IMO it is the only one that I would buy personally as it looks like an engineered piece of equipment.
I have installed and used the open ones like the K&N on other applications, but the Dinan one just looks right for the X5 - Hi end product.

This posting will get the other brand users up and commenting.......
All the parts are custom made by Dinan and fit perfectly. If the have the CAI they may have or know where to find the Dinan MAF and throttle body that will get the most out of the CAI.

Bcred, its from a 2001 model x5 and im a 2005 so not compatiable from my understanding.
He is also selling dinan exhaust too.
I hope he decides to sell the cai. I know it wont add performance and my only other upgrades r a mapping (thats apparently more powerful than a 4.8iS) and the 4.8iS exhaust installed. More want it for looks and i believe it may change exhaust note slightly.

I think you should buy it and sell to me

Optimus, I believe the seller is having a recount on the price he is selling it for and making up a story to me now about how he can't open his hood to access the part.
I think he will try to sell for more and was just lying to me.

Good luck!

Don't know the answer to that. I would call Dinan and ask.

yeah the Dinan website shows the exhaust and CAI are pretty much only things that the two different model years will share. software/throttle body are different. I don't believe there is a MAF...

Where on the website are you seeing the exhaust and CAI?

Sorry, it was from memory a few years ago. I have spoken with a Dinan instsller here and they also said just those two things will work from the 2000_2003 model to mine v
