Any intakes made for M550's yet? Even just filters?

Does lasso, Venturi, evolve or anyone make intake system for our cars? Or even a filter aside from H&N? I really want to hear more turbo sound and well perhaps a touch of top end breathing.
Anyone use anything out there?

Sergey Birioukov's cold air carbon intakes.
Nothing can be compared to. The best quality.

I have Sergey's intakes for sale. Have had them on my car for 4 months now. I haven't had any issues whatsoever. Don't know what mspired is talking about.

Yes, itís an easy DIY install. Just a few torx bolts for the 2 filter boxes and swap the factory filters. I think I purchased them from an Amazon seller. Just search the part #.

While they do now, I donít think K&N offered intake filters for the M550i until recently. I probably would have purchased the K&N filters had they been available when I was searching almost a year ago. I have a K&N air intake filter on my 2018 X5 that works well for me.

Yep things for our cars are really limited. I had BMC in my M5 and it was fine. Didn't know if anyone had known if there was a difference between bmc and KN. k&N is actually $50 less than BMC.

I have Sergey Birioukov's (n63intakes.com) carbon cold air intakes in my m550. They come with K&N filters. I also have Sergey's stage 1 tune. I recommend this combo.

My impressions:

1. First, the intakes were installed. I noticed some diff in performance. maybe it was in my imagination, because the engine sound became a bit more loud and aggressive, but I believe I noticed a difference with intakes.
2. After the tune (and intakes on), my car became really joyful. It was not slow before, i admit that, but after the tune it became really fast. Not a torpedo like Sergey's own bmw, but really really fast.

I got a couple of error notices relating to intelligent driving systems (even though all systems works normally), but i hope they will disappear after I reset the car by removing the battery clamp. If not, i think the reason may be of not proper connecting of some detectors when removing my bumper and putting it on after installing intakes.

Overall, I am very happy i chose his tune.
