I have the Dinan tube style. Many people say it's not worth the money and go for a GruppeM instead. I love mine though, has a small whistle when the throttle is open and has a deep sound to it.

Purchased a AFE Stg1 intake from EAS a few hours ago

What finally put me off of the GruppeM was the fact that a new filter is $200 + shipping&customs fees from Japan

He ordered through me!!! If you're curious about an intake here's one specifically for your car... I have the AFE intake on my 325ci and it works amazing...

Here's a link:
aFe S1 Cold Air Intake for e46 323, 325 & 328

If you have any questions let me know!

I've heard the AFE one is really good, and that's probably the intake I'll be going with.

I just bought a BenFer Performance intake. Should be here on Tuesday, but I'll have to wait until Friday to put it in when my car comes back from Inspection II. I have heard good things about this intake, but they are no longer in production, so I was happy to get my hot little hands on one.
