afe cold air intake for 2008 650i

I am considering ordering a "dry" afe cold air intake for my 2008 650i. On afe's website they list only 06 and 07 - does anyone know if it will fit a 2008?
I called afe and they could not help me.

Thanks in advance.

Check with BMW dealer and inquire about 2007 and 2008, if part numbers of the air box and extension piping, etc. are the same, then it should work

Called the dealer and they do not yet have the part #'s for the 2008. Guess I will order and if it does not fit-- I will return it. Unless anyone has any other ideas. thanks!!

If it can be returned in case it didn't fit, why not try !?

If you havent gotten this answered for sure by tomorrow I can find out for you. I work for BMW and I will most likely see an 07 and an 08 tomorrow.
To my knowledge there are no differences in the engines besides possibly software so I can't imagine that it wouldn't fit just fine.

PhilipWOT - if you can double check it for me that we be MUCH appreciated!!

PapaFlEx - I thought any/all chips void the warranty. Will the dealer install it? My dealer is Markell in Omaha NE.

Thanks to all!!

I think zhuskers1 is interested in the upgraded Sound aside to performance

Long time ago thread, I tried the oiled aFe but doesn't have performance nor sound. What should I do. Dinan is a waste of money since I'm changing the car within a year.

"RPI gains HP, AFE loses HP. AFE is subject to radiant hot air from the engine compartment so it is actually a HOT air intake and will cost you HP. The RPI (as almost all members here have) gains HP by using the ram air effect to force air into the well designed stock intake tubing."

"So if you're looking to gain HP get RPI scoops with a BMC high performance air filter. If you're looking for sound and don't mind losing HP the get AFE."

So If I get both will it save the HP and improve the sound?

Not sure... the AFE (hot air) may cancel out any gains that the RPI may produce...

Do you have an exhaust system?

If not check out these guys for "improved sound"

www aaaexhaust .com

I've actually be contemplating "biting the bullet" and going for the Dinan CAI. At least we know it works...17HP + 10 TQ
