take the sonrkel from the kidney grille out. Then remove the two plastic round pieces inside the airbox. They should just pull out, but they might need dremeling

Debaffling your airbox....are you kidding me? This adds no power what-so-ever.

Easy partner....

As far as I know...similar gains can be had from a good drop-in (Green or K&N) as opposed to a CAI.

People also like a CAI because of the deep sound it helps create at higher RPMS...soooooo...that being said you can have a similar situation with substantially less mods with a good drop in and a debaffled airbox...im not saying the same...but probably similar...

so easy on the new guy....

Guys, keep it civil please.

It adds a sound and little if anything else. I can't justify a 100+ dollar intake, but I can justify 10 minutes of my time to take out the baffle.

I think that a Debaffle Mod and a K&N Filter are as good as a Fancy Pants CAI Kit in terms of Power and Sound - Prove me wrong!

PS. Thx for the Mod Link!

You should probably leave the snorkle to the front of the car so it will suck in some slightly colder air than from the inside.

I don't think the weight saved (a few grams) would outweigh the 1 degree cooler air :P

Sorry I don't have a better picture. It's dryer duct up to the airbox. There's also a second baffle inside of the airbox that I removed.

I just wondered why you all think that BMW or any other manufacturer will spend thousands of dollars/pounds/euros whatever, researching and developing a small piece of plastic?

If your never going to use your vehicles in the rain, fine. But if after 30minutes following traffic along a shitty wet autobahn you find a few days later your HWF MAF sensor decides to throw a wobbly because its covered in salt and poop from your previous modifications.....don't go running to get warranty cover! :nana

I have spent years in my job filming results from environmental wind tunnel testing in just these exact circumstances so your car won't breakdown when the MAF gets coated with dried up road dirt, please beleive me when I say there REALLY is a reason for these little odd shaped little bits of plastic that adorn our cars...honestly....because believe me, if we could save 15 cents on each vehicle by deleteing them at the factory.WE BLOODY WELL WOULD!!!! :lol:

This is not meant as a put down of your efforts to "improve" your cars, just a little information.

Best regards David
