btw did anyone in HK fit the gruppe M intake Clarence?
I used my method of testing (i.e. accelerating from very slow speed up the slope between Lai Tak Tsuen & Cloudview Rd roundabout, trying to find the highest gear the engine will pull smoothly & the gearbox won't change down) & the 528i can pull cleanly in 6th gear.

Don't think anyone fit the Gruppe M intake yet as it's very expensive. It's likely u won't gain anything at all cos the stock intake is very well designed.
