So I installed the AFE cold air intake. Installation was a breeze and the fitment is great. There is not really a noticeable increase in power, but with a tune and some other upgrades, they would compliment each other. Overall a great product.(5)APPEARANCEEASE OF INSTALLATIONPRICE/VALUEQUALITY| Posted by Jacques | (Quebec City, QC)

I'm looking to purchase the juicebox with the aFe cold air intake. Will these products void my BMW warranty?
The BMS and aFe (the manufacturers of these products) sites both touch on this issues. This is what they have to say: From the Burger Motorsport site: Will it void my warranty? Should I remove parts before going in for service? Most leave parts like ECU tunes and intakes on for basic oil changes and service but we suggest removing any modifications prior to making a warranty claim. This is to ensure they are not causing the problem and to make things easier for your technician who may not be familiar with how to properly remove and reinstall your modified parts. Before going in we also suggest reading/deleting the hidden DME codes using the JB4 built in code reading/deleting, a CAN Tool, or a BT Cable. JB4 users should always set the tune to map 0 / pass through mode before going in to avoid it interfering with external diagnostic equipment. (http://www.burgertuning.com/faq.htm) From the aFe site: Will putting an aFe filter or air intake system in my vehicle void my factory warranty? Legally, a vehicle manufacturer cannot void the warranty on a vehicle due to an aftermarket part unless they can prove that the aftermarket part caused or contributed to the failure in the vehicle (per the Magnuson Moss Warranty Act (15 U.S.C. 2302(C)). For best results, consider working with performance-oriented dealerships with a proven history of working with customers. If your vehicle manufacturer fails to honor emission/warranty claims, contact EPA at (202) 260-2080 or www.epa.gov. If federal warranty protection is denied, contact the FTC at (202) 326-3128 or www.ftc.gov.

I saw on your web site that this product fit on E60 525i & 530i. Does it fit also on 528i (2008)? Thanks
I checked with aFe and yes, this intake will work on your 3.0L 528i. It is available in two version, oil and dry. The AFE Pro Dry S has an Off-White Air Filter and allows for 50% air flow over stock and provides 99.2% filtration. The AFE Pro 5 R (oiled) uses a Blue Air FIlter and allows for 75% air flow over stock and provides 98.6% filtration.
I understand the benefits of a better cold air intake for the car over the oem but my query is which of the two types is better for a hotter type air as you would find in Arizona, the oiled type intake or the dry?
aFe offers two different types of filter media for most of our filters and intake systems because everyone has different driving conditions and different driving needs. Basically differences are: Pro5R Oiled is 5-layers of progressively finer mesh oiled cotton gauze which offers maximum airflow. This media is ideal for those who drive mostly on paved street and highway who want maximum horsepower. Oiled is also ideal for those who do a lot of unpaved, off-road driving in severe dusty and dirty environments where protection is more important than maximum horsepower, because it can be cleaned. ProDryS is a 3-layer progressively finer porosity synthetic non-woven media, which is oil-free and offers maximum convenience since it does not require re-oiling. This media is ideal for those who donít want the hassle of re-oiling a filter. The air temperature is not the issue, the amount of Dust in your environment really makes the choice for you.
