Best Intake for a 128i?

Hey guys. I recently put an exhaust on the 128 but now the cars torque seems to have decreased. I was wondering what intake would be best for it to get a better feel of the power on the car? I was thinking the INJEN Intake. Any suggestions?

Thanks!

I'm thinking open. Wouldn't it give a good sound in the engine?

It would be good to go for intake definitely it will boost up the power and performance of your car as well as improve the sound. I have also installed an open intake kit while I was worrying about my car’s performance and sound.

Of intake as I bought with them BMW 128i 3.0L 6cyl Cold Air Intake.

An intake really wont add a whole lot of power HP wise, but I always like an intake because it makes the car sound much better and it will give you some gains too. Injen is a good intake for BMW's and I know a lot of owners like to run it
