Active Autowerke Cold Air Intake System BMW E36 3-Series and M3
Experience the Ultimate in Cold Air Intakes by installing the Active Autowerke CAIS. The hi-flow air filter with the intake runner will optimize the proper air flow for peak performance. The heavy, double insulated CAIS walls will help maintain the colder air intake charge even under extreme hot, humid conditions. A black powder-coated grill cover is also included which adds a finishing touch to the engine bay. This is where "form comes with function".

Measured Engine Bay 194 Deg

Measured Air Intake 124 Deg inside Active CAIS

CAIS Bump Up Kit
Already own an Active Autowerke CAIS for your ‘95 E36 M3 with the stock 3.0” HFM, but wish you owned an intake system capable of holding a 3.5" HFM? Active Autowerke's 3.0” to 3.5” CAIS Bump Up Kit has you covered – at a fraction of the cost of a full replacement system.

Simply remove the old intake pipe, hose with clamps, and air filter. Then install the upgrade components supplied with our Bump Up Kit. You’ll keep your existing intake system with insulated side panels and grill cover. Of course, you’ll also need a 3.5 HFM.

Upgrade kit matched for the Active Autowerke Large HFM.

Unique Design
The Active Autowerke CAIS is the only air intake system that actually uses foam insulation panels for each CAIS panel, both inside and outside making for a total 14mm wall thickness. This Double Wall insulation shares similar design principles to that of a IGLOO ™ cooler.

Grill Design
The Active Autowerke CAIS is the only air intake system that utilizes a Grill Cover over the CAIS. Slotted vents provide a aesthetic design as well as providing unrestricted air flow.
