    BMW E46 aFe Cold-Air Intake Kits

    Free Shipping for BMW aFe IntakesFounded in 1999, Advanced Flow Engineering (aFe) produces high flow, high performance replacement air filters and complete cold-air intake systems for BMWs. Each precision-engineered intake component and filter offers excellent design and construction, lifetime cleanable cotton filters that breathe easier than paper filters, powder-coated heat shields to block out hot engine air, and measurable performance gains resulting in increased horse power and torque. aFe's reputation is fast growing as a manufacturer and designer of quality and functional intake kits with excellent fit and finish and reasonable cost.

    aFe enigneers their kits for each individual model application, even designing air filters from scratch to maximize the available surface area of the low pressure zone. They then offer their intake components in packages that fit your tastes and needs -
    Replacement Performance Filter. A direct performance replacement filter for your stock air box.
    Dynamic Air Scoops. Metal scoops or ducts that create a 'ram-air' effect to the intake.
    Super Stock System. A performance filter combined with Dynamic Air Scoops and Throttle Body Spacer for power gains while keeping the OEM appearance.
    Stage 1 Kit. A cone-filter kit with vehicle-specific heat shield and intake tubing to replace a stock airbox.
    Stage 2 Kit. All of the components in a Stage 1 Kit plus additional intake tubing or ducting after the air box or air mass meter.
    Sealed Intake. A Stage 1 or 2 Kit with an enclosed airbox and heat shield. The filter area is maximized inside a vehicle-specific airbox and then sealed with a cover for a OEM-type appearance.

    Sale of AFE Intakes!Free Shipping for BMW aFe IntakesDirect more fresh cool air from your BMW's center/nose grills to your intake, with the aFe D.A.S. (Dynamic Air Scoop). These scoops install behind your front grills to direct more airflow into the factory intake snorkel used on E46 M3 2001-2007. The Scoops are a direct bolt-in install, and include installation instructions and required hardware for a simple install. When combined with a higher flowing filter, such as the aFe stock replacement filter these scoops help get the maximum benefit of a higher efficiency filter by providing more cool, fresh outside air directly into the intake snorkel.

    This aFe Intake Scoop fits the following BMWs:

    Sale of AFE Intakes!Free Shipping for BMW aFe Intakes"Oil-Free" ProDry S Filter

    This intake kit replaces your restrictive factory air box. It features a 1.6mm powder-coated steel heat shield, trim sealed to seal out hot engine air, and a custom aFe brand cotton filter.

    This version has an oil-free filter media for less maintenance. For the best flowing filter, with the best performance gain, we always recommend the standard aFe "Pro5R " filter (which has a blue pre-oiled filter media), but this oil-free filter flows only slightly less than the blue Pro5R style aFe filter, and requires no re-oiling after cleaning the filter.

    By removing your stock intake air box, you are removing the most restrictive portion of your intake system, increasing both horse power and torque, improving acceleration as well as throttle response.

    aFe has reported gains as high as 6 hp and 12 lb/ft torque

    For the maximum benefit in performance, we recommend upgrading your engine software with the Shark Injector (Click here for more info on the Shark Injector performance software.)

    This intake kit replaces your restrictive factory air box. It features a 3-angle aluminum velocity stack adapter, 1.6mm powder-coated steel heat shield, trim sealed to seal out hot engine air, and a custom aFe brand cotton filter.

    This version uses aFe's highest flowing filter media, which uses a lightly oil gauze to filter out dirt and particulates, while allowing more air to flow to the intake. For the best flowing filter, with the best performance gain, we always recommend this standard aFe filter media (often called "Pro5R ", which has a blue pre-oiled filter media). We also carry this filter in the "ProDry" grey filter media, which is oil-free for only slightly less performance and no maintenance.

    Want an extra layer of defense? Add a pre-filter to prevent water, mud and sand from congesting your air intake system. This simple upgrade slides over the aFe filter of this intake kit, much like a sock, giving you an extra layer of defense, and extending the cleaning interval of your aFe intake's filter element. Best of all, using the Pre-Filter does not significantly diminish your air filter’s performance—the smooth rush of oxygen keeps rolling right into your engine. To add the pre-filter, just select the option for the drop-down option below.
