Does anyone know more details, specifically, about this air baffle and what it's function is? Is it just to dampen the noise of the intake? Are we sure it's ok to just cap off?

Anyone have a video or sound clip of their bms intake on a M340i they can share please?

And it sounds like this is the only intake you can buy other than the k&n filter.. Can someone please confirm this?

Seems like it for now at least. Sounds aren't that much louder. Definitely noticeable tho. If you like the sound of the intake pulling air then maybe wait for a full kit that replaces the whole intake and pipe. Stock pipe is very restrictive.

I had Injen use my car last week so they can scan the engine bay and make the new heat shield for the intake and housing for evolution intake. They said they dyno'd the car with the short ram intake and the car now pushes 381 hp and 386 hp to the wheels. The evolution intake wasn't tested yet, but they used the short ram they have for supras and it looks nice!
