Installed on a 2011 MCS. Very easy to install, except on 2011+. You must use your stock tube from the tubro due to two sensors being mounted in the tube. I trimmed down the AEM pipe to fit from the air box to the stock tube. AEM heat shield must also be trimmed on the N18 engine. The oil cap filler is closer to the front of the vehicle and will not allow proper bolt alignment without a trim. Overall outstanding.

Picked up the AEM cold air intake and just installed this past weekend on my 2012 R58 JCW. Th install was easy and went in quickly with a minor mod needed to the mounting hole which was drilled out a bit.But unless I missed something, the next morning I went to work with way less power now in the car. and I'm a bit perplexed by the issue.And the check engine light was on. disconnected the battery to try and reset the system with no luck. Car is now at the shop getting looked over. For something that in reading needed zero ECU or tuning needed, has me frustrated. Any reading have any insight would be greatly appreciated.

Advantages: quick, easy install

Disadvantages: loss of power

Installed on 2009 mini cooper s fit perfect with no issues. The air filer gauge was not in the kit. It is in the pictures. But i did not see anything for it in the instructions. So i may not have been included. Had very noticeable power gain not much of a sound change.

Advantages: 50 state legal i was surprised has a carb sticker that goes on it. Comes with 3 decals and one on the tube. Looks great functions awesome. Very pleased.

Disadvantages: Decal on intake tube was crooked so i removed it an put on one of the included ones. Modification to the air box needed to use forge BOV kit because it hits the manifold pressure sensor. I used a heat gun to soften the plastic where the sensor is located. Then pushed the air box down onto the sensor while it was hot and held it until the plastic cooled now the box is reshaped over the sensor.
