Lawren Yes I added the aFe. I got it from turnermotorsport.com I do like it. I also got the pre-filter sock for it. (not pictured). The install was VERY simple. Gains... sure, it seems to pull harder above 4K. Great sound as a bonus.

There was someone selling one here in the classifieds a week or so ago.

One more for fun

Wow! Nice pictures - did you clay and wax that yourself?

True, BMW parts department had a price increase the first week in June. Though I am not sure if it is across the board on everything.

Actually low demand would cause the price to drop.

also, what do you guys think the going rate for oem aluminum running boards should be these days?

Hot and sexy. Great metallic color with depth. E39 M5, X5 4.8is and now the new M3 will have the LeMans blue . Running boards will look great. You will have to buy new flares though. I put all four when I put r/b.
