Do an online search for BMC CDA (carbon dynamic airbox) ...

There's also supposedly a 3" version which would be the one that fits my car...

I'm attaching 2 pictures of it installed on a Benz like mine.

The logic behind this intake is short piping like a ram air intake for high rpm resonance, and a cold air duct for cold air... so in theory it's a good all rpm system if you set it up right.

my car already has a similar system (cone filter in OEM box which i replaced with a K&N cone) ducted to the passenger side grill vent.

In the pictures you can see that they changed the duct to the driver's side to get direct air to the filter. A couple of people have done this mod and say they gained a bit of midrange with it...

obviously the key to this, is where you mount it and duct it.
