Sold: New RPi Intake Scoops - in Romania

BIMMERPOST / Classifieds
Asking Price:
None
Item Interest
I've got a set of new black RPi Ram Air Intake Scoops that I'm not going to install anymore.

I'm in Bucharest, Romania, so it's a local only thing. If anyone wants them, let me know.

UPDATE: I'm keeping them, another member convinced me. I just changed the title so people wouldn't be misled that they're for sale.

I don't think I'll be going over 70mph all that often to benefit from the HP gain. Someone who will be going fast could benefit from them. I rarely drive out of the city where I could unwind it more. I hadn't bought anything for the car in a while and it seemed like a good idea at the time. Now I have some CF bits to keep me entertained for a while.

You'll feel it even from 40 mph.. It increases your torque much more then horsepower.. I wouldn't sell it if I were you.

The faster you go, the more power you have..

Try it before you sell it.

I guess I will keep it and try it, I guess I wasn't convinced before.
