage 3 Riss Racing intake and loved it, but the filter needed cleaning every 3 months and god p'eed off with that hassle.

So I have:-
Helene Streamline Air filter
And the above MOD of my own.

It has made a noticable different in 2nd gear upwards. (2nd is really noticable as is 6th gear)

If anyone wants to try this it's quite cheap too and all with commercially available parts:-
Pipercross Induction pipe (51mm) 24
38 mm Silicon Pipe (I/D) 20
Zip ties (in my toolbox)
Stanley knife (in my toolbox)
High Temp Adhesive 3
liquid soap (the pipe is a bit tight to get through)
335d MSport Coupe LCI:- 19" Apex EC-7's (8.5j ET35/9.5j ET33) Factory fitted Sunroof, BMW Perf Carbon Fibre:- Boot Spoiler, Mirrors & Front Lip Splitter, SSDD Carbon Fibre Rear Diffuser, Roof Spoiler, Black Kidney Grills, Red Calpiers, CKS Custom Exhaust, Wagner FMIC, ITG Air Filter, Sprint Booster, Quaife LSD, Weicher front & rear strut brace, Forge charge pipe
