THE GOOD THINGS:
1.This is the first engine mod i have made and i love it simple.
2.It makes a sweet sound a low rumble @ low revs and @ high revs just sit back and grin.
3.I have noticed a difference in performance, with the old factory airbox and filter @ high revs and passing the car felt like it was pulling back (holding back) and didnt sound very good. But now she just goes and goes.
4. I think fuel economy might b better as there is hardly any air flow restriction and does not feel like the car has to work as hard.

THE BAD THING:
Its been about 2 weeks now and i have lost about 30 miles on a full tank, i just cant stop putting my foot down @ any chance (love the sound) hehe

i would recommend an induction kit to any1

Is that a cone style filter or did you replace the stock filter in the stock airbox with a K&N Filter? Did you remove your airbox and install your filter that way?

Good first try at a product review.

If I might offer some suggestions for all reviews:

You should have taken some before and after pics so everyone can see what you're talkin' about. Pic of the parts before they were installed would be good, too.

Any pics of the installation available?

How about a parts list, cost, how long it took and which vendor you purchased from.

You should prolly rewrite this product review and make it more complete along with pics.

See my review of the clear bra as IMO, an example of what's needed for the others members to get more details of what stuff we're using.

2004 E60 530is, Delivered 12/12/03, TiSilver/LGrey, PP, SP,PS, PDC, ACC, FRS, Step, Xenons, clear bra, body colored rear inserts. (Retired, 1983 henna red 320is)
