Like 93 said Cosmo is about the cheapest. A few people on the forum have them. I have a K&N I haven't installed yet. They are more money, but the cheapest of the ones I looked at. I wanted one like the ECIS intake, with the heat shield, not one that runs down behind the lights, like the Cosmo. Just personal preference.

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.

I wouldn't use that filter on my car. That seems to be nohting but trouble right there. I just got the K&N myself. Installing it today. I plan to make my own heatsheild or buy the ECIS sheild for $85

cosmos racing is the cheapest and best bang for the buck. Don't go below that or you'll be sorry.

OK this is getting bad......There is a cosmoS and a cosmo. Both have them for BMW who knows which one is better if either. I personally think the cosmoracing.com(cosmo not cosmos) site looks a little more legit, but who knows. Just bugs me that they are so close and people get confused easily by them(damn those companies both).

I want the ECIS intake. Although the Conforti and Dinan look good too. Those are going to start at like $250 and go up from there. I just don't trust the cosmo/cosmos ones. No matter who has them the sites look ricer and I equate that to junk. Do some research on the forums and you should find alot of info and testimonials. Rooz has one I can't remember if Cosmos or cosmo, but he hasn't been on in a while. Also check out the reviews section and you can find a couple of reviews.

cosmos racing one is better by far. Jerry is a great guy who owns it. It's 3.5" intake too which is Dinan specs where as most are 3.0". COSMOS RACING is what you want for around 130 bones
