Hey i just came across this picture and noticed where the air intake was!
Never knew that before!
I think its the same on the (latest generation) SLs as well.....

SLR Engine



and also since this is about air intakes.heres another pretty picture of the mustang GT-R air intakes which i thought were sweet looking...



cheers
Rehaan

PS - oh also..... i know the E46 M3 has 6 butterflys....but how many throttle bodies does it have? (please provide a link to the source also...thnx)

Hey Rehaan,
The E46 M3 has 6 individual Throttle Bodies. I have included a pic below. The air box also is a bit bad design for the E46. There are custom Airboxes for the M3 that improve flow. Also i have included a pics from the NY Auto Show 2004.









Enjoy!
Dom

Suprising thing is that they dont have an enzo there!!.....and the outdoor part where the saleen is parked.....im not sure if that was just for the press event or is gonna be there all through..have heard conflicting reports.

Didnt quite understand what u meant...... was it there just for the first 1 or 2 press/special days or for the full duration of the show?
