Okay I've got about $400 Somthing Saved up, maybe by next month I'll have around $600 - $700

I wanted to buy a new Intake.

I can't decide between the GruppeM Intake for my car or the Dinan CAI with software.

Could someone list me the benefits of the GruppeM over the Dinan and vice versa for the Dinan < GruppeM.

Just need a little knowledge and inscentive to know what to go with.

GruppeM has a significant power though. Plus their quality is GREAT.




[Edit]

... Wow thanks for the help everyone

why would you wanna pay $600 on a intake i dont see whats so great about them. the power gain is marginal, and if you want your car to sound cool then you could put the money towards an exhaust

Agreed.... Why the hell would you drop $600 for a gruppe M intake?

well it is your decision but i think you should give the idea some time to settle, like a month or so just so you can be absolutely sure. i recently saw a gruppeM intake up close (check out my concours thread in 'showroom') and it looked awesome, so if thats what you want then i'd say its a good choice. although i'm still confused on how a simple product that doesnt yield alot of gain can be priced so high
