Do you think a K&N air filter is good mod for a bmw? Cuz i heard it could add 10 hp to some cars.

your better off getting a CAI because your stock airbox is too restrictive, but if your low on cash, itll give you a little added punch...with just a filter, id say 5-7hpp....CAI is around 10 or so

with a CAI, you remove the airbox, but the cone shaped filter at the end of the CAI, could be a K&N

i fitted a ram air filter on mine.......

the more cold air you can get in, the more fuel the ECU puts out= MORE POWER!
