and for the record, i dont plan on putting an intake in my car
I feel no offense (only a little patronized at times, but hey, I can be like that as well so, so what...) and I hope I have offended noone.

Therfore: Cheers:

Opinion or fact?

Do you subscribe to the opinion that you cannot - absolutely, no way, impossible - improve on a BMW's performance? Or did you install a CAI and have dyno graphs of before and after?

Some CAI manufacturers actually did test their products and provide said graphs.

I don't mean to sound sarcastic but I am beginning to hate the level of misinformation floating around this forum. If you have numbers, post them!

03 330 ZHP
That is a fact, plain and simple. Where is the intake going to draw cool air from? Within the icy cool engine bay?

Intakes offer you 1HP, if even that and rob low end torque. You’re best off Just keeping the stock unit and modding your exhaust instead.
