    Hi there, im after some feedback on aftermarket induction kits for the e39 528? Have you got one on your car, or had one ? Which one to go for etc,,, I believe that the filters that use the oil to stop the dirty bits are a big NO NO, as they play havoc with the MAF's, so just after some info about whats hot and whats not. Oh and not to expensive either

    You should either look at a BMC carbon dynamic airbox or else a Dave-F induction kit. Either of these will give you a pinch of extra performance along with a humble growl at low rpm and a big bellow when you give it some stick

    Oiled element air filters only play havoc with some Japanese car MAF's causing dips in performance and erratic idling. BMW's won't have this reaction

    As electric has said and a couple of others... Gruppe M and Simota.
    Had a gruppe on the E36 and made a slight improvement aswell as a nice throaty roar

    I fitted a K&N57i genii CAI to my e36 323i and can honestly say that it improved a little bit, it definetly didnt make it any worse.

    Interresting.

    I spoke with a seller of induction kits who told me it would increase fuel consumption.

    How much of an inprovement did you get ?

    interesting i allways thought due to the increased amount of air flow the maf would adjust the fuel to match, i.e more air = more fuel?????

    i think that is the general idea, i dont believe any1 that says their car is better on fuel 'after' fitting an induction kit, more air more fuel like you say.

    It will be exactly the same on fuel if driven in exactly the same manner.

    The reason economy drops is because of the addictive intake roar which owners will be making the most of.
