    Just purchased my first ever E36. It's an early 328i Sport. The previous owner has done the 'M50' inlet manifold swap and remap. He also fitted a cone filter, by the looks of it 2,000 years ago as it's looking rather tatty. I'm going to replace it and would rather get my hands on an OEM airbox...

    Hello I have got a question witch one is better stock airbox or K&N intake. When I bought the car it already had the k&n intake but one mechanic and BMW fanatic (he does drifting competitions also) said that stock airbox is better because there is more air and less dirt going into the engine. I...
