Hi Guys,

I have purchased a 2015 F22 218D as my daily. I would like some induction noise - does anyone know if there is a performance intake available for the B47 engine?

It seems that Injen & MST only do them for petrol, I cant seem to find any at all for diesels.


Cheers,

Liam

They do not do them, The B47 does not want a cold air intake, its not healthy for the engine and makes the engine perform worse, just get a performance panel filter, my 118d is stage 2 and with a K&N panel filter, turbo noise and spool is ridiculous, you can hear the spool and the blow off.

All the K&N, et al, oil soaked foam filters do is allow a freer airflow. They DONOT actually filter the air half as well. A stock air filter will have many times the filtering capacity simply due to it's overall surface area of filtration, so for longevity is a much safer option. If you want intake noise you may as well just cut a hole in the airbox ...
