    So I've run into another little issue with my 2001 BMW 325i and the problems are starting to get real. I am currently getting codes for lean mixture (P0171 P0174 P1083 P0185) it's starting to really affect driving. At a stoplight I can feel my car and see it dipping a small amount (about 1-100...

    So I installed a dinan cold air intake on my 2005 bmw 330ci, the long tube one that goes all the way down. I know someone who has the exact same one on his 323, and when he revs his engine you can instantly hear the deep sound the intake gives off. Mine only makes a similar sound above 4000rpm...

    Hey guys, I am pretty new to CAI mods even though in some situations it is considered a pretty standard/beginner mod. Anyway my question is what would be a nice budget friendly cold air intake. I know it doesn't really show any exponential values of performance, but I do love the throatier sound...

    Searched around on the forum and couldn't find any info on this... I'm thinking about making my own custom CAI through bits and pieces I can buy at the local auto store and I can't decide on which air filter to go with. I want to stick with the non-oiled filters because of the horror stories of...

    Hey guys, Being new to this forum thing, I'm sure many of y'all have already answered these questions, but I'd like to open a new thread with fresh ideas. First off, I have an '04 330Ci Sport, and would like to see what y'all think about 1) K&N v. AFE cold air intakes, 2) muffler delete w/...

    Hey guys i got a couple of questions. Im trying to install a CAI in my 2003 325xi but i don't know which one to go with. I've been searching around and couldn't find many CAIs that were made for the XI model so this leads me to my next question. Do the 325i CAI models fit on the XIs? If you...

    So I hopped in a drove a bit after installing the intake, looking for the promised throttle response and that fabled sound everyone mentions about CAI's. After a few minutes and only hearing a little whistle I was getting kinda disappointed, not to mention annoyed at the slow-ass car in front...

    Whatsup Guys :hi: New member and first post here so bear with me. I've been looking into chipping my 2003 325xi for a little while now but haven't really brought myself to doing it. Some people swear by the bav auto power programmer, others love the dinan software, and then of course there is...

    So I have a 2001 BMW 330Ci with the Dinan CAI and a Borla Cat back. I am debating on getting two things. Number one is new rims for my car. I am looking at the E46 M3 Rims. The second is the Dinan Stage II Software, which is recommended by Dinan for people who have the CAI. Which one should I...

    How much should it cost to get the Dinan high flow intake system installed, by a professional? Also how hard is it to put it in, as the instructions look very technical. Thanks guys!
  13. E46 General
    Hi I am looking for a dinan high flow intake system. I would prefer to have the system new, but a slightly used system is ok as well. I need it to fit a 2001 BMW 330Ci. Also if anyone knows where I can, get one for a discount price that would be extremely helpful as well. Thanks and I hope to...

    Hello I own a BMW 330Ci, and I was wondering what the best cold air intake I should buy for my car is. I have heard of brands such as Dinan, ECIS, GruppeM, and Rouge, I just dont know what intake is the best out of these ones. Also I would like to know if it is even worth putting in a cold air...

    Hello I own a 2001 BMW 330Ci, and I was looking on the Dinan website at their cold air intake, which goes with this model. I was also looking at the K&N 57-1001 CAI which goes with my car. I did some research and people have been saying that the K&N CAI is no good, and will actually make me lose...

    so i found an amazing deal for a a dinan intake (old style metal tube) but it is for a 328,325,323. I searched and found out that the tube is 2.5" and mine is a 3". so all i would have to do is get a rubber coupling. Can anybody reassure me that I am correct. I dont want to buy it and it not...

    Does the Dinan Air Intake block the brake cooling duct? Does it obstruct it in any way? If not, then how does it get air from the brake duct? Thanks!!!
  18. E46 General
    Does anyone out there have a Dinan CAI? and if so do you think it's worth the $$...or is a K&N better? :idea: I have a 1999 323i...
