Any issues with BMS Intake?

I was looking to purchase the BMS intake for my F10 535i. What improvements did you guys see? Any sound improvement?

I heard that removing it and going back to stock later is hard because the plastic shroud shrinks and the OEM will not fit anymore.

I have and love the BMS intake.

Improvements include better responsiveness in the mid to high range of the power band and much better sound. I kind of feel like the very low end suffered in Comfort mode (like going from a complete stop) but I drive in Sport mode most of the time so it's not really affecting me. I haven't tried going back to stock, but I made sure not to over-tighten the clamp.

Caveat: it could be that I forgot how the stock intake felt, so it could feel exactly the same.
