    hi Nick,

    I just fitted the 57i 2nd gen kit yesterday in my 320 then took it out on a lengthy road test across Scotland. Can completely vouch for the increased throttle response, the second you drop the right foot it begins to pull. Also, the car sounds completely normal below about 3000 revs, the grunts only come if you drop the foot heavily or fire further up the band.

    Enjoy

    Fitted mine today.

    The response has improved and the sound, well, worth buying just for that alone, once you hit the high revs it's gorgeous.

    Really happy with it, totally agree with you PMcD.

    Nick can you post up the dimensions of your filter please mate?

    I have my car in pieces again so I will be able to measure uo the filter that is used in the dave f kit so we can compare

    I know the Dave F filter is HUUUUUUUUUGE compared to the 57i one

    Hi,
    I didn't want to spent the earth on a 57iGen2 or a Dave F etc, as I agree the 328 is a bit slow to start with, but I did want the induction noise after formally owning an M3 with a Simota kit.
    I fitted a bespoke Drift Cone (biggest I could get) and pipework. The sound is great and their is a little more response. The most noticable increase in peformance is at 5K+ revs, it continues to pull hard to the red line where previously I had noticed the 5.2K peak bhp and drop off.
    I'd like to add a heat shield if I see one going cheap, but I mounted mine as low and close to the air source anyway so I doubt there would be a huge difference

    Very impressed with the difference for £70.

    I know HKS is designed for ricers, but have you seen the different size filters they do. Some of their mushroom filters are really big and your engine wouldnt have any issue with lack of air.
