I have 'em, like 'em, they look really good. Not going to talk about HP because a flame war will follow.

Yea the RPi ones in red I don't buy aFe sh*t...most of their air intakes heat soak, and the scoops are knock off designs from RPi.

I have the RPI in red and i love them, they look great behind a matte black grill. Here are some pix of mine just to give you and idea of what it looks like. But do go with the RPI, can't go wrong.

i would say the filter proved to be worth the money.

the scoops look nice, sometimes its hard to even see them on my car.

but oh well. they are there and they are red so its nice.
