Cold air intake for 318ci n42

Hi, first time poster here.

Was just wondering if anyone knows of any full cold air induction kit for the n42 318Ci engine? K&N seem to only make them for the 1.9L 318 and not the 2.0L.

Cheers,
Jamie

I've just ordered a K&N 57i kit for my N42 318. eBay listing said it was for the 320 but as the 2.0l 318 was badged as a 320 in some countries I took a risk and ordered it.

I'll let you know how I get on.

Long story short; it doesn't fit. At all. I've managed to get mine in by fabricating a new pipe as it was too long, new adapters as they were too big/too small and also had to grind down the heat shield! Honestly, look elsewhere.

Sounds awesome though :lol:
