The GB is limited to 20 people. Only 5 are built a month.

As I'm only allowed to do one GB don't expect another one in Q4 or something.

Less resistance to the air entering the engine. The same way a MS Stage 2 or a Dinan intake make power. They both claim ~10hp which is the same thing Karbonius claims, so it is fully in line with known products.

Even a deaf person can hear the intake sound gains from the tiny Dinan CF elbow... now imagine the entire intake/airbox in CF...

The difference between those intakes and this one is a complete redesign with Karbonius that involves not only swapping a 6" part but starting from the ground up, working to maximize airflow in all components. The trumpets are different, the airbox volume is significantly larger, besides of course the elbow being upgraded too (which is the only thing MS and Dinan change).

I am sure this is going to work out like the E46M, where the CSL box on its own gives mild gains but it's the key to unlocking lots of HP. We will find out soon enough when I put the E90 M3 back together...

Man I'd love to do this group buy but it's a really bad time of year, quarterly taxes due! May have to sit this one out, but curious to see people's results. The gains aren't the selling point for me

Buying this for only the gains per dollar is silly imo. The appearance, sound, and exclusivity are what speak to me.

I agree. Regardless of the gains and even if it gains 0 I'll still get this for both cars

You gotta look at it like this... you're probably going to buy it anyways. If you buy it now, you save $600 as opposed to buying it later. Don't look at it like spending $2,300 now. Look it it like saving $600 later. Easily justifiable to save money.
That's how i talk myself into a lot of mods. Don't use logic, just mod math.

Do ya'll park your car at valet and then leave the hood open or something? What am I doing wrong in life? Please advise.

Can someone make a complete Karbonius carbon fiber sticker set for $20-30?

If it's the same effect, no performance gainz, I will save the caaaaash.

We can get appearance and exclusivity with a sticker group buy. Who's in!?

I think these are called 'man maths'

This is going to be the next big thing in modding these cars, the same way the CSL airboxes are in the E46 world.

To be honest I look forward to scaring people at the PCA tech line when they ask me to 'blip the throttle'

I already am popular because of how fat the PFC brake pads are

No, the slightly modified, AMG I overtake on my daily hillclmb will not bow before a sticker. They must be punished by the exclusive sound of roaring Karbonius at 6k - 8k rpm, every single day.
