    been looking at this on ebay,
    BMW E36 Ram Air Induction Kit HKS Style 323 325 328 | eBay

    i know its cheap but would that really mean that its crap?

    if so what other kits could i go for that wouldnt cost a stupid amount of monies?

    i would prefer one with a heat sheild.

    Anyone selling one?

    no its this one
    K&N 57i GEN2 Induction Kit 57I-1000 BMW 323I E46 24V | eBay

    I bought mine for £120 about a year ago.

    there is no point is putting on a cheap kit without a heat shield or you will loose power and it will run rough.
    Get a good one or dont bother at all.

    I completely agree with mr sideways with regards to paying a little extra for high quality and a decent heat shield. I have the K&N Genii and it is brilliant in all respects of sound and helping the engine breath. If you dont want to spend too much which is understandable I would highly recommend a high quality panel filter and debaffle your air intake box ( DIY on this site somewhere of debaffle ) It wont give as much sound as a CAI but it will improve the intake and benefit your engine far more than the stock setup.

    Dave F is better-if you can find one similar to the gen2 but uses a massive filter

    I dont agree,
    For the money I think thats a good deal, the silicone pipe and the alloy bend would cost that if you bought them seperatly, you probably pay around a fiver for the filter, tbh thats probably all its worth, but you can upgrade when finances allow or whatever.
    You might find its a bit more responsive to throttle, you will have a much more sporty sound,you will need a heat shield before you will get any other gains.
