if that mod really worked, wouldnt you think you would see more of them out there? its a gimmick, and your not gonna get any increase that a CAI wouldnt produce.

its so cheesy , dont do it.

Second vote on the cheesy. For that amount of money, there are many other things you could buy.

1995 325I, window tint, K&N, debaffled airbox, BMW #104 wheels, Nighthawk low beams, smoked side markers, smoked corners, smoked taillights, M3 stlye heated mirrors, various interior bits, Bosal cat-back.

Its a scam...

That thing is rediculous !

If it worked reliably the auto makers would have done it 20 years ago. If you look at that Ebayer's feedback he hasn't even sold ONE yet. Looks like he just spliced it together with a bunch of Ebay leftover parts. You'd be better off with a Nitrous kit.

I have one of those things and I swear by it, the minute I put it on my 318 I immediately could smoke vipers, corvettes, ferraris, even a Yamaha r1 crotch rocket. It's literally the difference between night and day. It makes it so dead balls fast I couldn't imagine why nobody else would have it. Also, it makes your car run for 2 million miles without any wear. It takes any problem your car might have and immediately fixes it. I had a problem with my cigarette lighter fuse and it fixed it for me. It's not just an electric supercharger. It's an on-board mechanic you have available 24/7 without having to wait in those tedious lines! Its an investment that is well worth investing in. It's the best product on the market for the best car on the market. Don't delay, buy your electronic supercharger TODAY! while supplies last. I am serious it makes your car haul so much ass you wont have an ass anymore. It is the best thing ever made. Dude, get it GET IT! GET IT ! GET IT! GET IT! jk

I also failed to mention two things about the wonderful electric supercharger. It gives you 100 miles per gallon so I only have to fill her up once every 6 weeks or so. Also, it has an element that makes your car faster the harder you drive it. The best analogy I can put it in is that it's like when a human being does a rigourous work-out, they get more muscle. It's basically the same. ha ha ha, jk again

I believed you, up until you said, "R1".

well just because someone puts the word "jk" doesnt mean that they are in fact "just kidding" it could mean "joy kicks" or something so i guess you will just have to buy an electric supercharger and see for yourself how good it is. I am serious, my car is one of the fastest in the world now because I put on my trusty electric supercharger. I wonder what the dude who is selling it would think if he saw all of you vicious people bashing his product that REALLY works. Well I hope you all will find out eventually how good of a product it is.
