FS: E46 Carbon Fiber COLD AIR INTAKE - Group Buy

Selling brand new (sealed in box) Carbon Fiber Cold-Air intake systems for an E46 BMW 3-Series (non-M3 only) made by Carbonio.
These are quality-made pure carbon kits (not stickers) that are durable, have superior air-flow and amazing heat resistance characteristics.
This kit makes a noticeable increase in performance & sound (definitely not QUIET!).
Retails for $360+USD Further information below:

QTY: 24 kits
Price $260.00 FIRM (per kit)

DESCRIPTION:
Our performance carbon fiber intake system extracts
the most from BMW’s legendary inline-6. Featuring a
carbon fiber induction tract to keep inlet temperatures
down, the intake has been profiled to optimize airflow
volume and velocity into the throttle body. The result
is sharper throttle response, smoother power delivery
and a flatter torque curve.

FEATURES:
• Increases horsepower and torque
• Improves throttle response and fuel efficiency
• Maintains factory emissions components
• Fits vehicles with halogen, xenon, or bi-xenon
headlights
• Unique thermal barrier composite construction
ensures low inlet temperatures.

PERFORMANCE:
• Power increase: 9-12 hp
• Torque increase: 8-12 lb/ft

APPLICATIONS:
• All 1999-2005 6-cylinder 3 Series models
(Excluding M3)

Sorry. This is an end-of-production clearance. Only these two 3-series kits. Terry, maybe you can buy 2 and make them work with a few mods?

No offence randy but that thing looks like a ebay product .. surprised you would put that in your car .. if you want it to go down then get the Dinan one.

If you want a decent intake go conforti or Afe

Ebay product?...cough..cough...looks like someone needs to see one in person.

The main issue, of course, is that these intakes are over 10 years old, since then every company in China has copied the design.

You couldn't be further from the truth Arek. Those "decent" intakes you claim are jokes (easily made by anyone with a sheet metal brake & local hardware store accessories). The R&D, quality and attention to detail of Carbonio products would be right at home with Pagani or Koenigsegg. I've been to their facilities (last week to pick up these intakes) and it's absolutely amazing what they produce. Nothing Chinese, I can assure you!

Click on this link and research the company further before throwing out speculations. http://www.carbonio.com/composites/

P.S. I'll never put anything Dinan on my car.

This is true, but i've priced these competitively to move. These are truly beautiful works-of-art for a very reasonable price.

lol...it's a pretty simple product, a smooth tube with a filter on the end. I don't see how putting a dinan logo on it makes it any better. For the money you can't beat this.

I have this exact intake on my 330ci. It sounds great. Increase in power? That one im not too sure about. Definitely improves throttle response though.
