As a new BMW owner, you may want to have a look at www.RealOEM.com which is a very useful parts database - not as good as your local friendly BMW dealer, but good all the same.

Your standard air intake should look a bit like this:

From this link: http://www.realoem.com/bmw/showparts.do?model=AT51&mospid=47649&btnr=13_0948&hg=13&fg=20&hl=1

Which in reality looks like this:


That's quite a bit different to the older E46's, so choose any replacement airbox accordingly - any replacement airbox would need to be from a 316i or 318i from 2002 onwards. How much of yours is missing then?

Hiya paddy2sure I think the full box is missing!

Eforty6 I took the air filter off and had a look it not the best it's a pipercross with the sponge on outside but part of the sponge has been ripped away to the idiot who stuck it on forcing it in to place! So it wouldn't be worth selling as it's prob not even worth a fiver now!
