318i air intake question

to anyone who can help...

I recently purchased a 2004 318i. I'm trying to find an aftermarket CAI or SRI for it but its confusing because most websites don't have the "2004 318i" option so if anyone could help me with what other model runs the same 1.995L motor that would be a great reference for in the future! Thanks!

Make your own CAI. Just buy the piping and filter

Take a look.




The problem is, we don't have that car in America.

I've own the same bimmer as you do ~ 2004 318i 2.0l, the factory air filter is already mushroom type with induction pipe, try K&N, they do a direct replacement filer.
