My two questions are

1.Looking at the AFE intake a few pages back, it looks like the filter from afe is actually less surface area than the stock filter or other drop ins? Is it just the picture or is that the design?

2.How does driving the car stock or back to NA compare to the boosted car you have? Obvoiusly pure speed I understand but does it still feel pretty strong or is it really boring now?
1. the filter is smaller then most drop ins not to much though,
2. i sold the boosted one, but its different, the ess kit still makes the car feel stock, just alot faster, if you didnt know there was a supercharger you would just think its a really fast m3.
on that note, i miss the power and will be going with a 575 sometime soon,

note on the wheels, the way things fell into place yesterday and the deal i got on them, i couldnt turn it down, come spring the entire car should be done and wheels resprayed, but no point now with all the gravel on the ground in ny
