Looking for Intake for my 318is, please help!

yes, I just recently purchased a 97' 318is, im having alot of complications looking for a intake for my car. They seem hard to come by. I recently purchsed a new Bosal exhuast system, it gets put in the 15th of this month. I would like to have a intake for my car so it has a extremely wonderful air flow..where do I get one? I have found one made by Toucan but I have never heard anything good about that company. Alot of times I think ive found one but its for a 318i rather then IS..does that make a difference? ahhh help me out somebody!?

Hey check out Ebay. I find them from time to time. I have a 96 318IS. How much did the exhaust cost you? I just spend about 2 grand in repairs. AHHHHH

If an intake works on a 318i, it also works on a 318is. Same thing. www.bavauto.com has a couple of intakes for your car.

agreed with the others...

all 318s have the same motor... meaning it will work for for both I, and IS...

just a word of advice.. and intake is not a noticable gain in HP... so my suggestion is to buy a cheap CAI in ebay, and change the air filter to a K&N...

www.velocityfactor.net. Carbonio CF intake. Will the Cosmos intake work with the 318?

i must say stick to K&Ns. its relatively cheap and will do the same job as other intakes meant for bimmers. hp gain is minimal with all intakes so cant go wrong with K&Ns. you'll love the reving sound once installed

I had the CAI from here, fitment was okay, had to cut a little of the piping down to get a perfect fitment. But for a true CAI (filter will sit nicely in the front bumper), not a bad price. Also had the filter swapped with a K&N

I would be scared of having my intake that low, one good splash from a puddle and you're screwed.

Well, I'm not looking for Big HP gains, I really just like the sound CAI makes when hitting the gas that deep intake sound is what I'm looking for. Could I just get a K&N filter for my stock intake?

Thumbs up

Last night, I installed a custom made intake. No, not very noticable for HP. Yes, sound is GREAT. Will keep you posted with any issues.

I found instructions on Brauzau Racing. Instructions were for an M3. Direct translation for my 328i. Not sure if it is the same for 318's.
