    I have been look a quite a few bmw forums to look for mods on my e46 328i, as far as i can make out the e36 and e46 328i are very similar but was wondering if the inlet filter system was the same as i have seen people saying that they is a restrictor in the air filter box on the e36 is the the same on the e46 if so what does this restrictor look like?????

    Removing the restrictor does nothing except for make the exhaust louder AFAIK...not real HP gain whatsoever.........
