They are all the same, doubt you will find any real data anywhere that says AFE filters (not sure exactly which filter it uses) is superior to K&N filters. Besides, changing the filter out is the easy bit, you can put in any filter that fits. The GruppeM intake looks fantastic. AFE is not consistent with the philosophy!

If you have $2k then get the Gruppem or Dinan also make nice one.

Really.. I didn't notice much until I put about 100k's and it adapted..

More responsive down low and up high in the rev range.. or it could be just me trying to justify the purchase Paul..

From what I have read it isn't a very measurable mod...more so if a tune is on the car

It would be more noticeable if you have a tune and fmic. Stock intake has enough flow for stock boost.

Air filters or cai make f all difference to forced induction cars.
Can make them look better when the bonnet is up tho, which is v important to some folks, which is fair enough

Crap! Cooler less restrictive air flow is very good for fi engines. Meth is better though

Alpha-n splitter

Joe - hard to tell if these are any lower or not than the "snout". Side on the splitter looks in line, but front on it's hard to tell if it's lower or just effect of a 2D photo. Look damn good against VO, tho'

Yeh, I had a close look at these splitters after we spoke on Sunday..

If you follow the line at the peak of the splitter, it seems to be lower than the added MotoGp lip..

I think its a no go for me unfortunetly.

Not a fan of those splitters or any splitter on a 135 or 1M. Looks good from the side angle but not front on.

Take a photo from the same angle showing the complete car from behind. I think the smaller pics aren't that great quality which makes it look better with it off.

It does look very clean without the M.

Should you decide you don't want it ... consider it sold!

Thanks for the feedback...
I don't think that there is any question that the 1M is an M car, so badge isn't required....looks way cleaner without. The chrome looks bad, but the black badge draws even more attention to the badge.
