    maybe be a simple answer but i cant seem to find it. is the 325/328/330 airbox bigger than the 323 one and does it bolt straight in? looking at a mates 330, he had a bigger airbox but the fixings look the same to bolt it down. also looked bigger in a 2002 323. ( mines a 2000 323ci) as im guessin bigger airbox, + bigger panel filter will make a difference? cheers in advance for your advice =]

    330i is the biggest, it will bolt on, but the bolt holes for the throttle are slightly different, so an adaptor plate is required.

    thanks for the quick response. i was on about the airbox tho where the panel filter sits, not the intake manifold =]. ill only be upgrading the the 325 one for that later.

    what i meant was mine currently looks like this

    and the 330 i saw and newer 323 had this airbox
    ES-SC-115-15.jpg

    just want to know if its actually bigger and will the bigger one in the second picture fit mine which looks like the top pic. or is it gunna be trial and error. thanks

    Ah, the air filter housing..

    That's unlikely to fit, and probably wouldn't make a difference anyway.
