BMS BMW N55 Performance Intake (135i, 335i & X1)
Gain up to 10+whp along with terrific sound
Finally, an intake system worthy of your N55 TwinPower motor! The BMS N55 Performance Intake retains everything that is good about the OEM N55 intake system including the cold air ducting and light weight heat shielding airbox bottom; but, completely replaces the restrictive top end of the OEM intake with new high flow ducting and a performance filter to match. Works great alone or with other aftermarket upgrades for even more performance.
Unlike some manufacturers that advertise huge gains for their N55 intake systems we're not going to tell you replacing the N55 intake will add 25hp+ because we've dyno tested them all and know they won't. But during our extensive dyno testing the BMS N55 Intake out performed all other available N55 intake systems posting gains of up to 10+ horsepower to the wheels. In addition to freeing up some power turbo spool speed is improved. Not to mention an incredible sound improvement. You'll finally be able to hear your turbo spooling!
Installation is very easy taking the average enthusiast only five minutes to install or remove right in their driveway. Our proprietary high flow filter can be cleaned every 15 - 20k miles using an off the shelf K&N cleaning kit and will last the life of the car. Made in USA.

Intake arrived next day, with the (fairly) complex safe place instructions followed exactly. Took around 10 minutes to install, only need a philips head, flat head and torx T20 bit. You probably won't notice any performance difference, but the sound is fantastic. You can hear the intake bringing in air and the turbo spooling up much more than before. You can hear the "whoosh" when getting on it with the stock intake, but this is definitely louder and happens at lower RPM. Definitely would recommend.
Intake arrived perfectly packaged in a nice fast time, came with a lovely hand written note too! Great service! Made two orders with ML so far, I'm sure many more will follow!
Great intake for a reasonable price. Installation was easy and took only 30 mins with basic tools and basic knowledge on a driveway. Also the customer service was perfect with great comunication and next day delivery even to Czech Republic. I have no other option than highly recommend ML Performance and I will definitely buy other parts for my BMW from ML.
