What part out?! LOL!! BMW Performance Intake

Well it had been 6 months since I upgraded my shocks and I obviously couldn't leave well enough alone.
Looking back on the track that I've taken with this car, I really wish I had gone with more OEM BMW Performance parts. There's just something about OEM that I love. With that said, the Bimmer got her Christmas present a little early this year...
BMW Performance Air Intake...the carbon fiber cover is absolutely gorgeous..it's really too bad this piece isn't visible all the time..

I would wait for the first year to run its course, knowing bmw they will add something different for the 2013 F30 which will make the 2012 owners rather upset :P

Haha, I know...OEM is expensive! Truthfully not a huge difference although it does pull harder in the higher RPM range - can feel it a bit when passing on the highway. My exhaust drowns out any sound goodness from the intake
