Simota Carbon Fiber Cold Air Intake for Z4 non-M

You guys ever hear about the Simota Carbon Fiber Cold Air Intake? It's made for the E46, but fits the Z4s, non-M.

It's similar to my RD Sport intake and similar to the Gruppe M design. What do you guys think?

Looks a lot like the GruppeM, and for a lot less. If it fits, I'd say get it.

question is which do you order... Nice find though... When I look to get one on down the road I will have to keep it in mind, it looks much better the the AFE and I wasnt gonna drop Gruppe $$ on an intake that wont do anything.

It's priced much lower than the Gruppe M and a little lower than my RD Sport intake.
X2 on the feedback!!!

you should be able to find Simota intakes for like $130 bucks. But even at a couple hundred its still better than AFE.
