I've been looking around for air scoops for my '14 650xi, but can't seem to find any for the model. Does anyone have any suggestions?

To make RAM Air intake scoops effective, one would first have to remove turbocharger(s) and revert to Normal Aspiration. Chargers are more effective than RAM Air intake scoops.

From the Wikipedia: ***8220;The ram-air intake works by reducing the intake air velocity by increasing the cross-sectional area of the intake ducting. When gas velocity goes down the dynamic pressure is reduced, while the static pressure is increased. The increased static pressure in the plenum chamber has a positive effect on engine power, both because of the pressure itself and the increased air density that this higher pressure gives.***8221;
