540i b58 intake options?

What intakes are available specifically for the B58 g30?

It looks like most of the B58 intakes are only compatible with the 3 series and other models.

I've seen the BMS. Anything else out there ?

Thanks for the reply. It looks like they only have downpipe available, no intake.

I'm also interested in this...I've read a few negative/positive things re:cold air intakes (i.e. BMS) increasing power due to higher air flow, but also some negatives with heat soak (due to the intake being right next to the turbo) and also MAF damage (oil...which also affects the K&N filters).

Couldn't find any hard conclusive data one way or another. What have you guys experienced?

From a performance standpoint I haven't experienced any plus or minus (via the butt dyno) from the BMS but I can tell you the volume level of the turbo spool with a BMS is intoxicating under medium and heavy load.

Did you really find a big difference with the BMS intake? I'd heard it could be a little underwhelming(?). I've already fallen into that trap with the MPPSK.

I've heard positive things about Agency Power, but it doesn't look like they have anything for the 540ix

Does anyone know if BMS is available in the UK?

That's how I felt about the BMS intake on my F30 n55 but I've read the opposite about the BMW. Guess I'll have to try it.

Has anyone gotten the Arma speed system and care to comment on like/dislike? Bit expensive at 1k but looks really nice. I am not one that open up the hood though enough to care there is carbon fiber under. I am looking for a closed system that would offer better airflow and sound then the square filter. So it is just BMS and Arma
