Hey guys,

I'm looking for an after market intake for my 1988 325is. I found a couple of basic kits but i was wondering does anyone have any recomendations?

there is of course the conforti setup which is expensive, the K&N typhoon seems to be solid too, has a decent heatshield and we know K&N makes good filters. i had one on mine and have on on my e36, they sound pretty good too.

See I've wanted to see a diy on how to make on for awhile. Its pretty cheap making one and lots of $$ buying one. Im just now sure how to go about it.

Do you have a link for where i could buy the K and N typhoon?

I found two fairly cheap kits.

the second one is bav autos own power flow intake kit.

Thoughts?

I know! something about the harmonics of CF is awesome.
the way I see it it wins on three fronts. cf is a terrible conductor of heat, so you don't need a heatshield like with an aluminium one=save weight
the looks are sick, the weave of carbonio is sickkk (its not pre-impreg like their high-end car intakes, but hey, doesn't bust the wallet)
and because its made locally, its not very expensive! compared to dinan, its much cheaper
