extremely simple. 10 minute job for experienced, 45 minutes for beginner. This can easily be done in your garage using basic tools.

For a 640i (N55) it should fit...

For a 730i you will have problems installing it

Yes for my 640i, apparently a few of the tuners said that it will not fit. Can someone please confirm? Mike?

I don't think it fits the 640i. I would have to double check. You can email me a pic of the engine bay/charge pipe area which would help determine it 100%.

Although the 335/135/640i are using the same N55, the chargepipe, fmic is slightly different.

Checked with my BMW dealership, the F10, F12/13 all share the same chargepipe, same part numbers. So hopefully CP for F10 soon...

We will have a charge pipe released very soon. They will all include two bungs with the correct thickness to prevent meth nozzle from puddling up on the side of the pipe as we have seen on other brands we tested. Msrp will be $299

Take all the necessary measurements -- If you can determine the length of the OEM CP vs an Aftermarket Option, you might be able to make it work with some silicone piping & t-bolt clamps + fabricate a connection to the cold piping from the FMIC. Don't worry about silicone hoses not being strong enough, some CPs use them for their throttle body to CP connection point, just make sure you buy the appropriate strength.

I checked the part numbers for the F10/F13 and both the same. Evolution Racewerks is most probably building me one. Thanks for your advise.
