i couldnt post the link so il try to put the info here

When the folks at BMW engineer a car, they cannot focus exclusively on performance. They must take several other factors into consideration, including noise levels and serviceability, and often end up compromising on power output. The air intake system is no exception. In order to keep the engine quiet enough to satisfy the average customer BMW encases the air filter in a plastic housing. This housing restricts the amount of air that can flow through the filter, resulting in a quieter intake but a frustrated engine It's like an Olympic runner being forced to breath through a straw. Let your BMW Breath! Replacing the stock air filter assembly with our Power Flow kit allows more air to enter your BMW's engine so it can breathe as deeply as it wants. The Power Flow kit consists of a cone-shaped K&N filter, the filter mount, a bracket and all necessary hardware.

does anyone know if this product is hard to install, and its says it will make your engine louder how much louder does it uasly get?

thanks

don't bother with those intakes. If you're considering about changing your intake just get a K&N filter and that's it. The other option is doing a MAF conversion.

you copuld if you wanted too i suppose... it's just as easy to go to your local NAPA and pick a K&N and slap it on... probably cheaper too... thats all i did... plus, that looks like it would just suck hot engine air into the intake... i don't know about other cars... but mine likes cold air...

if you get a cone, make sure you get the heatshield. If you really want to make the most out of an intake mod. Learn about how air flows through your car. I'm planning to mesh out my high beam, or make mod to the grill. Sorry i keep most of my mods to myself and my other euro tuners i work with.

but i put up and answer the common stuff we all do and know
Look up the heatshield and cone air filter.

yeah... so thats all good and fine... my cone filter does just fine, I made a heat shield, and made an intake tube out of drier tubing, it runs front the front of my car on the bottom left by the foglight into my heatshield/air box (it's just some pretty thin steel I welded into a box) through the cone/ MAF and viola! cherry intake.
