Can someone post pictures of the engine of their 2021 M550 and specially the air intakes? I am looking at getting the carbon fiber intake from n63intakes, but do not know if it will fit with the new model. They asked for pictures of the engine to determine if it is all the same. My car is being shipped and won't be here until the end of the month. Thanks!

2021 M550 has the m5 style intakes.

The 2018/19 have the older style.

From my understanding.

Yeah, I thought that might be the case... does that mean that intakes made for the f90 M5 will fit the 2021 m550?

I'm not sure on that one. I would imagine it could be made to work. Custom job!

Thank you for posting - that was exactly what I was looking for. Needed to see the layout of the air intake boxes.

I think they all have the same style of intakes, only difference is bigger/better turbos on 2020+ M550 and 2019+ M850

I believe the 2017-2019 intakes point toward the front of the engine whereas the 2020+ point outward to the sides.
