Great news for 2010 528's!!

I had a discussion on here earlier searching for performance parts such as air intakes as there are none to be found. GREAT NEWS!! The 2009 aFe Cold Air Intakes fit perfectly on the 2010's. The only issue is a rubber grommet the simply slides off from underneath the factory air box, and you have to do some slight bending on the mounting brackets of the new air box. After the it fits like a champ. It gives a nice sound, and the engine noticeably revs faster. I would estimate maybe an extra 10-12 ft lbs of torque, nothing major. I typically average 27.3 mpg, and aroun34 mpg on the highway. Haven't had a chance to test out if there's any increase in mileage yet but I'll report back on that. The sticker I found on Amazon for a couple of bucks. It's kinda dorky, but it makes me laugh when I see a mustang or camero behind me

Aren't you in the incorrect forum? This is the GT (F07) forum.

You know what, you are correct. My apologies for that. No wonder no one replied. I will make that correction! Thanks for the heads up
