Jamie, if you look at the picture above that @Bimmers posted, you can see the filter sits just below the framerail and extends down maybe 8-10 inches. You should be able to eyeball how low it will sit. I personally wouldn't run one if you're going to be going through deep puddles, but it will take about 10 minutes to swap it out before winter if you really want

One tip I would give to potential buyers is to check if your headlights have the leveling motors. I bought one of these intakes used and got home and looked down and said DOH!!

Thanks... Looks like it would be easy enough to just swap the stock box on at the same time I throw on the hard top and winter wheels, and switch back when the top comes off and summer shoes go back on... I live on a poorly maintained section of dirt road, so winter can see me in fairly deep snow or slush or with slight washouts to traverse to get to pavement. (the sacrifices of living beachfront... I'll tough it out;-) )

I'll await the PM reply with a shipped price.

Jamie,

When I had my E36 convertible it didn't sit too low at all. Drove it in (heavy) rain and puddles multiple times with no issues. I didn't get a chance to try it out in the Winter but I highly doubt there would be any issues. With that being said, exercise common sense and be aware of the fact that you have an intake that is lower to the ground than normal.

If you go for it, enjoy it! You'll love the sound!

If you have all your factory under-tray panels still in-tact and fog-lights/brake ducting installed, there will be minimal chance of getting slush on the filter element. I wouldn't recommend driving hours through a rain storm, but the odd jaunt across town should be fine.

You're welcome Rich. I only have 2 left now. This thread will be updated immediately once they're sold out.

Thanks Randy,

Got mine today (a day earlier than I expected). Installed and am pleased with it.
Thought I would mention that the screws in my package were larger than it said in the instructions. 8mm heads instead of 7 and considerably thicker than the drill they said to use... had to go up 3 or 4 bit sizes. Other than that it was a very smooth install. I didn't get a chance to honk on it yet but I pulled the hard top back off so I can hear her sing on the way to work (well the way home maybe... frost warning tonight) with the top down.

Jamie

The temptation to get an E46 one is strong...

What's the price shipped to P3E6H2 in Sudbury again?

I just sold some E36 stuff so I feel like I should be allowed to recycle that money back into my E46, right?
