I'd be down.

Anything for the 39 M5?

EMPOWERD 02-12-2013 06:42 PM

Sorry. This is an end-of-production clearance. Only these two 3-series kits. Terry, maybe you can buy 2 and make them work with a few mods?

starbuck 02-12-2013 08:34 PM

I'm curious as to what model and year 3 series was used to arrive at those performance gains with this cai kit ?

No offence randy but that thing looks like a ebay product .. surprised you would put that in your car .. if you want it to go down then get the Dinan one.

If you want a decent intake go conforti or Afe

Ebay product?...cough..cough...looks like someone needs to see one in person.

The main issue, of course, is that these intakes are over 10 years old, since then every company in China has copied the design.

You couldn't be further from the truth Arek. Those "decent" intakes you claim are jokes (easily made by anyone with a sheet metal brake & local hardware store accessories). The R&D, quality and attention to detail of Carbonio products would be right at home with Pagani or Koenigsegg. I've been to their facilities (last week to pick up these intakes) and it's absolutely amazing what they produce. Nothing Chinese, I can assure you!

Click on this link and research the company further before throwing out speculations. http://www.carbonio.com/composites/

P.S. I'll never put anything Dinan on my car.

This is true, but i've priced these competitively to move. These are truly beautiful works-of-art for a very reasonable price.

lol...it's a pretty simple product, a smooth tube with a filter on the end. I don't see how putting a dinan logo on it makes it any better. For the money you can't beat this.

I have this exact intake on my 330ci. It sounds great. Increase in power? That one im not too sure about. Definitely improves throttle response though.

Arbioo 04-20-2013 06:02 PM

Hi, new to the BMW world... so guys whats the best approach?? You all have good ideas, I personally don't want to get a Dinan...

EMPOWERD where can I get it? do you have a store? ?? PM me please
