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?

These intakes will give you at least 100hp measured by the dyno-but-o-meter.

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?
