They are called HD (for Home Depot) intakes.

They are stainless steel sink drains that have been placed in the front grill and attached to the intake by ducts.

AA has their own version of the HD intake system.

~900$ isn't really cheap, but definately affordable.

Best sounding exhaust for the E39 M5 imo.

tons of great info.
Best advice given so far ^

My suggestions in this order:

9.5" wheels w/275 rubber in front
Sway bar(s), at least the rear
Short shift kit (I have UUC but have heard Rogue is good too)
Suspension (I'm getting ground control)
Exhaust (won't give you any real power bump but will reduce weight of car by ~50lbs)


Other mods:
Front brake kit
Headers w/ECU tuning (big power gains to be had here)


btw: mine's debadged too.
