    Engine & Performance
    Hey guys, For sale today I have a genuine BMW performance air intake. Part #13720432306. I believe that this will only fit on a 325i due to a difference in maf sensor diameter. The intake is in very good but not perfect condition. There are a couple very light scuffs on the top of the box...

    So I installed a dinan cold air intake on my 2005 bmw 330ci, the long tube one that goes all the way down.
