M3 Intake Options

Is there a dedicated thread for intake options available to e9X m3 owners?

If not, I'd love to see some options posted in this thread. Besides the AFE filter, and the exorbitantly expensive GruppeM, what are my options?

For those that have installed intakes, what are your observations regarding Fuel Economy, Sound, Performance Gain (if any)?

Other than changing the air filter to the AFE one, and the Gruppe M intake, i think your only other option are intake scoops such as the RPi scoops. I think that the AFE filter with some scoops will be your best and most cost-worth option. The stock m3 airbox was designed very well from the factory.
