Gruppe M intake

Apparently this was released sometime last week.

http://www.gruppem.co.jp/application...mw_e60_m5.htm#

That's one freaking expensive intake.
So who wants to be first to try it and tell us if it works?

Gruppe M make parts with outstanding quality but are pricey...a buddy of mine has a Gruppe M intake and exhaust on his 355 and it sounds just like an F1 car!...they seem to use carbon kevlar in everything haha

the dyno-but-o-meter.. is not a very reliable tool, but I would think that getting the loudest exhaust out there would also add many butt-felt-horses, but not that many real ones.

LOL Ok let's cut the bs with the dyno-but-o meter or wallet o meter, brain o meter, chick-o-meter...or whatever meter. How many real hp would you think it will add? BHP?
And how much would it cost?
