best is stock... the rest is a just burning $$$. unless you're going for the sound, which is still not worth the $250+

For good gains, amazing sound and quality product, check out this GB link (http://www.maxbimmer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=155783) for a Carbonio Intake System.

^^ Yes Carbonio or any other Old Dinan style intakes (long tube) will make most power out of all intakes. But If you need a good all year, no worry and maintenance free intake then keep your OEM intake or buy a BMW Performance one.

Why do you need an intake anyway? Is your car feeling slow? Update your ECU and clear the adaptation. It will make your car much faster then it is now. If you feel that you need some more hp, then headers is the only way to get some. Other mods are primarily cosmetic , that is if you dont want to go into big dollar mods

Anyone who has INPA or Gt1. Any BMW enthusiast, BMW shop or your local dealer.

I can do it if you wish but you'd have to buy me pizza. I like pepperoni ...

I wouldn't go for any intake that doesn't use the original filter.
Those foam filters just filter less, so you gain 1 hp maybe, but dirt gets in your engine and wears it out and causes MAF problems. Then you loose more than 1 hp.

i've had my carbonio in my car for about 3 weeks now... And all i can say damn.. Its worth the money and the power... Gave it more torque and hp... Sounds great ...

K&n is always good. I did it, didn't really change anything. I don't think I would do it again. Save the cash. But it does sounds nice.

Stock is best. BMW knows what they're doing. *th-up*

Aftermarket is okay if you want some extra sound.

unless you are looking for issues with your MAF, id stick to OE

Agreed.

I've had intakes on E36's (they came with them), and it was just issues. Save your money for something more worth while, i.e. suspension work. Stock is best.
