    The price for an OEM CSL intake, especially for manual cars, have skyrocketed into the stratosphere.... absolutely crazy which is why I'm going all in with Karbonius. I have a friend who installed one into his M3 and the fit and finish was just amazing...



    Check out the price above and you will understand why I chose Karbonius for my M3...

    That is absurd pricing.

    I agree. That's why I decided to go with the Karbonius airbox... it looks just as nice as the OEM version. I have seen one installed on a friend's car and that is why I decided to go this route instead...

    Anyone else find it sus that the supposedly Genuine BMW item pictured is for manual non-SMG cars only, but the CSL only came in SMG? Why would a part like this exist OE from BMW?

    It's not the car you drive, it's how you drive it.

    They are the same part Botond....unless there are any internal differences or differences (doubtful), the airbox should be the same between SMG and Manual.


    In the picture above you can see the CSL engine bay with the SMG expansion tank clearly visible (yellow circle) and below the Karbonius CSL airbox installed in a 6MT M3. The airbox in either application look the same and people have installed and used the OEM CSL airbox on their 6MT M3s without issues so this is probably a marketing gimmick on ECS Tuning's part...

    What do you typically service at the dealer for the M?

    I have them do fluid changes as it is more of a convenience for me to have them do this. Alignments and safety inspections are also done there... anything major such as rod bearing maintenance, VANOS maintenance are done using a good indy shop. I have access to a few here. Brakes and suspension work is usually done at my garage...

    I put in a lot of time and money into this car more out of my passion for these cars... I have made a lot of nice friends over the years all because of my passion for the E46 platform... one of these friends just sent me a text for me to make a video to put on his YouTube channel... I was taken by this and will be making a video shortly to send to him



    I can only say my M3 get's a lot of attention when I take it in for service and/or when I attend the annual huge area car meets hosted by Broke East....it is nice to share the work I have put into this car with everyone
