AFe cold air stage 2 5r intake

So I recently installed a cold air intake from AFe into my 2009 n51 128i. I have read up on other intake systems such as injen and they all say there is no power gain. With the aFe, you definitely feel it in your seat. Car is much louder also more from the engine and takes out that whining whistling sound. Highly recommend this to our cars.

You feel a difference

I thought the AFE was the "only" air intake that produced any (albeit slight) measurable increase in HP? Or is that only w/ a tune?

I haven't added an air intake to my 128i yet, but the CAI (w/ tune) made my E36 328is feel and sound more visceral.

Not sure but some say they feel a difference some say it's just noise. I don't have a tune in mine. But I do feel a difference
