Ever since the carbon plenum craze became popular on the V8s, I've been hoping for a solution for the V10.
10x ITBs deserve to sing.
Taking from his expertise on the V8, René @ CarboProject has designed OEM+ carbon plenums for our S85 with a few twists.

These carbon plenums were developed using the lower housings of the OEM plastic plenums.
The top lips are fully replaced & sealed with an enlarged, thinner carbon lids to augment induction noises.
The Export version was developed in early 2021 from US member feedbacks on the V8 application. It has thinner, pre-preg, carbon fiber lids for improved induction noise.
The plenums are available in gloss and matte 2 component hardened clear coat. The Gloss finish option is polished and wet sanded for a mirror like finish.
OEM M5 V10 badges, M Power sticker under the clear coat, or naked. You choose.
Pricing includes a Genuine BMW core. You get to keep your OEM plenum.
This is a simple DIY. Plan for 60 to 120 minutes. Quick tip: grease the rubber couplers before fitting it, and make sure you seal is tight.
I sort of knew what to expect having run the equivalent carbon plenum on my S65 for the last year or so.
But a V10 just sounds different.
My first drive impressions on the OEM+ carbon plenums. I still owe you guys a video.
