You will not bolt something on to the intake system and improve the performance - you will probably make it worse.
Thanks, I did not know this. Does that mean the CSL intake is a step backwards over the standard E46 unit?

From what I can gather the CSL system is reworking of the whole intake system, not a bolt on.

The focus was also on weight, so replacing metallic sections with carbon fibre is a sensible step. However, what we're talking about here is replacing a plastic component (already light, good acoustic properties) with a C.F. alternative (hard, poor material damping etc).

At first I have to construct connecting air duct and mountings. When it is ready I probably can offer complete set for sale.
