DIYing Alpina Airbox-Mod

hello guys,

after driving almost 2500miles through south and west germany as my summer holiday, i found someone with the alpina airbox from a B3S, which im looking for a very long time, obviously without success.

i got pictures which showed that alpina just took the oem airbox and mounted a auxiliary snorkel onto it. WTF?!

So i took some modeling pipes, some fibreglass and some paint and epoxy and diyed my own "alpina airbox".

it costs around 50$ if you need to buy everything and it takes about 2-4hours, depending on your fabrication skills
