Does anyone know about the "Benfer" brand CAI? They seem to be reasonably priced for my 99 323i. Not sure I want to step into a Dinan, or a more costly intake right now. I didn't know if anyone has one, and could tell me about the reliability of them. I checked around, and see that it yields approx. 7 to 10 HP for this price range of intakes. I have seen a lot of them on ebay, and wondered if this was an unpopular brand...any help would be appreciated.

i dont have any experience with benfer, but from all the people that I know, not many complaints on benfer.

for e46 intakes, benfer, dinan, ECIS, gruppeM are top notch and are the way to go.

benfer should be a great brand. its exactly the same as dinan except that its not carbon fiber, which wouldnt make a huge difference. they dont cost much at all for what you get

Thanks guys, for your responses. Yeah, the carbon fiber wouldn't make that much of a difference to me. I noticed that most of the benfers that I saw said "Dinan-like" and it appeared to be about the same as far as the bends go compared to the Dinan. For the money it sounds like a good choice. Thanks again!
