Cold Air Intake vs. Air Induction

Hello everyone... I am going to the dealership in 2 hours to pick up my brand new GXP. $31,700 including GGT, after all rebates for a dealer demo model with 3000 miles on it, manual tranny and sun roof. Silver exterior and black/red interior. I am pretty pleased with the deal... although who knows, perhaps that just means my dealer is a good salesman.

For my first mod I am trying to decide between these two types of intakes:

* Cold Air (

* Air Induction (

I would appreciate any opinions/suggestions on the differences between the two!

Congrats on the new ride, IMO the there is very little difference between all the intakes for these cars. I am sure some will say different, but your only looking at a few RWHP either way. Just pick the one that you think will look the best under the hood. I personally picked the Volant after looking at all the same ones as you. The Volant looks cool, and DRCustoms will be getting a Superchips tune for it really soon, so your gains will be all that much better.
Happy Shopping, and enjoy that M6 GXP!!

Welcome to the M6 GXP Club...
I too am going with Volant. I like the cool air snorkel idea behind it...
