The stock brake air ducts don't work well. Order these parts if you want a good fit (these are the factory Mtech brake ducts).

Also, the bumper cover will fit over the bumper best if you have the proper foam pieces that sit behind the bumper cover and provide the foundation for the bumper cover. If you use the stock E60 pieces the fit is poor and you will have gaps between the hood and bumper cover unless you carve or shave away some of the foam material, since the inside of the Mtech bumper cover is a different shape than the stock one.

Use these foam pieces for the best fit (my body shop had no patience for shaving, testing, shaving some more etc.):
