dinan cold air intake differences

Hi,

I was wondering on dinan's website www.dinanbmw.com what is the difference between a 1992-1995 325 and M3 cold air intake and a 1996-1998 328 and M3 cold air intake.

The part numbers differ that is:

D760-0320A for 1992-1995 325 and m3
D760-0321A for 1996-1998 328 and m3

I'm assuming this may have something to do with OBDII switch on 1996's but anyone here can confirm the difference? can i buy a 1992-1995 dinan cai and get it to fit and not have any issues?

Nick.

tomctx is an unknown quantity at this point
The early cars have a temp sensor in the airbox that the later ones don't have. But that is just a guess. If you order the one for your year, it should fit without any problems.

I can certainly appreciate your desire to save money; these are expensive toys we have...Tomctx is right, 92-95 has a temp sensor so your CAI will have a hole in the side of it to accomodate the sensor. If I were the cheap bastard that I am, I would buy the less expensive CAI, go to the local recycler and get a temp sensor (doesn't matter if it works or not, you're just using it as a "plug") and plug the hole with what was meant to go there.

Or use the Handyman's secret weapon, "duct tape".
