    Anyone bother putting a K&N induction kit filter on a e46 330i ?
    If so what did it alter apart from having some more induction noise? are they worth bothering with ?

    Cheers

    As good as they sound and look ive not ad good results with any 57i kit as it just draws warm air into the engine hence reducing power slightly when hot and sometimes irratic running. go for a panel filter or even better an enclosed induction.

    If you are using a cone it must have a heat shield or you will loose power.
    But even when shielded it won't give you any noticeable gains.
    They do make a nice noise though.

    uprated panel filter is best bet but won't make much power.

    Cheers chaps, I'm not bothered about any power gains, as it seems to have a fair bit of that, just a little bit on induction noise whould be nice, but not if it can cause problems in the future, this was the type of thing I was thinking of

    In our test on the dyno I've found the Simota induction kits worked the best on these e46 330i
