Very nice indeed. I really love how the intake looks in the engine bay. Just beautiful.

does the factory CAI have an intake in the front fascia or is that a GruppeM only feature?

Other than weight saving of the CF, the setup looks the same like the OEM. Does one think there will be a significant gain in HP or more just for sound?

Thats got to be one of the best factory engineered intakes I have ever seen. Normally car manufacturers say "How can we fit an intake around this engine?", but the M3's design seems to include the intake as an integral part of the engine. I wish I had an intake this good on my Cooper S, I'd make like 20 more hp.

yes, water will flow into the intake. but the design is such that the water will just flow out through the bottom hollow. the central "box" (where the bonnet intake is) is connected to a separate grill intake and and front scoop intake. the three pieces are loosely fitted to one another with a rather large gap at the bottom where the water will flow out.

i don't anticipate any problems with this cos the OEM one is designed in a similar fashion.

Hey everyone, I'm not sure what happened, but I had made a post about the exhaust system and intake a few weeks back. You guys are pretty much paying retail for the system. I am direct with Gruppe-M and have been an authorized dealer for years. Please PM if you want pricing on either the intake or exhaust. I just don't want to see you guys pay retail for something that can be had for cheaper. Thanks.
