Save your money.
IF the claims are true, it is replicable on a dyno. Just have a giant fan blowing at the car while it's on the dyno (in fact you'll often see vids of cars on dynos with giant fans in front to simulate real driving conditions).

HOWEVER, I highly doubt the claim that it'll boost hp by 7-10. If doing something this simple could do that, the eggheads at BMW would have designed it that way, considering how much time they spent coming out with the N20 engine.
