Macht Shnell in Aus

Hey guys,

Quick question, if I'm after a MS stage 2 intake in Australia is there anywhere I can buy it without having to ship it from the US?

Thanks

There is no MS Distributor here, closest MS Distributor is EAS in California. I know Andrew a Southern BM was experimenting with CAI but don't know where he ended up.

I recently sold a Stage 2 MS CAI and ended up shipping it back to a buyer in USA, as it didn't sell here. Proportionality CAI on an M3 is very expensive and has questionable gains as the stock intake takes a lot of beating in it's design. I had the MS Stage 2 on and off again a few times and did not really notice much of a difference in performance from stock.

There are other brands but good fitting can be an issue and cost can go way over the top for the marginal gains.

You will get a much more substantial gain in power with a full exhaust system and /or a tune.

We suggest a BMC drop-in filter over all these cold air intakes which as mentioned by Dave, show no gains. You'll be happy with the drop-in and have money to spend on other more worthwhile mods.
