I knew the BMW PI cost more than the euro airbox/K&N filter, but if one decides to shell out $400+ might as well spend $700 on a BMW PI, or be willing to get dirty and do the DIY second ram air intake. I doubt it is more pain to install a BMW PI than install a BMW PE though.

But back to the topic, unless the engine whine is so intolerable, otherwise we need to understand it is part of the excitement of driving a BMW. If one likes a quiet cabin and insolated from the road, should have gone with a Lexus or MB.
