I found one made by "dinan" but have never heard of them and its 350$, so seems like K&N would be a fine choice. I had a k&n on my old mustang and my friend got good results after installing one on his s2000, and no reliability problems. I would stick with K&N.

If you are really set on getting a CAI then I would go with either Cosmos racing or ECIS as they have good products and are a little less expensive.

I'm a fan of Conforti intake systems. You can find them at Turner Motorsport. I just installed one yesterday and the difference in engine performance is like night and day. The Conforti systems are slightly more expensive than most off the competition, but IMHO I think they are slightly better.

The fit and finish of the heat shield ensures that minimal heat gets to the air filter. The intake tube is also carbon fiber and it remains cool. The heat shield also doubles as a splash guard.

It should, I see no reason why it wouldn't. It works with mine.

I only ask because a lot of the CAI's I've been looking at say they won't with Xeons...I'd just assume that Xeons take up more space...

Yeah, I think the auto leveling system with the xenon lights is probably why. You could call Turner Motorsport and ask them. I'm sure they have an answer in regards to that question.
