E84 28i Cold air Intakes?

Hey guys, I had a question about intakes and which ones you guys recommend, I currently own a 28i X1 and I was also wondering if the N20 version of the MST intake would work for my vehicle.

I cleaned air filter at 27k miles, and noticed air is already cold from front of car out of engine compartment. Nothing to fix, and turbo gives all it can.

Or get a JB4 and trick car into giving more.

Ok, you could change the oil which is easy, or put on some brake pads.

Lots of Youtube vids on how to, and you'll save massive money.

Get one of those blowoff whistles for the exhaust.

Citizenboyo, did you ever find anything? I see AFE makes an intake for the N20. Only adds about 10HP, but turbo noise is reportedly much more evident. It goes for around $350. I had an AFE intake on my 335i years ago and really liked it.
