Awesome lightweight carbon intake system from Eventuri brand — world known manufacturer of performance intake systems. Not only crazy outside appearance and highest quality carbon, but patented technology of high-flow air filters and air flow distribution. Bolt-on installation, cooler air at intake and improved performance as a result. And stunning look. What else do you need for your X3M or X4M, BMW-guy?
Eventuri has again developed a great technical solution through extensive real world testing and airflow simulation analysis.
The BMW X3M/X4M intake setup is a very well designed system in the given space available. The flow path from the filters to the turbo inlets is very direct and does not change direction as abruptly as the usual OEM airbox designs. So instead of a complete redesign Eventuri focused on improving the OEM airbox with less restrictive flow and improved temperature efficiency.
Replacement drop-in filters are made from non-woven mesh which have a much higher flow rate as compared to the stock paper filters. The filtration element allows for less restriction while maintaining suitable filtration properties. The mesh is captured in a Urethane surround which is very stable at high temperatures and retains its shape to allow for an adequate seal at all times. Each set comprises of 2 small and 2 larger filters which fit perfectly inside the OEM filter cartridges.
Large carbon scoops are installed directly behind the grills, thus helping to reduce inlet air temperatures and force air into the airbox. The scoops were designed for maximum efficiency in directing the incoming air to the stock duct openings. They channel air into the ducts and effectively effectively de-restrict the inlet side of the airbox.
Unlike most aftermarket "scoops" the Eventuri Scoops have been designed extend from the stock duct openings all the way to the grills. In order to capture as much air as possible, the scoops are shaped to the same contours as the outsides of the grills and then smoothly channel ambient air through a continuous curve to the duct openings.

The final piece is the carbon airbox lid which although doesn’t add much to the performance in horsepower, but since the lid is made from carbon, it is thinner and lighter than the stock lid and so the induction sound of the engine is more audible.
- Reduced heat soak iand inlet air temperatures
- Incredible outlook and appearance under hood
- Highest quality pure carbon fiber and air-filters material
- Bolt-on installation
- Faster acceleration time and power gain even without remap (just think how fast it will after appropriate software tune)
- Aerodynamically more efficient airflow path from outside to the filters and than to the MAF tubes
- Patented filter flow technology
