I drove into 6 - 8 inches of water the other day. Even my brakes stopped working when I was in there. But my engine still runs like a champ

My Ride: TopazBlu 325I
My cars intake is in the bumper although worst case scenario. If i had to run in that deep of water i simply pop the hood open and have 3 ports on my intake within the engine bay that allow air to flow inside the intake through the top.
