BMW 550i Xdrive N63 Cold Air Intake

Does anyone here have a Cold Air Intake on there BMW 550i Xdrive N63 engine using the stock air box. I did some research on it and all I can find is them having them behind the kidney grills, my only concern with that does water get into them? or is there any other kind of setup.

My stock OE CAI - filter box has a very effective water separator.
Scepticism and Animal Faith (1923)
Scepticism is the chastity of the intellect, and it is shameful to surrender it too soon or to the first comer: there is nobility in preserving it coolly and proudly through long youth, until at last, in the ripeness of instinct and discretion, it can be safely exchanged for fidelity and happiness.
(The Works of George Santayana p. 65)
