New thread, because the old title was a little misleading.

Made for 330s with 3.5" MAF, but comes with original DINAN shrouds to fit the 3.0" ones on all other non-M e46s (323, 325, 328, all of them as far as I know!)

No air filter though. Any generic 3.5" K&N cone will do. But as you can see, everything is in niiice condition...

$425!!!

Time for a price drop. $400 for a CF intake in grrreat condition... No cracks or anything like that.

Comes with the original box too, if that's the type of thing that floats your boat ;D

It's the carbon fiber version that isn't made anymore. All the later ones were made of aluminum. Dinan retailed these for over $700.

The filter you replace when it gets dirty beyond cleaning... Any 3.5" K&N cone filter will do - even a 3.5" generic one ;D

Hahaha... Who told you that? Steve Dinan? The replacement intakes they sale are actually relabeled K&N filters... To be more specific... the K&N RU-5114 is what people get as a replacement when they don't want to be raped by Dinan. All it is is a simple cone air filter with a 3.5" opening, as I said before.

Isn't made any more because there was a huge problem with them. The carbon fiber version was discontinued because it would crack under the extreme under-hood temperatures..
