Between the two which one would you guys recommend? Personally I am thinking gruppeM because it is an easier installation and it is safer to drive in different types of weather.

What kind of performance can I expect out of the two intakes?

I thought about the Grouppe M, but read online that their is a recall on them, and they will no longer be distributed here in the states. There's a thread about around here somewhere.

I bought the Dinan instead. Love it.

I installed my Dinan CAI in about a half hour and the only reason it took that long is because I had to mount my horn elsewhere.

I believe if you don't cut into the brake duct when installing the Dinan styles you will experience the winter/fogging problems.

The horn was &@$& though. I wound up cutting out the mounting bracket so I could get the filter deep into the well.

Yeah, I think I'm gonna make a bracket to mount the horns underneath the CAI using the cruise control mount. I'll take pics when I get done...
