holy craaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaap
wow !!@# !@# !@ !@ #
removing this was probally the best thing i have ever done..
all 3 series have a baffle of some sort.
it sounds like a CAI the good thing is it only roarrrs at 3 1/2 rpm and higher.
wwwwwwwwwwwwooooooooooooooowwwwwwwwwwwwww
it adds like 1-2hp i heard.

yeah, removing it makes the air box much less restrictive. Its not unheard of for that part to be rmeoved a small tube run down out the bottom of the box to pick up even more air. There's link I have at home detailing how to do it on a z3 airbox.

It looks like a missle or a bomb. My 318 doesn't have that in the airbox, it probably comes "debaffled"

I hate bringing up an old thread but I decided to do this to mine for the hell of it. Problem is, my airbox seems to be epoxied shut and I can't get the little bugger out. I guess I'll just crush it and take out the pieces

I believe that baffle is intended to reduce engine noise. I've got a '95 318ic and I removed it by pulling the whole box and replacing it with a heat shield from East Coast Induction Systems and a cone filter.

The engine revs a lot freer and the acceleration is a bit quicker, but the car is louder.

uhm, Nothing? The baffle just reduces the intake noise from the engine and also restricts the airflow just a little bit. It's encased in the airfilter box.

If you have a CAI in the brake duct, your probably going to ingest some water and stall\mess stuff up.

if you have the filter propperly oiled, you wont face any issues if you splash a puddle. As we all know, oil and water don't mix. Ergo, a well-oiled filter wont allow water in.

Now, if it get submerged, thats another story.
