If so, that price is pretty competitive if the intake tube is also CF.
Thanks for clarification on materials...
The kit does not include a new MAF you reuse the oe MAF sensor.
But they advertise a larger MAF.
A larger MAF opening won't do diddly squat, and if you're fooling DME, without a tune (as claimed), I'm trying to understand how a larger MAF would help.

I think they are referring to a bigger MAF housing. Maybe Dinan can chime in and correct me if I am wrong. We did a few Dinan intakes + Stage 2 upgrades this week and the customers were very satisfied with the results.

Okay, let me see if I have this straight. I have MPPK and MPE on my 2014 435i xDrive. I can go Stage 2 with the MPE, buy the Dinan airbox and will get most of the performance gains and shouldn't impact warranty. Yes or no?

Correct, its a larger MAF housing.

Glad the customers were satisfied but then again its hard not be with a quick jolt of power and a sexy intake under the hood. Get those guys to post some reviews! =)

Yes on F30's. We placed a order for 5 intakes before the official launch of the intake systems. All are were sold. It is a very nice increase for customers who have been driving with stage 1 for some time now. Great product with a smooth installation. Updating mapping is easy as well.

Dang! 455 foot pounds may be more than I want. I might just go with the intake first and see how I like it.

Will the sound change be noticeable if you're upgrading from the MPPK air box?

Any chance to get a video showing the sound difference?

Stage 2, Dinan intake, 435x Dinan springs and bumps all on order. Will get some post install hot takes and pics up in probably a month (hopefully less). Excited to see the difference from mppk to mppk+stage 2!

Makes me feel better about paying BMW to do it..... I'll just relax, sip coffee, and watch TV in the waiting room I'll be $100+ lighter, but not frustrated with busted knuckles!

Install instructions

13. Using the cover plate as a drill template, drill the four hole pattern into the airbox using a #30 size drill bit. Install the 4 blind rivets in the hardware kit from the outside of the airbox.

You guys are going to drop $600 on 1/2 an air cleaner the maybe maxes at 10 advertised horsepower & don't even read the instructions?

It just looks good, and I did read install instructions in depth..... not worth the performance but the carbon fiber looks sick.
