Like I said, about 10hp. There has been a few different people that have posted dyno sheets with it.

Just seeing if anyone else has it and is happy with it. Going to be picking one up next week.

Just go for the Dinan and filter. Clean look and well worth the money. Air intakes are a hit and miss. Get the Dinan and be done with it. If you want to dress up the engine bay, get the technocraft products. I hanged the air scoops and went with the carbon Kevlar. Looks nice when light out and can see the Kevlar in the kidney grills. I have Ferrari yellow brembos by Dinan so trying to keep the yellow theme going.

What about Gruppe M? I had that intake on my last 2 M's. I think they look great and although the gains were next to none it was still a nice piece. Lol I may go this route again unless I buy another car.

I am all about simple now as I get older and have already won the car shows, magazines, had fun at track events, etc...

Just get a drop-in aftermarket filter and be done with it. $100, and all the real benefits of an aftermarket intake....sound and a few hp.

Getting closer to delivery (finally). Vessel is due into port tomorrow. Dealer ordered the MPE and made my first "investment" with IND. Hopefully around this time next week it will be in my garage.

painted reflectors
side grilles

For now, a limited modification. The grilles as it appears on this car http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=778077. I also like the rear spoiler with the painted trim.

I would like to a get a front lip as well. Kidneys will be installed by the dealer.

The vessel, TURANDOT, is now moored in NJ/NY. I suspect the final days before delivery will be long ones.
