    Default Available Induction kits.

    Hi guys
    I've got the K&N Panel filter with the air box mod. I'm happy with it how it is but have been looking about at Induction kits?
    What ones are available for Vec C, especially the 2.2 SRi as thats what I have
    Just window shopping at the moment but be interested to see whats on the market.

    Vehicle : BMW 525i

    Trim : M-Sport

    Engine : 2.5l Straight 6


    Default

    best bet it to pick one up off ebay 2nd hand ofr a few quid then buy the pipework you need otherwise your looking at £200 for a new vec specific one

    The pipercross viper, k&n apollo are both good kits and ive got the bmc cda.

    Just make sure you get a closed system or it messes with the cars system.

    I find the cars alot more responsive and has cured a couple flat spots i had so i would definately recommend one

    TBH, I've seen an the same Apollo kit past on 3 times on this forum, each owner didn't really get on with it, they all went back to panel filter.

    I'm owner number 4 lol and I think it's killed my MAF. I thought it looked a bit over oiled but I'd never had a cotton filter before so I just stuck it on. I'll give the MAF a clean with some Isopropanol, if that doesn't work it's a warranty claim.

    Still, I did notice a difference in performance & the noise is just fantastic.
