Default Cold Air Intake

I need to pick up a new CAI kit. I updated my intake system and my old CAI won't fit the new 3.5" HFM. Turner sells the Afe kits which have a 3.5" adapter. How is the fit? I'm wondering if anyone has found a nice setup besides aFe. Not sure about the Dinan setup. Don't think it will fit a 3.5" HFM.
Thanks!
Joe

Looks good and the price is good as well. Did it come with a filter? Some pictures on Ebay are not resolving.

Dinan is another choice. Found the specs and it has a 3.5" tube. More expensive though.
Thanks!

Yeah, I had it on my 1998 M3 Sedan.... I wasn't overly impressed with it. Only reason i got it is because its CARB legal

I'd just go with a Dinan ( if you don't mind it sitting in the wheel well and the modifications you'll need to do) but if you are running Euro type headlights its gonna be a real tight fit but i think it still works

Euro Air box is always a good option .... don't get the cool sound though

I have the Jim Conforti carbon fiber from tms but I donít see it for sale any more. I also have the itg gc60/86. I donít think there is a much better filter in my opinion. Mine is tired and worn. Going to order another filter with oil. Benefit of living in the desert.


Iíve wondered on the afe comparison. Any info out there would be nice
