I have a manual too. I can induce the noise by over throttling the car with high load, but driving normal its pretty quiet.... which I like. all the intakes with filters in the engine bay are louder.

Well.....depends...

For a stock F80 or F82 maybe... for a ZCP with exhaust mods...nope, I don't think so.

If you get them, make sure you get the second generation filter style.
2 of my buddies have the second gen filters which were supposedly blitz filters on their Rk autowerkes intakes and they are both rusting so make sure to keep an eye on that.

To Op in terms of sound MSR is the loudest, then max psi and then vrsf as far as the front mount CAIs go.

Max PSI is best bang for the buck in terms of fitment, quality and no CEL issues, that vrsf suffers from.

injen evolution intakes were excellent for me.

the regular injen eith heat shields gave me issues under hard acceleration.

MSR makes the the most power and looks the best IMHO. And for those who say intakes don't make power, run a 11.6 with just an intake like I did, or a 10.985 @ almost 130 with bolts ons and BM3 Stage 2 OTS on 93 Octane.

Pros

- Good support
- Looking good

Cons

- Not sure about heavy rain
- Cleaning filters is not fun

As much as I love the intake I would not go with a front mount again...
Are you that Worried about Rain that you wound have gone a different route? I really want a Front Mount Intake (MSR) but worry about water. I have had a few people tell me that they have had no issues in Heavy Storms.

VRSF installed today

VRSF is obviously a different design that has its pros but requires more labor.
if you do not mind the additional install time, go with VRSF.

If you are only looking for an easy install BMS or Injen is the way to go.
You do not need the heat shield for any performance gains.
Biggest difference between the 2 is that Injen does sound louder
From what you've seen, does it seem like VRSF fitment issues have been resolved? Also, more or less whoosh sounding than injen? Reason I ask is bc I've heard a few VRSF sound clips, but none for injen.
We installed brand new VRSF intakes today! No issues with fitment and the sound is intoxicating with my MPE exhaust !

All prior issues have been resolved! We have over 100 sets out in the wild right now with a handful of positive reviews on the website!

No do not go with burger. They are known for their CEL issues. I donít believe many people run that intake anymore. The maf sensor is located in a different spot than oem. I have not heard of them correcting the issue.

I haven't heard of any MAF issues with the BMS S55 intake or had any on our M4. As far as I can tell many other intakes out are based on the same piping although the BMS is one of the few that retains the factory airbox bottom for ducting and heat management.

It has definitely been a issue. I had the issue and know numerous others who have. Justin at Auto Talent will tell you the same. Local bmw dealership and Protuning freaks have all seen it.
