"You gotta fix the nut behind the wheel before you fix the bolts on the car"
not sure what your talkin about cause it dont go the the exact page but.... i think i know what your talkin about and its a rip off. I just orderd this off of ebay for 40 bucks and its the same thing u get for 100
yea i was think about getting the Intake for bavauto, but 119.00 dollars is alot i wanted to see it befor i got it since i dont live to far away from there location, but if what schneider252 says is true then why not sace 50 bucks. tell how it was schneider when you get your package.
rgr that, Fox told me personally that its not worth it.... your pretty much payin like 50 bucks just for a tube i think, All u need is the adapter and filter and its 43 bucks on ebay!
Im not sure about heatheads tho
even if you do notice a slight difference with cone filters, it's not enough to give your car the edge over another car with comprable performance. you should also be prepared to lose some hp in traffic
I got a 1991 318i...was jsut wondering for the intake kit on ebay u just take off the big ass air filter box and replace it with the new one right...with that adapter. for anyone who has done this...is it a bitch to do or what?
and does the Intake give off a deeper sound, or what ?
those things are a rip off. Like i said a while back, the only thing you should do with modifying your intake is getting a K&N air filter. You will practically get the same gains as that of the cone filter you are talking about and the sound will be a little louder than stock. The other option is doing a MAF or AFM conversion. Other than those two options, you shouldn't go put your money anywhere else.
But hey, if you want to go for the looks and sound, then by all means go for it. I just dont think that 110 dollars will get u nowhere fast.
IMO, those cone filters don't look good in our engine bays to begin with. They belong more on Hondas and japanese imports.
