??? WTF? Looks like it will suck more hot air. At least the stocker is sealed off from the engine compartment air. I dont get it....guess I will await some details. I dont think they would do something like this without a benefit.....

Edit: Maybe it has an E-Ram built into it! (you have to be an M3 old-timer to get that one)

I remember, it was also called the $300 paperweight.



The stock M3 airbox flows very well, I doubt we'll be seeing any improvements in flow other than that the included filter can contribute.

Just like every AFE intake for bimmers.

Hot air intake.

I have seen these intakes lose power on dynos. The 5-series community had a mutiny on AFE, demanding their money back.

Maybe it is just the finish... but for me it would have to look more um.... like it belongs. Gains is another.

I don't know about anyone else, but I HATE teasers. What is it and what are the hp numbers? I don't care about how it looks if the gains are promising. It's not like I'm doing laps with the hood off.

It looks like some deranged exhaust hood for a kitchen range. Both serve the same function: to pull in hot air.

but thats the thing, there probably isn't any gains...and on top of that it looks like that?

I agree, if it makes power, I dont care how it looks ...but that shit looks out of place!!!
