    Simota. They're double the price of K&N crap though.

    As you have an E46 I would say neither as your standard airbox is about as good as it gets...still if you want it for the noise then get a Simota-expensive but better than the K&N

    According to Simota their kits can achieve a power increase of around 10 BHP..........Apparently.

    Very highly doubtful on an E46-maybe on an E36 but you would more likely get 2-3hp on an E46..still you would need to test it to know for sure

    Just installed a pipercross one on mine yesterday. Seems a little more 'perky' with a little bit of a growl in the higher rev range but nothing special.
