How often do you clean your intake. just wondering about maintenance?
: I would do it--and did do it. I also drive mine daily, etc.....
: I got BETTER gas mileage with the euro HFM--even with the extra 30 hp. It is nice to have that extra when "challenging a fellow auto enthusiast".
: I HIGHLY recommend the mod... Also, if you use a cone tyype filter, make SURE you also buy a heat/turbulence shield, such as Jim C's. ...no matter what, you WILL need to shield it.
: : I am currently wondering whether I should Shark/Intake/HFM my 95 M3. Like the Subject heading says---> I drive my M3 daily to work. Do any of you feel uncomfortable abusing/or not even using so much power just for a daily commute? Engine life is a big concern. Should I just leave it stock? IF anything, I was thinking of just doing the air intake just to release the strangle-hold the stock air box has on my engine. I frequently when the chance arises, challenge the fellow auto enthusiast when he believes his vehicle has something to prove. As a daily-driver, I have become accustomed to the 240 hp under the hood and looking for the thrill that I first had when I bought my M3.Just looking for some thoughts/opinions.
