Do ypu have a pic of the small air line and where it goes? I am not sure where the secondary air pump is on the N62.

looked into the software but it would overwrite my existing custom software and those pesky Dinan e53 parts are hard to come by too.
I have debated even selling the Dinan CAI and re-installing the factory airbox. I feel like having the Dinan CAI without anything else is almost a waste...except for the soun I get. the Dinan air filter made the x5 sound like a BEAST. This Volant air filter makes it sound louder than factory air box, yet quieter than a cone style filter.

What does the volant air filter look like and what is the part number? Can you provide a link?

Okay thanks I see it now. Wow a $100 air filter that has great filtration capabilities (99.9%) but no mention of flow. You mentioned that the X5 sounds different with this air filter on vs the cone filter. Can you elaborate on the difference in sound with the Volant filter vs the traditional cone filter?Thanks

Just that it's quieter sound than the traditional cone filter (probably due to more filtering) yet it's beefier that the factory air box.

ok, sorry to revive an old thread, but I just can't state enough how the N62, 4.4i, through a factory 4.8iS exhaust muffler system WITH this Dinan CAI box & Donaldson air filter sounds like a beefed up, and I mean BEEFED UP, X5. I honestly don't want to sell it and upgrade to a newer X5 as I worry it would never sound as mean as this. The in and outflow of air/exhaust is just something to be heard in person. SO MANY PEOPLE compliment the sound since I installed the Dinan CAI box/cone filter, then I removed the Dinan cone air filter and installed the Donaldson/Volant column filter and it still sounds simply eargasmic.
I may run the Dinan cone air filter a bit over summer to hear how it sounds again on a long highway haul. It is just unreal.
