I'm not too sure if a K&N cold-air would be suited to a 525d. For one, it makes quite the sound when sucking in air. The 525d is a diesel and thus, noisy to start with. Somehow, I feel that the K&N will be out of the 525's character.

Why do you want to upgrade? More power? I hope you know that the incremental power from an air-intake is marginal. You should consider remaps if you really want more punch.
