I definitely hear more intake noise around the 2.5-4k rpm mark. I did not notice any difference when I first tried them in 93 degree weather. When I really started to feel something slightly extra was there was at night. The reponse with the filter is slightly improved as well.

For what its worth, RPI says that since the M3 has a cone style filter the ram air effect is not as pronounced as the flat filters in the 335 and M5/M6. Don't expect as large of a gain, but it is a worthwhile one for the price.

Considering ASR couldn't deliver, RPI is the way to go and they will include install for the price.
I think you got your filter types mixed up. 335 have cones and M3 has the rectangular filter.

Either way, nice freaking find because I was about to pay $200 for a set. I owe Barry a beer
