"...any possibility of pix like you did for your Z-car?"

I don't have a digital camera, all the Z3 pics were from others guys that took shots of it on Z3 drives and at Z3 Homecomng at the factory a little bit ago.

If you can pull your lower airbox out grab the inlet and twist it and the mod should become pretty apparent. You just need to feel around inside the muffler for the clips that will release it.

You air intake position after you do this mod is almost exactly the same as it was stock. So you really don't need to do anything else with the airbox. Other then putting it back in the car and taking it for a spin.

"Also what about the relatively cheap Dinan air intake for the '95 540? thanx?"

I haven't seen anything on it so I can't comment.
