    hi guys

    brand new to this forum had a quick look around but couldnt find a up to date thread on what im going to ask about?

    ive had my car for around a year now and love it very muchly, but i wouldnt mind a bit more noise from the front end? (performance airfilter) maybe?

    just wondering of any suggestions? i know they make naff all difference to the overall BHP gains but a bit more of a grunt while putting the engine under stress would brighten up my day

    thanks in advance for any useful tips/links/suggestions

    Jon

    Whats the budget? If you want real throaty induction noise get a BMC CDA intake.. around 200 notes.

    You won't get much change in noise from a panel filter...

    I have a green cotton panel filter on my 325ti (same engine as your car), seems to pick up revs slightly easier but not really much of a change in noise..

    thanks for your responses yeah thats what im after something to give it some front end noise, the exhaust sounds awesome up the rev range but want some engine noise too

    K and N a no go? dont want to spark lights on my dash board and cause problems with the ECU and stuff...

    wasnt too sure what was on the market nowadays the last car i did up was my first which was a saxo and i wrecked it by messing with it when i was 17 haha

    now im older just wondered what was about and what type of thing i should go for

    oh and sorry, i dont really have a budget, whatever goes a nice sound is what im after mainly rather than performance (obviously dont want to drop power) but i know putting a airfilter on it wont exactly gain me any more hamsters

    I,ve put a K&N filter on my 325MSport..sounds really nice.. I,ve got no dash lights or anything on..I fitted the same to an earlier 323 Coupe I had for a good 2 years and that never had any dash lights on or affect the ECU..

    You,ll get a nice deep throaty roar with a BMC Filter as well..

    the problem with oiled filters is the oil can contaminate the MAF it's onlly a possibility but I would go with a foam one myself. ITG are the best of these.
