I don't think reasonable prices exist anymore for these. I should have bought 100's of them, would have been a better return than the stock market!

$200-$300 depending on condition. I know the prices went up for awhile...but each passing day these cars loose value and projects get abandoned. Insurance companies are canceling them out at 2k worth of damage...smh. I have faith there is someone selling there car, never used after purchase, or just needs quick cash!!!

^^^^ I don't think you will find one for $2-300 when they can be sold for double of that with ease

agreed. These go for upwards of $400. The BMW Performance Strut Brace is even more.

I hate that you cant find these anymore. Why the hell would the jack the price up so much? I would think it would be the most popular intake with actual proven gains on the dyno.

I think the only way you will find one for that price will not here on the forums......

Everyone knows what they are worth now, likely chance would be to see one pop up on Ebay.

Or, you could just buy my car, they're both included

Nope, I'm not that stupid. But have seen several dump sheets. All show 1-2hp. Not worth $700, not worth $300.

If you want it cause it looks cool and have money to waste go for it. It is just sad, that's all

I am surprised that a well-meaning guy like you offering such wisdom in your blog didn't even try using this - or at least drive one that has this - before calling those who own one or want to own one stupid.

Your favourite ride is a zhp right? Just check if anyone close to you has this performance intake and see if they would let you try it on yours. Or, if you are coming up to the NY/NJ area, give me heads-up. Once you do, I am highly confident that your joy on driving the car would increase, though it might or might not make it to your dump sheet.

After that, it is a question of whether you want to spend $100 or $600 or somewhere in between to get that joy.

OP - good luck!
