I'm looking to put a cold air intake in my 328i. Something nice and sounds clean. Anyone have any links or suggestions?

Thanks,

yes, I have the cosmosracing one and it matches the rest of the underhood parts nicely. It has a good clean growl starting around 1/4 throttle. You have to relocate the horns tho. This will need to be done with any CAI, however.

Hamfisted is on a distinguished road
The one from UmNitza is good or the Cosmo Racing one with the heat shield.






UmNitza Cool Air Intake $239







Here's a Cosmo Racing CAI with heat shield on Ebay for about $150, good price.
Cosmo Racing CAI w/heatshield on Ebay







Either one of them with the heat shield would be great. Just be careful not to run through deep water or heavy rain where water might get injested into the motor. There is a water bypass adapter to install to help prevent that.



AEM Water ByPass Valve

I'm confused why do you need an AEM bypass valve?

One thing to remember, if you do not enclose that filter, or get it out of the engine compartment you are still inhaling hot air and hot air does not make horsepower.

means that the "cia" aka cold air intake setups , normally dont come with a water bypass valve and since most cia s are closer to the ground
or lower than the stock level if you run into a puddle of water then water goes into the engine via the cia ,hidrolocking your engine and the
water bypass valve prevents that by sucking air trough the minifilter instead of sucking water as water is heavy .

I think it goes inbetween the engine end of the cold air intake and the throttle body.
