An excellent product and well worth the extra money when compared to the normal 57i kit (as compared to other cars with K&N and pipercross upgrades).
I am not mechanicaly minded but with good instructions and a bit of patience this only took an hour to fit.
The system itself looks impressive when fitted and sounds superb. Dont worry, you wont sound like a boy racer, but makes the '5 sound like it always should have.
As far as performance goes there was minimal more 'speed' but it smooths out the acceleration and improves the throttle response. There is also a significant increase in MPG, so if you need permission from another half this is a good selling point!
The best bit about fitting the Typhoon though is definitly the sound, you can be as quiet as you want through town, but when you really want to open up the howl is hypnotic. Im still grinning and I have had it for a month already
