- Fantastic!!! I immediately felt the increased responsiveness...
- Fantastic!!! I immediately felt the increased responsiveness and power boost, way better than expected! Not to mention the deep "purring" sound that has replaced the soft purr from the stock intake. Product build is attractive, and very sturdy. Installation was a breeze. I am very pleased with this product and would not hesitate to recommend to family, friends and anyone else with an BMW X5. My only regret is that I didn't get it sooner!!! Great job aFe! (Next up for purchase is the throttle body spacer.) Do yourself a favor and get yourself one for your ride, you will NOT be disappointed. Thanks aFe, simply awesome!

I was shocked by the quality of material. Thick gauge metal not some vacuum formed POS. it was a perfect fit using the factory hold down clips. It even has the proper cuts in the top gasket to fit around corners. Kudos gentlemen! I can tell someone thought this product out who cared about quality, fit and finish. What else do my make for my car?
