Intake systems

What is the best intake system for horsepower gain and overall upgrade? What about the BMW performance one? Is it any good compared tonafter market ones?

Not sure about the BMW one but I had my tuner recommend just to get a drop in filter and nothing more, I bought the Mach Schnell Stage 1 kit from EAS. Seems that everything else is just money out the pocket.
