In lieu of reasonable options, I made my own.

Huge improvement, and minimal investment (less than 15 bucks)

3D printed rear vent, and used 2 types of foam to deaden sound. May even add frogzskin later, although the CVT filter assembly hasn't even gotten wet during a wash with current setup.

So how much difference did it make?
on a scale of 1 to 14 silence units, it is 17

j/k

I haven't measured. It's gone from something I won't drive without ear plugs at 25+mph to something I can skip earplugs with. I'll be doing more testing this weekend, as it will have some road time while traveling between trails.

I did the same thing, nice improvement for a little time cutting and some foam.

With the foam have you noticed higher belt temperatures it seems to be blocking the inflow of air to cool the belt?

Do the XMR snorkels quiet down the air intake noise heard from the driver's seat by a significant amount? And if they do, does anyone know roughly how much it would cost to add them to a non-XMR X3?

I finally got around to doing this mod as well. I took a pool noodle, cut and stuffed it in the opening. I then lasered out a and built a vent with frogskin for the backside. The screws I have on there in the picture are just for mock up. they will be replaced with shorter screws. It made a huge difference in the noise.

Good Day Everyone - just joined - visiting an old post but have a question -
Is it an option rather than cutting a hole in the intake cover - any thoughts as to drilling holes in the cover verses the grille piece filled with holes?? thank you in advance for your replies and input.
