    Best mod for the money.

    Great feeling on the highway at low revs when you put your foot down, you can really feel it. For whatever they go for these days, definitely worth it.

    Look at it this way, the quickest 60-130 time was done running scoops, right? For a while, the quickest bolt on time was with scoops. The quickest time today is also with scoops... is this all just a coincidence?

    I agree, yes and no the fact the scoops weren't tested independently. All full bolt on cars seem to have them. I respect RPi and their science behind it. I've studied it ever since their E60 M5 block off plate days.

    The scoops work better on the M5/M6 but still make a nice difference on the M3.

    I highly recommend the RPI scoops.

    He is showing the size difference between the RPI and ASR scoops. However, those are the N54 scoops I believe.

    They make a pretty nice difference... I don't see what else you will spend $100 bucks on that would be more enjoyable. Maybe Sushi?
