If you are asking that question then, for me, you already know the answer.

If you had a genuinely knowledgeable mate to watch and guide you then yes not too difficult but on your own and needing to ask would suggest not.

If he works in a garage then he won't need instructions for this work. Do a search on replacing front wishbone both top and bottom or replacing strut and you will find all that you need. Replacing the air filter is simple but again do a search and there are lots of threads. Between you choose which layout for the filter you like best.

Personally I am with those who wouldn't upgrade the standard intake.

Check out my 2nd post on this thread:

Also, air filter is easy once you have the undertrays off which is required to do the springs.

she drives fantastic
little stiffer, not somthing that bothers me at all, love the looks of it
only thing i am concerned about is the mechanic sad the oem shock absorbers will be damged and will be out of order in about 2 months with these lowering springs, so if it's true ill have to go and buy some gas shocks ...
also installed the inbox bmc filter today
can feel just a little sound increase and better throttle response (nothing too noticable)

Hi, a bit late on this.
Looking to order the BMC air filter.
Is it worth it? How much did you pay for it and where did you order it from?
I heard that the BMC air filter is notoriously difficult to install. Was that the case with you as well?

If you are talking about the BMC CDA unit, then yes it will be terrible to install and have very little benefit for the effort involved. If you are talking about just a BMC replacement filter, then it is as easy as OEM replacement and benefit will be lowish, but then what are you planning on gaining anyway? There are very little to gain from intake mods alone.
