My Ride: 00` 328ci
2000 328ci Intake

I was searching the forum for an answer but came to no luck.
For my whooptie, a 2000 328ci, what do you think the best choice in intake systems is?

I'm looking in the $100-300$ range, and the K&N intake kit looks perfect.

What do you guys think? Is there anything better out there in my price range?

This has to be the most popular question on the forum... Just do a quick search, I promise you'll find what you need to know.

The stock airbox performs better than a short ram intake. If you want an intake, get a long tube. Has minimal gains unlike short ram intakes

If you want to mod a car like a Civic, buy a Civic.

You haven't seen his post about 12000k fogs. When the first things you ask about are purple fogs and CAI, you're quickly approaching a ricer mentality. Nothing wrong with a CAI, but so many damn people come on here and that's the first thing they ask about. Why? Because it's what you're SUPPOSED to do when you first get a car. Well, it is if that car is a Civic.

Plus I'm so gd tired of seeing this topic I could strangle someone.
