    Just wondering what people would recommend as far as a high flow air filter goes for my 325ti?

    Green? K&N? Pipercross? BMC??

    The green jobbies seem to be very hihly rated - if I ever get round to it, that's what I'll be popping in mine. Going to need a new set of rear boots first though...and its not too long until my Inspection II (dreading that one in a big way).

    green cotton mate, used in all rally cars and are the best imo, you will have to order and wait 2 weeks

    if your after more power then you will be better of with a remap

    BMC CDA in my opinion, i used it on my previous car and it was fantastic, cant use it on my 318iS though as theres not enough room to fit it !!!!

    and you have to love the carbon that the airbox is made of

    I'm thinking just high flow panel filter for now because I can't afford the BMC CDA enclosed intake I want, will be getting one next summer when I've got more cash though!

    I had a green filter in my 316ti and was happy with it so will probably get another one..

    x5nut.. since when have N/A engines responded well to re-maps??
