Went out and took a pic for you. This is my 2008 535xi with the UR front strut tower brace.

You see I do not have the stock air box but it does fit - tight but it works.

bottom left of the photo is my meth pump

I got it from Jurrian at Modbargains. He also price matched it so it was a little cheaper.

Oh damn I didn't realize the UR one goes under the V brace. I figured that all the strut bars would go over it.

I assume the M5 Pull Bars are BMW OEM parts. I emailed Tischer for a price on the M5 Pull Bars but they don't know what I'm taliking about. Does anyone have part numbers for the pull bars?
