I opened the airbox yesterday and saw the massive airfilter. You said the air and charcoal filter are one piece. Is that why the filter was so thick?

Helene Performance is working on something for the M3.

Their streamline filters are some of the best.

There's not much that can be improved on the stock airbox - just filtration.

I looked, but could find nothing. I am hoping ITG will develop one soon!
