cold air intake for my 95' 318is

Need some info on a brand of cold air I should invest in. If anybody could suggest a particular way to go and why that would help me out considerably.

Thanks,

The K&N FPIK or something like that is a good investment. Comes with a heatshield etc. Dinan are good but expensive. There are tons of others, use the search feature to find some more.

I've heard some guys over at E46fanantics say to stay away from the cotton/oiled CAI, because the oil will mess up the MAF. Try going with a foam CAI instead. AFE is agood brand.

Agreed.......AFE does have the non oil type filter, it is called Pro Dry S, but I have searched for his 95 318 & came up empty. I have the AFE CAI w/Pro Dry S filter & never had a problem with the MAF sensor......
I am sure there are other Brands of CAI's with non oil type filters out there....

I think the main issue with the MAF is usually if you OVER oil your filter. I'm new to the whole concept myself, but so far no problems.
I consulted with a friend of mine who is ASE certified. He told me the very same. Clean it well, and don't over oil it and you shouldn't have any issues.

Agreed also, I had the oil type for about 6 months prior to the dry type, washed & oiled it lightly & no problems either........

I am not sure what intakes are available for a 318. They are different to the I-6 based ones that will work on a lot of models.
