First of all, I just couldn't take the small risk of having them void the warranty. It is possible that they could note down you have an intake, and if you have future problems with the intake, you are out of luck. Very small chance of this possibility but a possibility nonetheless.

So I took out the BMS filter in about 10 seconds, and I have spent a good hour trying to put in the stock intake... the intake tubes are just not going in.
My hands are all scratched up, I give up I'm bringing it in with the BMS filter I guess.
BMW made it almost impossible to put it back in if you take it out.
