Does anyone else have any other ideas/suggestions?

While I am going to consider a dry air filter, it was posted that it won't increase noise under light loads, so that's probably not going to add much (or any) noise under light load.

Any other suggestions? Thanks for everyone's help and Happy Thanksgiving!

Modifying your exhaust is no different, as anything you do outside the dealership can be interpreted as a threat to your warranty. I haven't seen a dealer raise an eyebrow at the MS intake yet. To think that an enthusiast will not mod his/her M3 is unrealistic, so there has to be some leeway.

Dealers are not evil people and looking to void warranties at any possible opportunity. Remember, they still need to keep customers happy in order to sell cars - especially with the new M3 just around the corner.
