CAI Color?
What color CAI do you have on what color car?

And what color might you recommend for a silver Celly (Out of the AEM CAIs)?


AND, also... http://www.aemintakes.com/pop_product.asp?pid=1&pic=2

Which one is the shiny silver, close to the bottom? Is it Silver or Polished?


Thanks!

I have the Polished Injen CAI, I would say get a color specific to the scheme of your engine bay (if you have plans for it). The shiny silver aka Polished is the bottom one! thumbsup

Yeah... Being that the CAI will be my first upgrade, it will sort of be defining my color scheme wink

Personally, I'm leaning toward the polished, but when I get close to ordering, I second guess and consider the red and blue ones! tongue

I'm thinking I may go with the polished silver wink

My interior is keeping to a 'black, white, and the grey between' scheme... I think a I may go with something similar for the engine bay.

Come to think of it, someday I'll have to switch out all the orange LEDs for plain white tongue But that's a battle for another day.

Thanks for that link, too. It's quite helpful!
