N55 Bms Intake

Anyone else think the noise somewhat takes away from the "clean" sound of our cars? Looks amazing and I think it's probably amazing for track cars and those who want to really hear the turbo but maybe I am getting old at 26.... I like the clean sound of the inline 6 to overpower the sound of my turbo

Anyone want to buy a BMS intake from me? Brand new!!

That's funny. I'm 43 and bummed I can't hear the turbos on my new 135! Mines an N54 though.

I actually felt the same way after I bought mine and considering there really isn't any noticeable gains with it I sold men after having it for about 3 months. I realized I appreciate a nice sound from an inline 6 rather than the turbo. My last car was a mazdaspeed3 and Japanese car engines sound like shit so of course then I wanted my turbo to be as audible as possible lol but the sound if the 135's engine alone is beautiful.

Yeah I think after owning a few cars that I enjoyed hearing turbos on.... I have come to realize I enjoy the "sleeper" style of this car being that you can't really hear the turbo much. Well I guess another part is going in the FS thread
