    Hi everyone,this is my first post on any kind of forum! Ive got a 2001 540iA sport and would like to know the pros and cons of fitting a CAI over a performance panel filter. Im also looking at getting de-cat pipes and a stainless exhaust system with a re-map. Any advice would be greatly appreciated,cheers.

    do the remap last to take advantage of the later mods and the cheapest i.e panel filter first only use a foam panel filter as the oiled ones can damage the maf (itg filters work well) I pressume CAI is custom air intake i don't know a lot about these for your car but they are a lot more money than a panel filter and don't give huge gains again go itg if they do one. Be careful who you go to for the exhaust there are a lot of cowboys out there who will fit a drainpipe to your car making it sound awful and actually lose you power.
