Cold Air Intake?

Hello I am new to this forum, I am not sure if there is a thread of this up already I looked, not that hard, and did not find any but I was wondering where i can get a good cold air intake for a 2004 BMW 320i that adds good HP, and not to expensive. What intakes are best for performance for my veichle?
Thanks.

CAIs dont really make much HP if any but they do sound good. You can make your own, or get one off e-bay and put a good filter.

The standard e46 system is good.
it allready sucks up air from the front of the car.
only replace your standard filter with k&n, loose the cat converter, keep the oxygen sensors, get a branch if you can and go..
